This is going to be a beautiful pillow cannot wait to see it done! I have no clue how to reverse applique so very impressed-:-)
Wow- this is absolutely gorgeous!
lolol I've done the 2am thing many times! It is looking really fabulous. Love the colours.
Thanks True , Mymble and Sewnsew . I was able to work on the embroidery part last night and am loving this little pumpkin. I had a hard time going thru all the layers of the strip piecing that are undreneath the pumpkin's edge so probably this would have been easier had I just done the traditional applique method. Then again I probably just didn't use the right needle. I'm sure there's something out there with a large eye for thick floss and a super sharp needle point? Any of you handstitchers know?
Ok my question about reverse appliqué how do you make your cut out line so perfect?
what a fun pillow, Terry! I need to learn applique one of these days. Oh, and just have to mention, I stayed with friends in San Rafael on Thursday night and they had me watch two episodes of Homeland...wow! What a great show. I don't get Showtime, so looks like I'll have to rent or buy the DVDs for the show :)
Perfect for Pumpkin time .. how do you make your Pumkin Pie? (my mind sometimes takes strange turns..)
I just love this...it is perfect!
Strandkorbtraum Funny enough but I pretty much follow the recipe on the back of a Libby's can of pumpkin puree and double the spices they call for. I also make a crust from scratch and have plenty of vanilla bean ice cream and real whip cream for the side. I tried making the puree from scratch ONCE and went back to good ole Libby's!
Thanks True . I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs debating on jumping into anpther pillow or sitting down and working on my scallop binding for one of my UFO's. Decisions!
So cute! That's an adorable pillow. Nice hand stitching! Love the chunky thread you used to outline it.
Hach well ... they don't sell canned pumpkin here - I have to make it from scratch.
Terryt..I love your pillow. So pretty. Was this a pattern or did you design yourself?
It came out beautifully :)- really really lovely!
Thanks Mymble ! Now I'm thinking what I'm going to do for Christmas pillows. They are so satifyingly addictive. Short and sweet projects that have a big bang for the buck impression.
Ok .....so I think you should sell your pattern!!
You are so funny Conniharns ! I'd give it away if I knew how to do blogs and attach drawn pattern pieces.
Your pillow is adorable.
Of course you can Pin, Carolmarie . I'd be honored. Kitties can be like that. Our hose is cat free due to hubby and kids being really allergic to them. But my dog is just as bad. He'll steal pillows off the couch to snuggle with them.
