Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins

Yes, I am in the "Pumpkin" mood. I browsed through my pumpkin charts collection and picked these Sweetheart tree designs. I am going to finish them as a set. I have some autumn/Pumpkin needleroll patterns from other designers that I need to look through and decide what I would like to stitch as well.

I have not put beads or charms in any of these pieces yet. Here they are:

Sweetheart tree pumpkin heart that I am going to make into pinkeep:

Here is the scissor fob, front and back:

Here is the proud little pumpkin that I want to finish it as a biscornu:

I love the Sweetheart tree designs but you need to have the patience and love of backstitching.

Oh those are gorgeous. I love Sweetheart Tree also, but you are right about the backstitching. I guess that's what adds that lacey detail that makes these designs so worthwhile to complete.

Hi Anita:

I've really enjoyed all your pumpkins. (I am currently working on the JBW pumpkin pattern - which is a challenge for me!) Love the Sweetheart Tree ones & look forward to seeing all these beauties finished!

Aren't Autumn colors smashing?

Anita, These are darling! YOu have sure finished these fast! You must really also like backstitching. It does make the project look so much nicer, and I too am a fan of Sweetheart Tree, she does so many lovely little things, and well, I guess I'm glad they're little becuase all that backstitching on a big project would be difficult. So pretty, and I hope you will share pics of the pieces when you have done the finishing process.
