A Few Fall Finishes

I've been a busy stitcher this week and have 4 finished pinkeeps to show you all. The first is a freebie design by Primitivebettys. I love this design and stitched it up right after printing it. I used a light chocolate 32 ct linen by Dovestitch.com and stitched the design using variegated silk thread by The Thread Gatherer called chocolate caramel. The fabric is a brushed flannel homespun in orange plaid.

This one was done using a few motifs from a sampler by Stacy Nash Primitives and I used Caron Wildflower thread for the peacock's tail and fall. I love the effect you get with extremely variegated thread. The color change can really be seen.

I also stitched up 2 more Humble Pinkeeps. This is a Blackbird Design. I did one of these in the past but was asked to custom color this one in gold and deep red. The blue one is just like the first one I did. I ended up keeping that one, so this one is going in my Etsy shop.


Well as always, thanks for checking out my blog and love hearing from you. Happy Stitching.

Beaufiful finishes! I especially like the one that was done using Caron Wildflower thread. What is the color name of the thread? It's got great color variation!
