Pumpkins and Radios

Well now... finally have some pumpkin finishes for ya'! :-) First up is "Pumpkin Watch" by Threadwork Primitives. I stitched the charted dmc threads two over two on a 30ct Old Towne Linen (R&R, I think). Stuffed with wool and backed with a pumpkin colored cotton... this finished up at about 5" square.

Sitting next to it is a Country Rustic Primitives design... The name of the design is "1826 Pumpkins"... but, I left off the 1826 because I used a mystery piece of scrap linen and this is the part of the design that fit on it... lol! Also, two over two using DMC threads.

And here they are with some sunflowers and some other pumpkins sitting on top of our Zenith radio...

I never can tell how well something will photograph indoors. This time it went pretty well, but a little blurry.

And, this past weekend was the bi-annual Antique Radio Show at Renninger's in Kutztown, PA. It was beautiful weather and many great antique radios were present for show and sale... here's a video we made of some highlights of the show... as you will see, fresh air makes us giddy! lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
