Rosie's Pumpkins - A Fall Freebie


Hey, ya'll . The temperature around here is still in the high 90's and though I do not want to wish summer away, ( I love summer time.) I am ready for some fall stitching.

 This little stitch is called "Rosie's Pumpkins" which was inspired by a dear IG friend who has a number of chickens and one is named "Rosie". Isn't that the cutest?

Rosie was very busy during the Spring time planting pumpkin seeds and now it is harvest time. She has her wagon filled with  pumpkins for baking pies or for  carving.

I stitched mine on 14 count aida that I Rit dyed with Blue Denim. I then made it into a little pillow using fabric from an old shirt. The little banner is just bits of wool clipped from an old wool jacket tacked to blue Baker's twine bought at the Dollar Tree. 

This is a small stitch at only 50 x 50 stitches in measurement. On 14 count aida or 28 count evenweave, it would measure 3 5/8" x 3 5/8"
I used all DMC floss.   I think this stitch would look  great on tea dyed fabric and would be fun to change the floss colors too.  You can stitch Rosie too. Below are pdfs for the charts. Because I am not too tech savvy they are in 3 different pdfs. I had a bit of printer/scanner trouble with these so I hope they come out ok.

I would love to see your stitch  if you decide to stitch Rosie. Please tag me on Instagram and use hashtag  # pinkernpunkinquilting . 


Well, I am off to do a little more stitching. I hope you all are getting in some stitching time too. As always,
Happy Stitching, 
Melisa
