Here's my latest pattern available at patternsonline. It's called the Striped Pumpkin and was done back at the same time as the Striped Mountain Scene and the Striped Snowman.
I've been waiting for Halloween to get closer before releasing it. It's beginning to act a little like fall so the time is right.
I started with only an outline and filled it in like a coloring book starting with the face. I collected 7 oranges and 7 greens to fill in the pumpkin and background. The colors were alternated in my usual random style.
However, adding stripes does add complexity. I'm tempted to stitch it again with only one orange, green, brown and black. First I'll have to finish the other Halloween design I'm working on. I'm stitching as fast as I can and hope to have it done in a few more weeks.
