Olde Harvest & Halloween Gathering

This month on Early Work Mercantile we are having a special "Olde Harvest & Halloween Gathering" to celebrate the coming of autumn. I love fall stitching and always feel extremely inspired this time of year so I decided to push myself a little harder than usual and come up with three of my own original patterns for my September update. I had a lot of fun designing these pieces and hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

They are from top to bottom:  "Halloween Sampler", "Pumpkin Patch", and "Harvest Home". Each little pillow tuck is stitched on linen and stuffed with wool roving. I love the weighty feel that the wool gives each finished piece and also love how easy it is to work with.

We are still scorching in California but hopefully things will start cooling down in the next few weeks. All of this autumn stitching I've been doing lately has me very impatiently waiting for fall to arrive. Hopefully it will be here soon!!!

Happy stitching!
