Finally!! I've finished this awesome wool pumpkin table mat! The pattern is by Primitive Gatherings. I bought the kit about 5 years ago from a quilt shop in McCall, Idaho, called Huckleberry Patches.
I think the main reason I didn't start it sooner was that I didn't feel confident in working with and stitching on wool. I never felt I could get my stitches even and looking right....and I didn't want to mess it up!
I've had a little more experience since then...and still, every time I pick up a wool piece to stitch, I still feel unsure about my stitches....
But then once I see it all finished, I don't see those little flaws anymore. Somehow it all works out and looks pretty good!!
My goal was to have this done by Halloween...but oh well, at least it's still fall and I can display it for another week or so. :)
