Pumpkins and Acorns

I did a little more last night on Moonlit Garden - the pumpkin and acorn.

Moonlit Garden - 26 May 2009

It's such a rich coloured design and I'm sorry the photos don't do it justice. You can't see the true colour of the dirty, brown toned fabric (it looks more like natural linen in these pictures). Believe me, it's got a beautiful, warm look to it in real life. The thread colours just seem to jump out of the design too.

I'm so glad you liked my photos of Garden Angel in my last post. It's a gorgeous design and one that I enjoyed working on so much. Nicole, I'm happy to enable you with this one. I'm sure I'll see you stitch it someday on your blog. It's funny how some designs don't grab you at first but once you see them stitched up, they capture your inner desire. It brings me joy just to help people discover hidden gems.

It is looking wonderful! Isn't it true that many designs appeal to us more after seeing them stitched.
Thanks for sharing.

So pretty! Are you stitching this with one thread over 2 or 2 threads? Its just so neat and beautiful fall colors.

Jennifer, I'm doing this design with the recommended 2 over 2. I did consider doing 1 over 2 but am glad I didn't. The two threads makes the design 'leap' out from the fabric. Thanks for asking. :)
