Day 4 for the Fall-O-Ween Blog Hop! I hope you're enjoying all the posts and free projects. Did I mention that Pat Sloan has set up a Flickr group page for you to post photos of your finished projects?
You can find it here.
It's amazing how fast you guys are in getting these projects completed!
So, today's topic is TEXTURE. (ok, for some reason, I suddenly feel like I am back in elementary school where we had to write something about a specific topic each day....)
When I think of fall, the most obvious texture that comes to mind is the dried grass and leaves.
There is a pumpkin patch nearby that we used to go to when the kids were little. It was fun to go "crunching" through the fields searching for that perfect pumpkin to carve.
You know, that perfect pumpkin that was just the right size, that would stand upright and not list to one side, that still had a good stem on it to serve as the "handle" for the lid. And when we found it, we would bring it home and experience another texture that I associate only with the fall....
Pumpkin guts! Eeeoowwww! It was always Tom's job to clean the pumpkin out, because I didn't like doing that part. The thing I liked doing was the carving...
I don't know if you can see it, but there is some kind of ghostly ghoul carved into that pumpkin. I don't carve pumpkins like that any more, but it's fun to look back at the photos we took of them.
And tomorrow, we get to talk about clothes, which is another type of texture. (It's funny how so many of these topics overlap each other.) So, for today, you need to check out Kari's blog at New Leaf Stitches, to get your free project.
And leave her a comment so that she knows you were there and you can be in the drawing for the grand prize. I think that my day for the free project is drawing near, so I'd better get to work and figure out what I'm going to make. I'll be back tomorrow!!
