Temperatures are really starting to dip around here. Today, I don't think it went above 15 Celsius. While stitching away in my stitching room tonight I had to put on a big warm sweater and almost turned the heat on. We always try to wait until October before turning the heat on, but it's been a challenge these past couple of nights.
With the changing season, I've had the urge to stitch something Fall-like. Although, after going through my stash, I realized I don't have a whole lot of Fall themed stash. But I did find a freebie that I printed off a few years ago which could easily be converted to Fall colours. You can still get the pattern on the DMC website for free.
|DMC Freebie: Falling Leaves|
28 ct neutral linen
Colours converted to:
WDW Celadon, GAST Cranberry and Gold Leave
(Sorry for the shadowy pic. I didn't realize it had such a bad shadow until I enlarged it here.)
I think this would be really cute stitched over one. When I first picked it up that was the first thing I thought, but after careful consideration (about 2 minutes of pondering) I decided to do it over 2 instead. I also like the DMC colour variations threads that the pattern calls for, but for this occasion I felt like making it more for Fall-like.
