Last Fall Finish

I managed to get a fast finish in last night and in all likelihood, it will be my last fall theme piece of the year. I wanted one more before I started in Winter/Christmas themed pieces. I have a list of projects that I want to stitch during the holidays, however, I seem to be one of those people who cannot stick to a list. Good intentions and what have you! 

Well, at any rate, here is the latest finish. I really enjoyed stitching it.

Design: Autumn 

Designer: Sandra Dering of SanMan Originals

Fabric: 28 count Picture This Plus Cashel linen in Legacy

Fibers Used:  DMC 838. SanMan Strands in Autumn Orange. Victorian Motto Sampler Shop floss in Christmas RedThe Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Buttercrunch. 

Stitcher's Notes: This was a Secret Shop design from 2007. SanMan Strands are a discontinued floss line. 

Well, I best be off. Tons to do today. I hope everyone in the US has a Happy Thanksgiving and blessing to the overseas folks as well! :)
