Winky Blinky and Nod

Oh boy.
What did I get myself into?
I decided to make Halloween banners
for the gift shop.
I saw them for sale at $25 for a 5 foot one.
We have 20 feet for the space I wanted.
Plus I want two rows....
so I figured I could make them myself.
Have been working on them for the last 2 days.
I want our store to be so cool for Halloween.
It took me 2 hours to just draw and cut 
out the flags from the fabric.
2 yards each of orange, yellow and two blacks.
Will show once completed.
Glad I took the week off to get these finished.
I have one row done now.
One more to go.
I made mine 26 feet long so it will drape.

Today I want to show you my latest
pumpkin brothers.

Meet Winky.
He is the outgoing brother.
Winks constantly at others and very social.

Blinky squints all of the time.
He refuses to go to the eye doctor,
because he thinks glasses will not look good.

Nod stays up all night
so he nods off all of the time during the day.

These pumpkin pillows
were made from wool.

Their colors are more true in this picture.

Well of to finish banner number two.
Then onto other projects.

Pumkin Brother Blessings To All!
