At last, I have begun!
You are not seeing things! Yes it is a hand embroidery project!
The pattern is called Autumn's Harvest Pumpkin by Crab-Apple Hill. I just love their designs.
It is fall and I since I do love pumpkins, what better hand embroidery pattern to begin! I will say I'm a tad rusty. The stitches are not looking as lovely as I would like them to be, but it's a start!
I will admit, I'm a tad lost with some of the terms. Hence why I started with the words and will work my way via the process of elimination.
For the pumpkin outline it calls for a fly stitch. I really have no clue what that is. I'm thinking that it's the stitch that extends from the pumpkin outline. I lent my hand embroidery book by Judith Baker Montano to my mother so I have no reference in which to look.
If you recall mom is supposed to be embroidering the panels on the French Cottage Garden Quilt for my daughter. Wendy has made the same quilt, hence where my inspiration came from, thank you again Wendy. As Kim would say, "there are hidden cost associated with blogging." So true!
All this to say that my mother has not started the panels yet, which were given to her the beginning of June. Hum..... I wonder where I get my procrastination from, but I digress! lol I should just get the book from her so that I can look up terms.
I'm off to attend to some much needed school work. I did take the week off from school, and a lovely break it was.
Back to reality! Have a great day everyone!
