Well, it seems a few people liked my poem from my last post, "A Stitcher's Harvest Time".
I was contacted by someone from the American Needlepoint Guild – Southside Virginia Chapter, to include it in their next newsletter! Whoo hoo - I guess that makes me a published poet :)
I certainly am humbled that anyone likes my poems :)... never mind reads my blogs, lol.
So I may or may not have had a few more finishes since my last post... was going to save this one for next week, but the sparkling Kreinik yelled at me - Time to make the pumpkin shine!
So here's another fall themed stitching completed ...
Checkers the Pumpkin
by Kitty and Me...
Lots of Kreinik in there!
I made a few changes in the stitches
by adding Star stitches (also called the Star Eyelet stitch or Algerian Eye Stitch)
and added beads
I do love the way it turned out and never thought about Kreinik on a pumpkin.
But heck, is there anything that couldn't use a little sparkle?
I've been imagining what a real pumpkin might
look like decorated with Kreinik.
Could you imagine if Kreinik had a contest like that?
whoo hoo - I'm in!
(always in where there's Kreinik!!!)
I think that might require a
stash enhancement of Kreinik.
Any excuse eagerly looked for
I seem to be on a Kreinik high lately,
and I haven't even started my Christmas stitching yet ...
