This is a Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery design. I am thrilled to bits with this piece. I enjoyed it so much and all the little birds and characters are too cute. I stitched this on 14 count aida that I had on hand when I first started it. Its a marbled green and I'm pretty sure it was DMC that I bought on clearance. I think it looks great with the colors in the design.
The border is so fun. It wasn't too tricky either and actually stitched up pretty easily.
I did end up backstitching some of the parts that were not showing up well and I'm glad I did because it makes the images pop. I also reversed the colors for the outer and inner border. The green I used on the outer border was intended for the inner lines but I thought the green would look good against the green fabric.
I don't know which block is my favorite...maybe Ten Lords a'Leaping, but I like Three French Hens too.
I'm so happy to have finally finished this piece. I'm not sure what I will do with it. I think it will great as a pillow so maybe I will do that. I've got all year to decide to have it ready for next Christmas!
It feel nice to have a finish and hopefully it will be a trend for the year!!
'Til next time...
