Pumpkin Spice Farm

I can't tell you how much I love this pattern. Besides the fact that it's fall-themed (my favorite), it has the most amazing -- and UNIQUE -- color combinations. I have to admit that when I first kitted up this project and saw the colors together, I questioned the choices a little bit and started playing with some substitutions before ultimately deciding to just trust it. I'm glad I did because they really pop against the fabric! 

Speaking of the fabric, I really wanted to get a color very close to what was pictured in the pattern photo. I had none in my stash so I had a fabric-dyeing Saturday to get a bunch of it together. I'm really happy with the results of it. It's kind of like a sage green/grey combination and it looks really good against the white lettering.

I went with a white distressed fancy plaque for the base and used some basic green fabric I had in my stash for the backing. I tried four different twisted cord color combinations -- including two different oranges and two different lavenders -- before settling on basic white. They just didn't seem to jive some reason. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to put it up!
