UFO, Pin Cushion, and Pumpkins

I have been inspired by several blogs lately that have been working on UFOs. This UFO has been partial finished for at least 4 years now. It is a broken dish pattern out of a Fons and Porter magazine. Of course I can't find the magazine any more. I know that the pattern calls for a border, but I'm not sure what size so I guess I will wing it. I am also open to ideas. I hope to have this finished for my December for my mother's b-day. She hardly ever reads my blog, but my dad does. (So please don't tell her.)

I know what your thinking, "What is Bo doing with a pumpkin in August?" My Father-in-law was kind enough to grow some pumpkins for me this year. He had never planted any before and he planted them early. The pumpkins will never last until Halloween. So Bo and I are baking them. Luck for me I love anything with pumpkin.

Pumpkins in the oven. If you know any good pumpkin recipes please let me know.

I wanted to make something tonight, but I couldn't decide what to make. I ended up making the Heather Bailey Square Deal Pin Cushion. It went together fairly easy. I plan to give this one to a sewing friend, and may end up making more.
