Slow Pumpkin Stitching

Accomplished some crazy quilt embroidery on the wool pumpkin this week. Not as much as I would have liked as “life” got in the way. That’s okay as some progress is better than none. Right?

Practiced a few stitches:


Marked guide lines and added a few stitches:


More guide lines.  This time with a sharpened chalk pencil:


In an attempt to ease out bulk, I removed some stitches:


Today, I will be sewing along the white chalk lines on the green stem using the stem stitch…uh…no pun intended…

May you enjoy your hand sewing project with others at Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.

  1. I have never marked when I embroider which isn’t very often. A great idea as my stitches get very wonky. Your really bringing that pumpkin to life and like you said a few stitches here and there will get the job done.


    • I marked carefully and was hesitant on use of the Micron pen as it is permanent. I researched and many embroiders use them lightly on wool depending on the stitch. My markings are being covered by the stitches. Thanks for your encouragement on my few stitches.
