A Parade of Pumpkins

The CherryWood Design Studios stitching continues!

Pumpkins on Parade Ribbons, from CherryWood Design Studios

This is Pumpkin Ribbons On Parade, which I shared a little bit of earlier this week (last week?). As I said before, I believe the linen is 28ct Lugana in colourway Silvery Sky from Enchanting Lair. (I’m sure you all know how much I love fabric from Enchanting Lair!) I used a mix of DMC, GAST and WDW. The buttons and ribbon are included in the kit.

It is stitched as per the pattern (except for the substitution of some DMC), and I’m very happy with it. I think I’d like to finish it as a cube, but I’m not really sure how to do that. :/

In other news, the little man starts school full time, but only half the day, as of today. His one day of class last week was with only a few other students, and allowed him the chance to meet the teacher and see his classroom before being thrown into the deep end, as it were. Today, the big step is taking the school bus. It is about a 30 minute ride, and he has only just gotten over his car sickness. Fingers crossed I don’t get a phone call this afternoon asking me to pick up a sick little man. (So far so good!)

    This looks great. The buttons make me think of M&M’s (maybe I’m just hungry) and I love that ribbon.

    Hope you took photos of the first day!

  2. It is looking lovely and good luck to your little man. Such a big step starting school!

    The easiest cube I’ve made starts with several pieces of foam core board cut to size. The pile gets taped together. The piece is then pinned in place. Backing fabric pinned to the back and then a generous ribbon hides the seem. If you need more direction, email. (Otherwise, it’s mounting several pieces of fabric and the stitching to mat board and SEWING it all together. Ugh.)
