Happy Thanksgiving a bit late!

Happy Thanksgiving....a couple of days late!! 
 I hope everyone had a very enjoyable thanksgiving.  I know this holiday is about spending time with the people you love the most so according to that I guess I did just that only you would have to change people to person.  It was just me and the hubby spending the day together again this year. I am very thankful that I wasnt completely alone but it is a very sad holiday to not have family around. It sure seemed like an awful lot of work to do a full on Thanksgiving dinner for just two but after eating leftovers for two days in a row it seemed to make it more worthwhile. 
These are the little motifs I made for thanksgiving.  

As I was making the little ghosties for Halloween I left the little pumpkin (actually an apple pattern by Mark Myers) that I decided didn't look like a pumpkin, laying out on my table. The more I looked at it the more I got to thinking that it wouldn't be too difficult to change the stem to make it look more like a pumpkin instead of an apple.  So the orange part is from Marks pattern and the stem is my first attempt at doing my own pattern.  Doing a split ring at the top made it a bit more dimensional.  I made 9 of these little doodads and I am going to call these number 24 in the 25 motif challenge. Looking at those two numbers together just made me realize I only have one more motif to go to meet the challenge! WWWHHOO!!
