Sorry this is so dark but you still can see it a little
Front of the piece and the stitched pin cushion. She does give you directions for making the wool pumpkin shown on the chartpak, but I haven't made it yet. I also did a fob with the flower you see in the center of the vase, but I haven't actually assembled it yet.
This is the back, obviously, and while there is still blank space it doesn't seem to bother me plus it would have been hard to do a design in that space for me. I am so use to transferring her designs to 18 or 20 count over 2 to make pillows and banners it was strange at first to be working on 28 over 1, but I loved it and will now start on Summer in Baltimore.
And the final show and tell which I had ready for Jackie DuPlessis weekend were 3 of the Stranded Jacks, a nautical set of Halloween ornaments from Plum Street Sampler (actually released in 2012 but I just got around to it).
I found the mini fall milk can at Michael's and had an excuse to assemble the ornaments on dowels. Such a cute way to use an ornament if you don't have a year round tree. I had seen a Halloween mini milk can just like this but decided I had spent enough at Michael's but when they went to 70% I decided I could afford it and went back. By then the Halloween was gone but the fall was still there so I went for it. The ornaments were stitched on 36 ct. Weeks Confederate Grey using the suggested fibers. Since I've already done 8 of these types ornaments for Noah's Ark Christmas by Plum Street I can whip them up quickly, thank God! So that's my show and tell for now. I'm busy working on more fall for the Delaware Guild retreat. I'll keep you posted. Hope those of you who are in the path of the hurricane stay safe inside and have lights to stitch. I've made sure I've got batteries in my clip on lights so I'm covered and hopefully we are all safe and this bugger just knocks itself out. Now back to stitching for the Delaware Valley Sampler Guild. I think I have enough time to do a few more smalls. Fingers ctossed! Have a great week, and for those of you anywhere near the path of Florence, keep your head down, stay inside, I'll be praying we all stay safe while she swings by. Don't forget batteries for you clip on stitching lights.
