Stitching out of the box!

Fall is here and that brings out the fall stitching mood in me! Here's a cutie that I stitched up recently:

This is by Val's Stuff called In the Pumpkin Patch. I just love the kitty! This is one piece that I changed the colors on..........I know, isn't that amazing and shocking at the same time?! I usually stitch "by the book" or chart, rather, and use the designers' choices of fabric and floss colors mostly because I figure they know best how the design should look.

Well, this one I had to change! The two outside pumpkins were to be stitched with Mimosa didn't look at all like a pumpkin color so I used Fragrant Cloves for the left one and Autumn Leaves for the right one. Then to be even more "maverick", I stitched them vertically so they look striped. I also changed the vine color! Did I step out of the box or what??

I hope you are enjoying your fall stitching too!


  1. What lovely fall stitching. I like the changes you made to the piece as well as the stitching.

  2. What a cute little stitch. See..."stepping out of the box" isn't so difficult:)

  3. I love it and all the color changes. It turned out beautiful.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Sharyn, the changes worked and I love the vertical stitches on pumpkins. I've done that before and it just looks good, doesn't it? I have that piece in my stash and tempted to stitch it up for the season. thanks for sharing.

  5. It looks great!!!! Nice job on the color changes!! Once you start changing colors it's impossible to stop! LOL! Great stitching!
