This was "The Gang's All Here" designed to go on the top of one of the tin boxes I've been going on about. So the design is 2" X 2" and fits on a tin box, stitched over 1 with 1 thread on 32 ct. PTP Pampus linen. I finished it with black chenille around the design. The 2nd design had to be different in size due to the fact the original tin box was discontinued. This required!a lot more design, ugh!
This was called, "Pumpkins for Sale" and it too was stitched on 32 ct. Pampus PTP linen over 1 thread using 1 strand. I cannot tell you how relieved I was after getting them to the stitchers, but I am serious about never having to design again. HATED IT! My theory has always been that I don't need to design my own as I love what is being designed by others and wouldn't be able to think of anything greater than that. Glad I'm done with that. Since I started the blog I slipped out to the car and here's the result of my pumpkin stitching. Sara and I went to Serendipity Quilt Shop to get some fabric and on the way back stopped at Michael's to get more pumpkins, just in case my order doesn't get here by the weekend. It's going to be a pumpkin palooza at the hotel for CA Wells Memorial Weekend.
