Try It Tuesday~ another pumpkin and apron!!!

 Hi guys~
Yes another pumpkin. I had three that needed some TLC for sure.  This is no. #2.
I have done one more for Clear Scraps so be looking for that one in Nov.
I re-painted and covered the stem with burlap and started arranging flowers and fall leaves around the stem.

 The flower made out of netting is buy The Curtsey Boutique, gorgeous, right?
That flower was the inspiration for this piece.

I put felt on the bottom of the pumpkin. Makes it nice for sitting on tables.
Remember the carpenter's aprons~
Well I had a sweet friend ask me for some material because she wanted to give it a try, so here is 
Karen's ( Roosterhead Designs) Apron~

I love how it came together and all the cool stuff she has in the apron.  To see more of Karen's gorgeous work, here is her gallery link.
Take care and I'll see ya soon~
