A few pumpkin themed finishes.
The last few cross stitch things I finished have been under wraps while I was waiting for them to be received by the person I stitched them for.
I'm happy to say they have arrived at their destination so I'm now able to show them here.
The first one is Just Nan Autumn in the Square finished as a pinkeep. I had originally finished it as a flat fold but my flat fold making skills were not up to the mark and I wasn't happy with the way it looked.
I spent a week or more tweaking it here and there until finally I could stand it no more and took it apart to start over.
I didn't care for the visions charm I had purchased with the chart so I substituted a little squirrel charm instead.
The second piece is one of the JBW French Country series stitched using Carrie's Threads Caribou Hyde. I substituted the alternative French wording for pumpkin and finished it off as a flanged pillow using the same fabric I used to back the pinkeep.
I passed the chart for the JBW piece on to Nadine so over to you Nadine - I shall expect to see your interpretation of this chart soon :)
Lastly, a little scissor keeper by the Drawn Thread using DMC threads.
