Collard Greens

Got to make my trip to Stitcher's Paradise yesterday for the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk I needed for the pumpkin vines. I even sat down with the ladies that stitch on Wednesdays and the next thing I knew it was 2:30 when I left, LOL! It was a most enjoyable experience and I plan on repeating it next week. It was lovely to get help from the other ladies and to help others with what they needed.

I had a hard time choosing what color green I wanted for the pumpkin vines, however, I think I did ok! :P Since I was at the shop stitching and I stitched some more last night, I got a fair amount completed. I am really, really happy with the way that it is turning out. I may have to stitch this again! :)

At any rate, here's what I have so far:

Design: Waiting For The Harvest

Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric: 28 count evenweave of unknown origin and color. (Possibly Bay Leaf by Wichelt.)

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks in Carrot Cake, Collard Greens, Old Crow, and Vanilla Pudding

Well, today is my Monday so I best be off. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
