Primitive Ole Pumpkin Man Doll

Every once in a while, I'll get the itch to make a primitive doll. I've had this pumpkin man pattern for quite awhile but thought is was lost forever in the craft dungeon! My craft room can be quite the scary place! LOL!

I listed this Primitive Old Pumpkin Man Doll this afternoon on eBay. If you want to read a little more about this guy, please click on the photograph and off to eBay land you will go.

Primitive Grungy Fall Pumpkin e~Pattern

Hello Everyone!

The crisp days of Fall are almost upon us. We are enjoying our garden veggies and Andy's giant sunflowers. Our rose garden is exploding with blooms. The blue jays are enjoying their peanuts and soon the hummingbirds will migrate south, but for the moment, I'm enjoying their compmay. Fall is my favorite time of the year!

I wrote two genealogy related articles this month for The Olde Prairie Register. The first article is titled, A Little Thing Called Genealogy. If you are a parent or grandparent, I hope after reading this article you are inspired to record your family history for your children and granchildren. The other ariticle, The Mystery Child tells the story of my maternal great-great grandmother, Maria Cordoba, from Missouri. If you have some time later this week, click on the link below and read some fun articles!

My great-great maternal grandparents: William Henry and Maria Cordoba Medders Reed

I also found some time over the weekend to list a fun, fast and easy e~Pattern for my Primitive Grungy Fall Pumpkin. For more information, just click on the picture you'll be whisked off to Pattern Mart!! The paper (snail mail) version will be available soon on eBay.

Primitive Fall Blessings to You!

Deanna :)
