Halloween pumpkins

I finally finished the stitching for my three pumpkins (small, medium, and large) that I've been working on here and there. I still need to turn them into stuffed pumpkins, but that will wait for a while. The pieces are called Three Pumpkins by Prairie Grove Peddler.

I'm working on Teresa Wentzler's Dragon Ride at the moment. So far it's just some work on the border. I brought it with me on our cruise to the Bahamas in September, but my aging eyesight couldn't handle it. I think it's time for bifocal contact lenses or one near/one far.

My first needlefelted project

I've had this kit for a while, ever since I fell for it after seeing a Nordic Needle email about it. I've bought some books, more needles, and various colors of wool, but I haven't figured out what I want to work on next.

I also have this vague fear of starting a new craft. I build it up in my mind, plan what I want to do, and then fear that it won't turn out like I want or will be more difficult than I thought. This is a new thing for me, and I'm trying to work through it. I'm usually indomitable when it comes to crafts. But it's been this way for my desire to paint watercolors and do beading projects. Maybe I can work on that over the holiday break. Four days for Thanksgiving, so I have a little time.
