1 X More

Dan gave me personalized license plates for my birthday. And what is that you are seeing in the background??? Could it be more snow?





Here is my progress on Pretty Pumpkins. The leaves took a long time to do so I was happy to move back to the colourful pumpkins. Alas as I was about to do the swirly thing on the pumpkin on the far right I realized that I had used the wrong colour on the swirly thing in the first section of that pumpkin. Since it is easier to do the second swirly thing in the wrong colour too than it is to take the first one out I guess I will have unique pretty pumpkins. The whole problem appears to be that I did not read the pattern closely enough. There are two * symbols....one with heavy lines and one with light lines (Why do designers do this?) and I mixed them up! Fortunately the colours are close enough that they still look OK. Of course if they had been vastly different I may have noticed my error...OH Well...

I love the plates, and yes, alas we have more snow here this morning as well, just enough to make the roads a little slick - hope Dani has a safe drive to your place!
The pumpkins look lovely, even if you found a slight booboo.

Great plates there girl. More snow, my goodness - where will you put it! I can't believe all the snow you guys have received. Pretty pumpkins is looking good and it is now unique with your color variations.

Happy Birthday, Ann! I love the pumpkin piece. There is absolutely no way I would unpick from 25 ct fabric! Much better to do the next pumpkin to match.
