Stashbusting Sunday: Pumpkins and a recipe

'Tis the season for pumpkin everything.
I crocheted these little pumpkin embellishments last month but never had a chance to post about them.
Pattern can be found here.

And made a little jack-o-lantern treat bag for Halloween.
With Thanksgiving a few weeks away, there's still time for more pumpkin making.
I used one of the pumpkin embellishments along with free papers from Mollie Makes to create a simple little gift tag.  
After posting it to my Instagram account, I was contacted by Mollie Makes about the possibility of it being used as a diy on their blog.

   The pattern for this stuffed pumpkin can be found at My Merry Messy Life.
So quick and easy to make.
I did less rows for the smaller one.

And finally, vegan pumpkin beer bread.
A versatile, very moist bread, a little sweet, a little savory.  I had it for breakfast with coffee and also with curried vegetable soup for lunch or dinner.
Recipe is from The Frosted Vegan.

Linda's Crafty Corner is where you can find more stashbusting posts.  Linda recently informed me that my flower mandala coasters was the most clicked post in September.
Thanks, Linda, for hosting.


Have a great day!

You are so creative and your artistic skills are awesome...Charlie Brown and Snoopy and The Great Pumpkin? Amazing!
You're famous! Mollie Makes? I love their magazine I just can't afford it. But if you get published I will have to somehow get a hold of that copy. It is darling and I love all your pumpkins.
I will have to try that pumpkin beer bread....2 of my favorite things! LOL! Yes, the walking here has been so great and it feels so good to be out and about again. Nature is so good for you.

Such adorable crocheting finishes, Tammy! I love the little pumpkin appliques. We're a big fan of the Great Pumpkin in our house :-) Thanks for the recipe link; it looks delicious. Take care :-)

Linda said...

Cute pumpkin items. From a non-vegan household, I will actually make this bread, using normal flour and butter though because that's what I have on hand in the house. I actually have the Agave Nectar because that's something we have on hand for Margaritas! ;) This is not an area of the country where it's easy to find vegan ingredient items, so I was happy that this is a manageable recipe for me that I can try. : )

Have a beautiful new week. I can't believe it's already Monday here, feels like I never left the office.
