A to Z Challenge: P is for Pumpkins

Today is Day 16 of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.  If you are new to the blog and haven't heard of this challenge before, the basic idea is to blog (almost) every day in April, taking one day for each letter of the alphabet. Since I have a cross stitch blog, I am blogging about cross stitch patterns in my stash and on my wish list for this month of April.  Since Sundays are exempt from the challenge, this will be my last post for the week until Monday comes around.

P is for Pumpkins

Today's post is another pure wish list post.  Which might be a good thing, since I seem to have been long-winded with my entries this past week.

So P is for Pumpkins, specifically the Pretty Pumpkins pattern (say that three times fast) by Glendon Place.  Again, for someone who doesn't like Halloween all that much, I really seem to gravitate towards Halloween patterns.  Hmmm...

This pattern initially went totally over my radar, but I saw someone in a online cross stitch group I visit stitching it up last year and I just fell in love with it.  Something about those patterns on the pumpkins make all the difference.  I really love how they custom matted the model too, although if I do ever get the chance to stitch this, I will definitely not be able to afford to do it that way!

One of the other A to Z blogs I've been reading had the excellent idea of adding links to previous posts at the end of a particular day.  So if you'd like to see my previous A to Z entries:

A is for  Alphabet
B is for Britty Kitty
C is for Carousel
D is for Debbie Mumm
E is for Eat
F is for Frogs
G is for Garden Cat
H is for Hats 
I is for Ice
J is for Joan Elliott 
K is for Kokeshi 
L is for Lesley Teare
M is for Margaret Sherry 
N is for Noah's Ark
O is for Owls
