Pie Pumpkins

I cannot believe it is August already.
Taking my mom to therapy 3 days a week,
working on goodies for the prim show
which is next month, and work...
I have not been able to enjoy the dock yet.
On weekends I usually take
 my bag and work on things
while watching the boats and freighters go by.
Not this year so far...not even a vacation yet.
However still working on items.

Today I wanted to show you my pie pumpkins.
Fabric on top and wool on the bottom.

The stems can be bended any way you want.
Trade secret on how I do this is.

I just love the shape of these.

Gramma B would use pie pumpkins to make
pumpkin pie.
I can smell them coming out of the oven as I type.

Now of course I was not satisfied with making
just white ones, so I also made black.

Again using fabric and wool.

I like both colors and have one more color to finish.
Can you guess what color that might be?
I am also going to make myself some...
and will make some even smaller to mix in.

Yesterday was hubby Bob's birthday.
Our worker surprised him with this cake
her sister decorated and balloons.
I love how they used goldfish crackers
to use as party balloons!
I also had a cake waiting for him at home...
but forgot to take a picture of it.
He doesn't want me to say this...
but Happy 55th birthday sweetie!!!

Hope everyone enjoys their half of the weekend.
What did you do on this 1st weekend of August?

Pie Pumpkin Blessings To All!
