#172    "Pumpkin Cottage" Sampler

 Picking pumpkins... Harvest done!  Welcome to our pretty little Autumn cottage! Imagine spending some time in this sweet little Pumpkin Cottage by the sea. This windy scene brings out all the colours we associate with autumn, Halloween or Thanksgiving. The orange pumpkins make a colourful contrast with the purple cottage, the yellow sand, white fencing and the black roofs. Can you imagine what fun it would be staying in this getaway cottge? Maybe with some hearty soup on the stove, while you sit out on the sunny verandah to wait for the family to finish raking the leaves? The linen used is a bright sky blue, to show how beautiful those lovely Fall days can be. There is an Accessory Pack of silk threads and pumpkin buttons for your convenience. You don’t have to use the linen we chose, so enjoy finding your own favorite colour linen to bring this project to life! This is a perfect design to hang in your home or cottage to remind you of fun times past, present or yet to come.. in your own little Pumpkin Cottage!

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
