A Fall Finish...

right out of the new Halloween issue.  This was a sweet stitch and I highly recommend stitching it in the colors it calls for.  I did use a darker fabric....Thunderstorm....and I'm so happy I did.  I think the pumpkin would of disappeared on the other fabric they chose.  Also, I happen to like dark fabrics, especially for fall and halloween projects.
I added something to mine.  I had an old looking bell and I just attached it with a rusty safety pin.  It just gives it a little more primitive look.  On 32ct. it turned out about 3.5 x 4.5 inches and I stuffed it with crushed corn cob filler.
Next I have to show you my shaggy dog.  Vallie needs a clipping so bad and she will be getting one next week but I just had to show you her.
Doesn't she look like she just woke up and forgot to brush her hair?  LOL  My sweet girl will be at the beauty salon next week to have her hair and nails done.  I spoil her terribly but I can't help it.
Well it's off to start a new project....isn't that the best feeling in the world!!!!!
Blessings, Barbara

Vallie is adorable. She looks so soft.
