Bear Patch Becomes Pumpkin Patch For A Day!

Yesterday we had a bumper crop of pumpkins here!  We had a full class of pumpkin creators and lots of laughs!  Here are some examples--

These are made from the Mini Pumpkins pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful and is made with the Mini Quick Curves Ruler.
As a special bonus, everyone in the class got instructions for the mini pineapple block.  The bottom part is made just like the pumpkins, and the leaves are a free download on their website. 

For an added bit of fun, our afternoon treat was Pineapple Poke Cake!
Even though I improvised on the recipe, it turned out tasty!
I baked a regular yellow cake mix according to directions.  Then I poked holes all over the top.
I had a can of crushed pineapple, and I ran that through the food processor to make kind of a slurry.  I poured that on the cake and let it soak in.  I smeared back and forth a bit to get more of the good stuff into the cake, and left a thin layer of pineapple on top.  Topped with whipped cream makes a perfect ending!
