A Whimsical Pumpkin Figure

I'm feeling silly and sometimes this silliness takes over me.  I wanted to make a glam and glitzy pumpkin, but all I can come up with is something cute and whimsical.  At least I hope it is.   Meet my whimsical pumpkin figure.
Bright eyed and smiling!
I started with a large plain pumpkin I got last year at Hobby Lobby at the end of the season for 80% off.  I picked up three at that price.

I can't draw so I enlarge a face pattern I found online and tried to trace it on the pumpkin. There are too many ridges for the carbon to take so I had to cut out the eyes and trace around them using a sharpie paint pen.

I started filling in the black portion of the eyes . . .
While the paint was drying, I attached fiber-fill stuffed socks from the dollar store for legs to the bottom of the pumpkin. I also tied raffia to the ends of the socks.



I made arms out of stuffed scrap fabric and wire and poked them into the sides of the pumpkin sealing with hot glue.
Hi there!

Whoops!
Alrighty then!


I'm ready for fall!  How bout you?


Take a little time to enjoy!

  16. Outlook from Microsoft is an integral part of our daily life. It's how we get and send communications from the sources to which we're linked. Things usually work out better, but there are occasions when there are concerns. Outlook still has a lot of flaws and errors, and we try our hardest to fix them as we come across them because there is still a way to fix them. One of the bugs is always an error [pii_email_84eb7572bd91baae7e9f]

  17. A microinverter is an electronic device designed to convert the direct current (DC) generated by solar panels to alternating current (AC). It is attached to solar panels and converts the current separately. The Micro Inverter Market is different from string and central inverters, which are primarily used for utility-sized solar power stations. In India, solar microinverters are gaining immense traction as they are safe, reliable, and cost-effective. They also help to minimize the risk of fire, dissipate significantly less heat, operate without noise and produce more electricity. Besides this, the increasing cost of fossil fuels is making solar power an economical substitute, thereby augmenting the demand for microinverters across the region. Numerous other factors, such as rapid urbanization, extensive expenditure for the development of solar power infrastructure and the growing utilization of Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) are expected to further bolster the market growth in the coming years.
