My Notes

My metal basket on my buffet was in need of a few more fall/Halloween pieces so I decided to turn this into a little pin pillow. The called for fabric was Tin Roof by Weeks Dye Works. I didn't have any on hand so I just used a scrap of natural linen by Zweigart and I like the results. To me Natural linen is a perfect blend of browns and greys. I did have all of the called for threads so I used them.

I used a piece of grey fabric leftover from my October 31 drum that I previously finished. The trim around the edge is some mystery yarn that is in my scrap yarn basket. I personally like to use yarn to finish edges. It's so easy to whip stitch on and I always have something laying around that seems to work. My tip on yarn is to use a drop of glue (like Elmer's) on the ends and they will keep from fraying. 

I also added one of those adorable bulb pins with some buttons just because Helen D. does it so I wanted to as well. I took her advice and ordered a bag off of Amazon so now I have enough bulb pins to do more projects than I ever will in my lifetime!

If you don't have the Winds of Autumn booklet from Blackbird Designs you need to get it. It's just full of wonderful Halloween and Fall pieces.

Happy Stitching!
