Funky Pumpkins

 This is Funky Pumpkins MS079B by Machelle Somerville!  It is on 13 count canvas and
I picked up the following threads to work this one.  I am going to write the stitch guide as I go!

You can see more of her great designs here:

Row 4 & 8

I added row 4 & 8.  See the line of encroaching Gobelin below the top row and above the Herringbone row?  Some progress here and there.

Row 7

Row 7 is a Herringbone stitch worked with ten different fibers from floss, Kreinik to Neon Rays.

Back tracking

So I was working along on row 7 and caught my mistake!  I started row 6 over one thread further than I should.  See above.  It is supposed to line up with row 5!  I am ripping it all out and starting over!

Row 6 & Beads

I added the beads in the four way continental boxes.  Then row 6 at the bottom is Perle 8 in Double Leviathan stitches tied with #8 in 002.
