We are going to get the first frost soon so I cut all of Mom's pie pumpkins for her this morning. The plants had a disease so most of the pumpkins are small. I couldn't resist painting some even though it's still too early for Halloween decorating. They were really quick and simple to paint, I just used spirals, dots and stripes and continued the design up the pumpkin stems.
They are a lot like my fall stripes bead actually.
