Pumpkin

 For me there are two sides to Halloween the Autumn colours everywhere pumpkin lanterns and warming foods all of which I like then there is the dark side with ghoulish sculls, ghosts, witches and spiders!
which I don't like :(
'Pumpkin'
layers of frayed edged fabric and dyed scrim 
hand embroidered pumpkin on linen scrap with sparkly fiery orange crystals.  
 I started off with two little Halloween themed embroideries,
 I was going to do a double layered tag but
 went round in circles and nothing looked right 
so I resorted to using a fabric background.
I'm quite happy now with my Pumpkin tag :)
I'm sure I'll be able to use the spider in something else

  4. Such sweet little samples - they are so beautifully sewn and the pumpkin one makes a great tag, especially with that gorgous matching autumn background!
