This month I took
a little sewing liberty with
my monthly mini.
I had been wanting to do something
that showcased October.
I had purchased a pattern
last year when I was in Houston
for festival from Primitive Gatherings.
It fit all the required criteria.
But I didn't want to do ghost pumpkins,
so I dug out the orange wools instead
and started stitching.
11" x 30"
Pumpkins, wool, fun stitching,
the feeling of fall.
It all came together.
The bittersweet vine doesn't grow
here, so it's nice
to include it on this runner
with clusters of little colonial knots.
Fall has arrived here
and this little runner
reminds us of the crisp air,
the need to slow down,
and enjoying everything pumpkin.
Several of you asked about the crayon tinting
that I did in my embroidery.
I learned how to do it from Meg Hawkey
of Crabapple Hill Studios and have
found her techniques to be very successful.
Click on this LINK for
a YouTube video that Meg made
explaining in wonderful detail how
to use your Crayola crayons
with your embroidery.
Now you can have fun coloring too.
Until Next Time-
