Pumpkin Spice And Wool Pennies...

 (Do you see the subtle color variation in the blanket stitch on the Weavers Cloth ??)
  
I love the charm of wool pennies !
Not perfectly "die cut" pennies,
but the ones that are cut and trimmed by hand,
just like "back in the day".
(that's how my girls describe anything
that is old - "back in the day" !!)

These wool pennies are on the smaller side.

I used them to frame my "Pumpkin Spice"
punch needle design, done on 'Maple Cream'

Valdani variegated perle cotton thread was
used to punch the pumpkin and then 
to Blanket Stitch the 'Maple Cream'
Weavers Cloth onto wool fabric.

This Charm Cushion has a wool back
to match the front and was Blanket Stitched 
in place using the same Valdani variegated 
perle cotton thread.

  9. Looove the new pin project!
    I never use a die cutter for my pennies...all free hand - that's what makes it so beautiful and as you say it looks like 'back in the day', so true.
