I'm Getting Ready

Next Friday is Autumn Equinox! I am so ready for
the fall weather!
I haven't done anything exciting at all this week.
(except going out to lunch with friends every day and a pedicure during my lunch time today).
But other than that,
I haven't even had anything too fun write about.
I am anticipating the new Fresh Vintage issue by Fig Tree & Co.
It should be out very soon.


Which made me remember an old Fresh Vintage issue that had a cute silhouette pumpkin in
it. So I went through my past issues and found it! And of course I pushed everything else aside
and started to work on it while I was inspired! I had some wool pieces already and gathered up some left over background pieces, so I was good to go.
 Now, if you see in the pattern on the left side, there is an
"H" on the pumpkin which stands for Halloween. I am trying to decide if I want to use the "H" or
should I use a "B", which would be the initial of my last name.
What do you think I should go with?

Neither....it's cute the way it is!

I love that pattern. Go with the "B" stands for your last name or Boo.

Nancy said...

Ummm, probably asking the wrong person. I like it lots better with no initial. If you don't like that unbroken black expanse, maybe some embroidered pumpkin "ribs" in orange.

I love it the way it is!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

'B' for me. :-) It would make it more of an autumn top than simply Halloween. Have fun!

Brandie said...

Ooo, I love it! You can put a B on it and mail it to me! Kidding, well maybe not, any letter would look lovely.

I like it and am leaning towards the "B"... Happy weekend.

I agree with Sandie, if you choose to put a letter on it, I would go with B for your name so it is a seasonal piece, or you could even do a short stitchery about Autumn under it. I just think it is too pretty a piece to use as a holiday decoration, better for the the entire Fall season. Just sayin...Hugs...

Love the pumpkin! Have a great weekend!

Sue said...

My friend made me this quilt for my b-day and she put the letter B for my last name. It really made it a personal gift. So I say go for the letter " B "

Kristi said...

Love the pumpkin and your background quilt for it is very pretty and looks nice with the black.

I am leaning toward the B also. Like Carol said it could stand for your initial or for Boo.

Sue said...

I forgot to mention that I have a picture of my quilt just like yours on my blog right now if you would like to go and check it out

Such a cute pattern. I like "B" since you are the maker. I have a autumn wool kit I'm now inspired to start working on :-). Enjoy.

Oh...I just love this pumpkin silhouette. Really puts me in the Fall mood. I don't think I've ever heard of Fresh Vintage, so now I'm going to have to google it...lol

I think embroidered pumpkin ribs would be pretty or the B would be nice too.
