Stitching pumpkins and May TUSAL post!

Orange is a great color, and I've been stitching pumpkins and Jack o'lanterns on lots of different designs.  I thought it would be fun to post them all together!

The Lizzie*Kate Very Scary Mystery Sampler is my first time using Weeks Dye Works overdyed floss and 30 ct linen.  The design is cute but the colors just aren't bright enough for me!  I will stitch this one little by little, but everyone knows it's my least favorite WIP.  I stitched two pumpkins, then rewarded myself by stitching more pumpkins on my other WIPs instead!

I love this colorful Thanksgiving design, Thankful Critters, an Imaginating chart by Ursula Michael.  I stitched the bright orange pumpkin in front of the letter "T" but I used the wrong color green for the vine, so that will be ripped out.

I stitched two little pumpkin faces on Quaker Moon by Bent Creek.

I bought this cute Triple Jack-o-Lanterns kit by Bobbie G Designs last year.  I started stitching the striped pumpkin in the middle of the stack.

I stitched more pumpkins on Fall Welcome, an Imaginating chart by Diane Arthurs.

I have another Imaginating chart by Diane Arthurs, Blessings Hang-Up.  I stitched two pumpkins in her basket.

There is another Jack o'lantern on Halloween House also!

Another great update Debbie. You did a great job on all of them. Of course, my favorites are the Imaginating designs. HH is looking awesome. Your just trying to get ahead of me on all SAL pieces. lol I'm having a hard enough time keeping up on my monthly stitches let alone trying to do a theme stitching. You so inspire me.

Well dang Debbie, your needles are flying! Great post, I loved all of your pumpkins :) Among other things, I am very partial to autumnal themes - especially anything to do with Halloween. Keep up the good stitchy work!

Oh it's been a couple of weeks since I checked in with you, check out all the progress !! The LK piece is definitely more a muted colour palette that what you normally stitch but I just love the stripe pumpkin on the black, thats so you. My favourite piece though has to be the Halloween House and its coming on so well ! Off to check out what you all have been doing on the cut thrus now.
