I finally finished Pumpkin House as a flat fold, and had a camera to take pictures. Yay!
I didn’t like using some of these fibers. It took me awhile to understand how they worked. So, not my best stitching. The instructions say to use Janice Love’s Hardanger books as a reference for the hardanger stitches, but used different names for the stitches. Um. Dumb. Bad instructions, actually. I’m bothered that the top left corner is a bit wonky, and I think I’m going to add more orange berries. I fussed and bit my nails over the embellishments on this piece more than you would think. I wanted *more,* but every time I added that “more,” I didn’t like it. In the end, I was tired of it. I still think it’s missing something, but I’m more glad to put this in the “done” column.
Designed by Patricia Andrle for Kreinik. Stitched with fibers included in kit on 28-ct linen. I think the color is bittersweet.
Changes: I used 2 Just Nan spider charms instead of stitching the spiders.
