Boo Pinkeep

Here's a little sawdust pinkeep I just stitched up.
The design was a freebie by Stitcherhood and 
is one of my favorites.  I think I stitch it every 
year around this time.
 I hand dyed the linen myself, so to speak.
More like un-dyed : )
I took some 32 ct black linen and bleached
it in the sink for about 30 seconds or so
and it comes out this great brownish color. 
I love it for stitching Halloween motifs.
I think the orange pumpkin really pops.
This will be one of my new offerings in

Thanks for stopping by and have
a wonderful Fall day!

I love the way you did this cute little pillow. What a great idea to bleach out the black linen!!!! I hope I can get a copy of this freebie from the Stitcherhood. Thanks for sharing.

A very cute pumpkin indeed!
Bleaching black linen...scary! How did you get it to come out looking so nice? Mine would have been all blotchy, I'm sure.
