Description

While traveling South, I had my wool applique for handwork to entertain myself.  Driving 6 hours a day, usually, does get a bit boring.  I usually stick my earbuds in (my husband is a very silent driver) and enjoy a good book while I stitch.  (I listened to "House Rules" by Jodi Picoult which is an awesome book!!!)

The design came from a Wool Applique FB group I belong to.  Trish Harriman, from Maine, is a designer and gave a free PDF download to the members.  I liked the looks of it and pulled my wool for it before we packed for trip South.

A friend gave me the very fuzzy golden orange wool I used for the pumpkin.  The rest of the wool I upcycled from thrift shop wool blazers I found, washed and felted.   I used a piece of wool felt for the background, cotton for the backing and regular cotton batting.   The binding is also a cotton fabric.

I FMQ'd the wallhanging, first with pumpkins to give the illusion of a pumpkin patch and then just got silly with my FMQing and used a mix of stitches.   It was a fun piece to do and I'll enjoy it on my wall for a few more weeks until Christmas encroaches.
