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.
