I Love Autumn!

Hello!  :)

Autumn is my favorite season! I just love the weather, the colors, etc.! With that in mind . . . Here is the new project I started a few days ago . . .


It's part of a series of four seasons. I first saw the Summer Sampler and fell in love with it. Then I saw the Autumn Sampler and just had to have it. The Winter and Spring Samplers are fabulous too! I was just going to get the charts for these designs but happened upon an Ebay auction for kits for all four of them. I won the auction and got all four for what it would have cost me for all four of the charts only. I plan on doing all four of them. I'm starting with Autumn. My plan is to finish each season before the season begins. So hopefully by the time Autumn comes I'll be ready to start the Winter Sampler. I've been working on Autumn for three days now. Here's my progress . . .


I think I'm doing pretty good and moving right along. I'm not getting bored with it either. I really do love it! The designs, the colors, everything!  :)  I'll be showing you my progress every week. Hopefully I'll make my deadline of finishing it before Autumn gets here. Wish me luck!  :)

Until next time . . .

This is a lovely piece - those that have a lot of color and design, just grab you and you hate to put them down. I just finished up the final backstitching on one of my barn series. Now to fabric frame it.

Beautiful! I don't like a lot of cross stitch patterns, but that one is great!

Autumn is my favorite too. I've lived in South Florida for 11 years and we don't get the colors and the smells of a "real" Fall here... but that doesn't stop me from adding Autumn colors to my house starting in late September. Your cross stitch reminds me of everything I love about that season. So pretty!

What a wonderful pattern! Fall is my favorite season also. You have done a bunch in 3 days!!

That is going to be beautiful when it is finished. I love the colors. Thank you for sharing this with us at TTF. I hope you have a fantastic day!

I love samplers like this, because there's enough in it to keep you interested, and you can "finish" bits and pieces of it as you go! This is a beautiful piece, and your work is lovely! Whoop whoop!!
