Autumn Song Pinkeep

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful holiday weekend and taking in the last days of summer. Fall is approaching quickly. But I am looking forward to it since it is my favorite of seasons. Pumpkins and Halloween just can't be beat in my book.
Well, I stitched this up at the end of last year, but just got around to antiquing it with stain. It's a Blackbird Design and I used the WDW floss they suggested. I stained some reproduction fabric for the back and stuffed it with my usual mix of sawdust and wood savings (Courtesy of my wonderful hubby). I added a few blackhead pins to the front for a little added fun !
I think I'll display this on my grain bin till it finds a new owner.
Till next time. Happy stitching.

Your pincushion turned out beautiful. I have this in my stash and think I may have to pull it out.

I agree with Terri...It's really beautiful. I think I also have it and need to go look.

Thanks Girls, Just so you know the original pattern is stitched with the word "Needles", but I changed mine to read "Autumn".
