Scrappy 4

I finally sat down and finished a few more pumpkins. 
There are only four more to complete before I add sashing. 
I'm feeling a bit slow so don't hold your breath on seeing this finished anytime soon. 

I did a bit of hand work. It was procrastination. I should have started it weeks ago but I forgot. 
It needed to be done for a party last night and amazingly I finished it just in time. 
I hadn't done reverse appliqué in awhile but it went smoothly. 
I made an awfully ugly cake but I was in a hurry and ran out of cream cheese. I had already made three batches of Maple Cream Cheese frosting and I was pressed for time. 
I listen to Hubby and wished what he said would be true, "It doesn't have to look good to taste good".
I think he was right again because I came home with less than I brought!

Have a Happy day!
Take care, Brandie

Even if it's not Martha Stewart pretty, it sounds delicious. I could really go for some Maple Cream Cheese Frosting right now! Nice job on the pumpkins too.
