Happy Dance! - "Pumpkin Hollow" Fin!

Hi everyone, how have you been doing?
It's been almost one month since I posted the last time.

As I told you that I can't buy new cross stitch stuffs anymore (lol), though my friend (no blog) presented me some new charts as I wrote about it!
I was so happy to received them!! Thank you, "N"!! :)

When I saw this lovely design, I couldn't resist to start to stitch!
And rarely happen, it was quite fast to finish for me!

Isn't this design so lovely?!
When I saw the chart photo, I thought more darker colours that chart calls for, but when I gathered all threads they were quite colourful, and so if it wasn't lovely, I was going to undo with different colour.

But when I finished and saw the whole design, I thought it's so lovely and perfect!!
It was so fun to stitch a long this design, so it doesn't matter if someone asked me to stitch this design again, I would do that! :)

Here are some french knots parts, it's been so long since I have done french knots last time, so it was quite difficult for me this time...
Oh, I shouldn't forget to tell that I changed this pumpkin's flower colour and also the pumpkin that there is left of the sign board ("Pumpkin Hollow") since the colour didn't show up well on this linen colour.

Thank you so much for your visit even though I haven't been updating regularly.
Now I'm in stitching mood, so hope I can share some finished pieces or WIPs soon!

Take care and have a lovely day!

Design : "Pumpkin Hollow" by Little House Needleworks
Threads : DMC
Fabric : 28ct Zweigart Cashal Linen (Light Sand)
