Some Fall Stitching

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
Beads 03024
(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.

I absolutely love your colour substitutions on this - lovely and Autumnal - and the addition of beads for the wind gusts :)
