Fall Centerpiece

I put this little Fall centerpiece together for the table.  The base is a copper charger that my son and daughter-in-law purchased for me in Mexico.  They bought a total of 8 of these copper chargers as my Christmas present a few years ago.  They are handmade and lovely.  I made the pumpkin a few years ago from a quilted metallic fabric.  It is much brighter and more colorful than the photo.  The pattern was in a magazine.  I made a few with cotton fabric for family members and this special one for myself. 

The acorns are from the oak trees on our Ky property.  The leaves are the ones I made with my Janome 11000 embroidery machine in September.  I probably should put a table runner under it but I like the simplicity of the piece.  It's easy to move, if needed.
