one day at a time...

Well you all know what I am like.... I love experimenting :)

So I took the stitched pumpkin I made and well erm...... added some beads.  I have never worked with beads before and thought I would add some.  I think maybe I have gone a little over board and now the pumpkin looks like its been blinged... oh is that a word?  Well you will see for yourself when you look at the photo!

Here is what it looked like before I 'blinged' it!

And well now...

I made it into a little pillow...

Made my own cord out of floss to edge it with and well.... not actually sure I like it!! ha ha  

Here is another photo showing the edging a little better.  Hmmmm I will add it to my stitching pillow basket as an autumn pillow :)

Its different and well it was fun to make!

Ok... ta ta for now!

I may pop back later as moving onto a new project now!! ha ha 

smiles to you all :)


  1. I love your little "blinged" Pumpkin pillow :) It's super cute!

  2. Ah il y a une suite a cette citrouille!
    Je dirais pour rire que c'est une citrouille qui aime le chic!
    Le cordon a bien reussi ,je n'ai jamais éssayé.

    What a great finish on this pillow! A lot of work went into that. I love it!

  4. Hi Jacqui
    Glad you are feeling better slowly.One day at a time definitely when you have RA! I hate the taste of iron too that's why I have infusions.
    I love your pumpkin - those beads have definitely "Blinged" it up!
    Happy new project (:

  5. Precious pumpkin with bling! Too cute! It will look so nice in your autumn basket!!!
    I like the cording, too--I have never tried to make any and may have to try that.....I love the way it totally matches when you make your own!
    I'm just starting to put out the Halloween/Fall decor--fun!!
    Glad you're feeling better and able to stitch some!!

  6. Very interesting look... The beads look like caviar. And the whole thing looks like a maze - a maze with caviar. :) Lovely finish!

  7. You certainly blinded that pumpkin! It looks great with all the beads. I think you will be using them a lot more in the future.

  8. Turned out great and I'm sure you'll be adding to beads to many more projects.

  9. That's a super pumpkin with lots of bling bling and I really love it. That little pillow turned out great.
