I think my face is stuck in the "shock" position from my recent UFO discovery. lol You can read all about it here!
Yes, I'm still plugging away!
When I take up a quilting UFO, I wonder why I put the project aside. At other times, I know exactly why.
When I picked up this wool UFO, I knew without a doubt why I pushed it aside. I have a personality conflict with the stem stitch! There, now I said it.
Yes, sir! When it comes to doing the stem stitch, I just cannot seem to get the hang of it. Not sure why, it just didn't come easily for me. Hence the personality conflict.
I knew that I couldn't keep the project folded there forever. So, personality conflict aside, I tackled it.
The pattern is called Pumpkin Table Mat by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings.
The pumpkins and stems were the only things stitched. I tackled the leaves and then began dealing with this personality conflict. By the end of the last pumpkin, I think I worked it out!
The original pattern did call for a loopy vine connecting all the pumpkins, but I chose otherwise.
Here is the pattern picture so that you can see the difference.
I like that my pumpkins are not connected to one another. Besides, I would have to do more stem stitch!!!!! Let's not push this girl to extreme!
Thanks for stopping by! Catch you all later! Cheers!
