WIP Wednesday: Thanksgiving Blessing designed by Heart in Hand

Thanksgiving Blessing by Heart in Hand

Thanksgiving Blessing by Heart in Hand

Yesterday, I decided to start ‘Thanksgiving Blessing’ designed by Heart in Hand. Normally, this isn’t a project I would pick to do but Embroidery Central has Projects of the Month (POM). Last year, they decided that anyone who spent over $50 on a double punch day would be put in a drawing. The winners would be able to pick out the POM’s for 2015.

My name was chosen and I decided to do the POM for October. Keep in mind that the POM’s are discounted during that specific month only. Felicea, an employee of Embroidery Central, suggested I do a thanksgiving project. We narrowed it down to two patterns but we both liked this one. ¬†Of course, being the creative people that we are, we changed a few things.

The start of my project

The start of my project

First, we choose a different fabric called Mummies Curse by Pol Stitches. The fabric looks like falling leaves and matches the required hand dyed threads. Second, there is going to be four bronze tinted charms added in place of some of the stitching – two leaves and two medallions. I’m not stitching the turkey after follow or the bright orange floral between filled and with. The medallions will be place in those locations. One of the leaves will be by the pumpkin and the other will be at the bottom where the flower and heart are.

Anyway that’s my WIP for today. Happy Stitching!
