Pumpkins and Bookmarks

I love small projects. They are great for playing with color and new fabrics, experimenting with new finishing ideas and I can take a project with me when I go places. I also love to read so I've stitched up a couple new bookmarks for my collection. I used a great pink variegated silk from Caron Collection on a hand dyed green linen from Weeks Dye Works and I loved the color combination. I am going to make that into a needlecase - I love those too. Easy to take with me or to sit on the couch with my project with needles and scissors at hand. Lastly, pumpkins are another favorite and I wanted to try Gentle Art Sampler flosses Simply Wool and I really liked it. Neat texture.
