“Heartstings Bittie Pumpkin” -- February 21, 2009

First finish of 2009!

I just finished the outline stitching on the Heartstrings "Bittie Pumpkin". Wahoo!!!



There was a narrow black border around the design which was stitched with black Kreinik braid. I decided that it was a little skimpy so I stitched an additional 3 stitches in black DMC braid in Basketweave all around the ornament to make the border a little bit more prominent and to aid in finishing.

I’ve been spending a lot of time doing basketweave on several projects and I hope to have a progress picture on another project for you soon!

Glad you stopped by my blog and I hope you enjoyed my stitched Heartstrings “
Bittie Pumpkin” ornament!

Ooo, love the pumpkin.-- although, to be true I should say I love the acorn, it's just too cute.
