Greetings folks.  Worked on the smaller of the two charts and thought I might include some wool as many have been doing.  Instead of stitching the crow, I added black wool to try my hand at applique.  My first cut out isn't that great but I'll resize the chart in the copier and get a better outline. 
Here's what the piece looks like on unbleached linen with the wool.  Not sure which color thread to use, dark gold or black.  I still may stitch him but I really don't want to.  Yes, my desire to stitch is continuing to erode.  The larger design has "moon" down the right side with another larger pumpkin.  All I have to do is list the colors and symbols so it will definitely be ready by Sunday, maybe tomorrow. 
 
 
 
We stopped at Agway for Indian corn and holy crap.  Look at the size of this new hybrid!  The cob itself is 14" and they are much bigger than any I've ever seen.  Will wire them together for the front door which right now has the long neck gourds displayed. 
 Patti and I always joked that it looks like House of Gonads.  Since my neighbors don't get the primitive style and have no idea what's hanging on my door, I can see their interpretation.  Best remove them and hang the corn.  Wonder what they will think those giants represent.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
That's all folks.  Will post the 2 charts this weekend and I'm sorry about the delay. 
 
 Have a great weekend.

OMG you crack me up. I would not have thought of either of those interpretations, but now I will never get them out of my head.

Enjoy your weekend.

My first thought was to wire two gourds with a corn, ; } that would really get your neighbors to talking or yelling, depends on the neighbor. Seriously though, the corns are such beautiful colors, I need to find some for my front door. Love the stitching especially the felted crow.
Take Care and have a great weekend.

Hugs, Sandy

I love the gourds..........don't care what they look like.. The corn is beautiful. It will be beautiful on your door. I want to find some for myself.
I love your new stitching......wouldn't mind stitching the crow.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for the big guffaw, Marly.... You're a doodle.... Who would mistake your
door ornamentation for anything else but gourds and corn? Where did you say you
reside???? They don't know authentic primitive? Shame on them.....

Love your design! I like the idea of the crow the way you have it done...but I'm sure it would look great stitched as well.
My 3 daughters have teased me about the gourds I have throughout my house as well... I still put them everywhere, but have never been able to look at them the same way. ;)

Judy said...

You are such a stitch, in more ways than one. I planted gourds for the first time this Summer. Hmmmmm..........not sure what to think now. Love your crow design.

Jackie said...

You always make me laugh!! You have such a way with words! Love the design. I like the wool crow. A lot of times when I'm doing stitchery, I'll applique a piece of wool like you did with the crow.

I love those long gourds but have never been able to find any around here...in the tropics. I once put Indian corn on my door. Later that day I heard someone banging on my door so loudly I was scared. When I peeked out the window to see who was banging so furiously I found a squirrel wrestling to get the corn off the door. What a sight! Love your crow.

This is a great piece and I love the addition of wool. I drove down to the Amish market today looking for a Indian corn but didn't find any. :( blessings, marlene
