If you have a garden, then you know that right now the pumpkins are looking like….PUMPKINS! It’s so exciting to walk among the thick green, twisting vines and large lush leaves and capture a glimpse of your favorite pumpkin growing bigger every day!
Well, the same thing has been happening in the shop since mid-July! …well, sort of! We have been creating pumpkins, and more pumpkins, and even more pumpkins, of all sizes. A customer had even custom ordered an extremely large pumpkin and we just knew it would have won the State Fair Blue Ribbon, if it had been real!
Felting and creating with beautiful colors of dyed sheep wool is so exciting; however, even more rewarding is knowing the creations will last for years! The felted pumpkins themselves were adorable as just rounded shapes of orange colored wool. But when the green highlights, stems, vines, and leaves went on, they suddenly became magical for me and I expected my fairy godmother to appear at any moment and begin singing, ” Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.”
This week at the shop we have quite a few private parties booked and one regularly scheduled class all taking place with the common theme: Pumpkin Felting!! I am looking forward to watching camaraderie ignited, memories made, and treasured pumpkins taken home.
