Oooooh, the air is getting cooler and the nights are getting longer... Fall has arrived and that means it's time for pumpkins.... Hooray!!
So I figured it's the perfect time to release this popular design I've only offered as a cyber class for the past two years -- PUMPKIN PATCH:
Yup. It's got everything fun about this time of year - a festive pumpkin patch surrounded by a split rail fence, filled with loads and loads of pumpkins, black birds, and a cute smiling scarecrow. It's a small piece, only 8" x 8" on sandstone 18 ct. canvas, but it packs a LOT of fun threads and stitches inside. Here's a look up close at the central scene, plus you get a glimpse at the easy-to-stitch pumpkins, blossoms, and leaves that fill the squares around the center:
I've listed several different types of variegated threads like Gentle Art Sampler threads and #5 Painter's Threads (used for the brick walkway and the green/gold/brown foundation grids) but you can definitely pull threads from your stash to use instead, in whatever Halloweeny colors you have on hand.
So Stitchers, if you LOVE working on Halloween projects, this is definitely one for your stash.... and hey, it's also a fun piece to keep hanging up through Thanksgiving, until you start decorating for the next big holiday!
If this little piece of pumpkin heaven calls to you, please hitch up your wagon and drive on over to my website to see the information for this fun PUMPKIN PATCH design.
