I love pumpkins. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin coffee creamer, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin soup... Well, you get the idea. (Thanks to Pinterest, I found diary-free, egg-free and gluten-free recipes that allow me to keep these favorites in my diet. Yay!)
Last fall, when I saw this darling pumpkin cross-stitch pattern Pamela Kellogg shared in the Autumn 2015 Edition of the Crazy Quilt Quarterly, I knew I would stitch it some day. Last week, I finally did! (Please note: I am not affiliated with the magazine. I just love it!)
I used waste canvas, which always makes it difficult for me to keep my stitches even. However, I still love how this turned out on the spider web fabric I found in my fabric stash.
Every year, I plant pumpkins. They never do very well. However, the ones that pop up from my compost make up for that!
I have 4 pumpkins harvested and ready to puree and another 4 still ripening on the vines outside.
This week, I have also been making a wee bit of progress on an under-the-sea themed glasses case I am making to put in my Etsy shop. (Yes... I do still hope to add inventory to my poor empty Etsy shop... I suppose I need to stop giving away the items I have made for that purpose - as I did with 3 of the first 4 things I made for it! )
1.) What is (are) your favorite color(s)?
2.) What is your favorite theme? (For example, I love pumpkins and snowmen, autumn and Christmas.)
3.) Have you ever tried Bullet Journaling? If so, do you like it? (I discovered the idea on Pinterest and Instagram and opted to try it out using a spare composition notebook we had on hand.)
I am linking up with Stitchery Link Party #76 at Super Mom - No Cape! Please check it out! And, if you do any hand embroidery, I encourage you to join the party by sharing a link to your hand embroidery post.
