Pumpkin Hollow Wreath

Good morning friends! Is this just not the prettiest wreath ever ?!?

 This is Pumpkin Hollow Farms from Little House Needleworks with a few color changes and I left off the bottom portion of flowers. I found this wreath at the Good Will last year ($2.00)and it has just been waiting for the perfect design to show it off! I mounted the stitching on sticky board and then used a board and sticky boards cut in pieces to make a circle for the back of the wreath which I covered in buffalo check fabric ..I made a bow from black buffalo check and orange buffalo check,,

 The Classic Colorworks floss colors I used ..House and flowers in Old money ..Pumpkins -Colonial copper ..Bands on top ,crows, background of sign blackbird,.. chimney- stepping stones.. door, outline of windows ..outside border of sign..center of flower- eggshell..grass under house ..pumpkin vine leaves..grass under sign -hayride..top and bottom border..tops of flowers in pumpkin vine-  avocado..roof , tree and backstitch in windows -hickory sticks .. diamond shapes and flowers and inside of windows- ye olde gold

I have been doing cross-stitch for over 50 years. The dilemma has always been whether to frame it or really don't know what else. You have taken your beautiful work and made it the best part of your home's décor and seasonal décor. Bravo!
