A bountiful harvest

My little pumpkin pincushion got a workout this weekend as I tried to finish a few autumn and Thanksgiving stitcheries.

Harvest is a Stacy Nash design. It is supposed to be finished as a pinkeep drum, but I'm not very good at drums. So it became a pillow instead. I added a few motifs and a sweet little vintage turkey charm that I've been trying to find a home for.

I love Betty Dekat's primitivebetty turkey design so much that I had to stitch it a few more times :)

This is my first original cross stitch design that appears in the TDIPT artists new booklet.
You can see the booklet here.
I have one more Thanksgiving design that I want to stitch and then I'll be moving on to Christmas :)
Wishing you a lovely autumn week!
Blessings, Patti

Patti, Great job on all. I LOVE how you finished the Harvest pattern. Wonderful! I have been itching to stitch that pattern too. And I just love your second set of Turkeys. Beautiful stitches.
