I was making flowers for my pillows today, and I had some extra "flower" swirlies.. so I added some to the top of the small pumpkin.
Also, I made this orange pillow and added some orange detail to the blue pillow. I'm really into blue and orange these days.
Ta-Da! Sunday craft project!! Maybe these Fall-inspired crafts will inspire our weather to chill out a bit.

Kent and Sherri Winder, owners of Winder Farms and parents of West Valley City Mayor Mike Winder, were in a fatal traffic crash Sunday in Washington County.
Sherri Winder, 57, died in the crash; Kent Winder, 62, was injured, troopers said.
Kent Winder was driving a 2009 Toyota Corolla south on Interstate 15 at 6:15 p.m. about 20 miles north of St. George, when the car rolled off the roadway, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Amy Fallows.
Heavy rains were falling and may have contributed to the crash, Fallows said.
Mike Winder described Sherri Winder as "the best mom anyone could ever have and so supportive of her kids and their endeavors."
"She cheered on each of her kids as they pursued their dreams and overcame their challenges," he said.
Mike Winder said his father’s injuries were not life-threatening. His father may be discharged from a hospital Monday, he said.
As co-owners of Winder Farms, Kent and Sherri Winder, of West Valley City, oversaw its expansion into Nevada and initiated deliveries in southern Utah, according to information on the company’s website,winderdairy.com.

The last of the Harry Potter movies came out this weekend. It was bittersweet, and yes I did go to the midnight showing.... but in remembrance of Harry Potter and how he's been apart of my life for many years.. I am posting a Harry Potter beatnik poem that I (with the help of my sister, Maren) wrote as a book report in 8th grade. This was based on The Prisoner of Azkaban (book 3). I performed this in front of my class with a set of bongo drums, and our pet rat "Basil" on my shoulder. Yes, I've always been a little nerdy.

This one has a lot of texture on the skirt, lots of ruffles. It's a bit "princessy" for my taste, but hey... who doesn't secretly want to be a princess waltzing around with a gay man?
The ruffles on this one will look AWESOME when doing latin, especially because it's around the hips!
This one is really simple, and kind of looks like a giant t-shirt, but I think with the right weight of fabric and enough draping, it will do the trick of accentuating the hips in the latin dances.
I wanted to do something with feathers.. I really love the bottom of it.. but I don't love the top half. I might do something a bit simpler.
