Thanksgiving Embroidery Wheat Sheaf Border Project

This wheat sheaf border is another of the motifs from my Thanksgiving embroidery pattern set.  

 This was a very easy embroidery project and did not take me long to stitch.

I used simple stitches on this project.  The wheat heads are done with Straight Stitch and Lazy Daisy Stitch.  The Straight Stitches are six strands of cotton floss, the Lazy Daisies are done with perle cotton floss. The wheat stalks are done with Stem Stitch - in three strands of cotton floss.  The center heart is done with Double Knot Stitch using three strands of cotton floss.

Here are the color numbers for the floss I used:

Now which of these should I start embroidering next?  I really like the pumpkin!

Hi Kim,

The wheat sheaf is especially pretty on the linen. The stitches are nice and textural. It's very pretty and makes me think of November. It's a great border.

Oh, I think the pumpkin would be great to do next, too! Can't wait to see it.

The colors you're using for the wheat are spot on -- it's really beautiful! I like the pumpkin design, too--especially the little acorn at the bottom! :)
