I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Pumpkin

No, I haven't been entering gardening competitions and winning blue ribbons for my pumpkins... but I do have a Blue Ribbon Design pumpkin to show you!

And yes, that also means I have another finish for 2016....

Finish #8
This month's theme for the Halloween Ornie Blog is pumpkins.  I found the perfect quick stitch for this month... "Halloween Portraits" by Blue Ribbon Designs.


This little pumpkin is one of 6 or 7 designs included in the "Halloween Portraits" set.  Besides the cute pumpkin there is also a ghost, witch, black cat, crow, owl... plus a couple more that I can't remember... I will have plenty more to stitch over the coming months for my Halloween themes!  The designs were published in the Just Cross Stitch Halloween 2015 magazine.

Once I have stitched a couple more on this piece of fabric I will turn them into little pillow ornies... but the final finish may be some time off!! :o)

So that's it for today... all up to date with my posting again.  I still have a TUSAL and GG post to do this week so I will try and be on time for those posts later in the week....


Til then, happy stitching!
Hugs xx

He's cute. I stitched him and his friends and made an octagonal box last year.

It looks real cute, your pumpkin. And somehow I have the feeling that I will have to buy the Halloween 2015 issue although I didn't have the intention to do so :)
