Pumpkin Kisses Pattern!

Hi there! Is your week going as fast as mine? I spent the last two days on the computer with the Geek Squad folks getting them to fix my brand new computer. It wasn't playing nicely with my website. Naughty! Thank goodness this really smart fella named, Mike, was able to figure it all out. Yippee for super smart computer people!

So let's get hopping to my remake of my Pumpkin Kisses Pattern!

Since I've fallen completely in love with stitching and wool applique I decided to remake my stitchery pattern into this!


Of course, I had to add a patchwork border and some buttons cause they make me smile!

Now I know there are normally black cats for Halloween, but around here it's pretty much bunnies 24/7 no matter what the holiday is.

So, when all is quiet on Halloween night, bunnies sit on pumpkins and kiss in the moonlight. hee,hee,hee. I'm such a dorkwad. :)  A big giant hug of thanks to my Stitching Assistant, April Taylor, for stitching the vines and wool for me! I'm truly blessed to have such a talented stitching assistant!

Patterns are in the SHOP and Kits are too! There are only 9 kits available (SOLD OUT. More to come August 25th) right now. I'm waiting on my shipment of lovely Valdani 3 strand floss. So, the first 9 people will get these and then others will be available around the 22nd of August.


Oh, and I wanted to show you how I did the back of this one. I made the little corners instead of a full sleeve. Pumpkin Kisses is 14" x 16" finished, but I wanted to use this 12" x 14" no header table stand. By just putting corners instead of the sleeve, I could slip the quilt over the edges. Cool huh?

I think it looks pretty good in my foyer and adds a great seasonal touch.


Remember, the table stands and all hangers are marked down 15% in my SHOP. Once I sell out of them, I won't be getting anymore, So if you have been waiting to get one, now is a good time while they're on sale.



Alrighty then. Hope you like this new pattern and hope you have a very fun day! Harrington and Hannah will see you back here on Friday for their company meeting.

xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies

I have a company that I use and I pay an annual fee and I can call and they take control of my computer. They are wonderful and you can have them on speaker phone and they will let you know if you need to do something on your end. They helped me in setting up a laptop in the kitchen which is wireless and connecting it and my desk top in the sewing room to the wireless printer. Mine is not wireless. I call when I have a problem with either computer and they get me through it. They have always been more than courteous
and the language difference has not been an obstacle. I pay them yearly for the service and can call whenever. I also have them run performance and registry monthly.
They have been great for me if you are interested at all.
