A New Finish Tonight


This is a piece I started years ago..I pick it up every time this year and work on it, but then I lose interest quickly and then it gets put away for another year. I was determined to finish it this time, and THIS YEAR! :)
This is called "In Search Of The Perfect Pumpkin" by Heart In Hand.
This is stitched on 28 count Annabelle "potato" fabric (one of my favorite fabrics!) with DMC threads.
I used leaf buttons that I had.

I am so glad that I have finally finished this piece. I am planning on framing this, and perhaps leave it hanging year round in my kitchen.

Now, perhaps onto another UFO that I started years ago, another Fall design...

***Thank you for your posts and kind comments, someone asked me if the border is supposed to be different on the bottom than the top and sides. The answer is, yes. That is the way the chart is made, and I stitched it the way it was charted***

Raggedy Stitches,
Louise
