Pumpkins in March
While others are planting their pumpkin seeds for harvesting in the fall I have managed to produce pumpkins in March. I must be a creative gardener!(LOL)
stitched 2/2 & 1/2 on 32 ct platinum lugana
with the suggested DMC floss">
In preparation for our trip to the US I started this project on March 6 (yes friends 2009) and had completed the small design in the top left hand corner as well as the top border before leaving home.
As all of my SP friends know I spent my Wednesday stitching hours gabbing and probably managed to stitch about five letters all day. After leaving Las Vegas I did manage to stitch a wee bit more.
Since the pattern requires only full stitches and is small enough to handle in small spaces I decided that this would be my travel piece and once we got home I put it away. However, I kept on thinking about it and how I really wanted to keep on stitching on this fun piece and within the next few days I picked it up again. My goodness - cross-stitching is my hobby (or should I say obsession?) and I should be stitching what I want, when I want. Don't you agree?
This past Saturday evening I put in the last stitch and I feel very satisfied with the finished piece.
I made one small change and that is one I would certainly advise anyone still starting this pattern to make. Rather than stitch the earth at the bottom of the pattern 2/2 I opted for 1/2 which makes the pumpkins a little more prominent.
Have a good week everyone and stay tuned as my next finish should be coming up within the week.
