Please note: Last week’s post has been updated with the picture of the pumpkin.
This week, we’ll stitch the large brown pumpkin ner the bottom left. I stitched it in:
Notice that both these threads naturally have a bit of sparkle. In fact, the Kreinik is a very assertive thread. By using it in a damask the impact of the thread is diluted. This is often the case in damasks because the patterns are overall and often the lines are thin. Because the Kreinik is very shiny, the Flair looks almost matte. I really liked this combination of threads.
The damask pattern used here, Crazy Steps, below, has a series of uneven steps, spaced one thread apart.
Only two more weeks in this stitch-along. Next week will be the last pumpkin and the following week, stems and background.
