The Air Is Wild With Leaves

This past weekend was devoted to the new start of a design that DH picked out. It is a fall related piece and one I have wanted to stitch for a very long time now. This piece also has the distinction of being purchased twice. Apparently, I really and truly wanted to stitch it, haha! :)

This piece will also be my focus piece for the month of November. I am hoping to have it finished by the 25th of this month, as I then start my last project of the year, a retired design by Jackye Derhay Renahy of A Mon Ami Pierre. These two are fairly large pieces that will take quite a bit of time. 

This one also has the unique distinction of my stitching the central leaf in colors that were completely different than what was charted! Luckily, the colors that I chose will blend nicely with the rest of leaves that I need to stitch. I am really enjoying this project so far. I do love Prairie Schoolers' designs and luckily have quite a number of them to stitch.  

On with the show! :)

Design: Autumn (Book Number 66, Autumn Samplers)

Designer: Prairie Schooler 

Fabric Used: 22 count Ariosa linen by Zweigart in Café au Lait by Fleur De Luce hand dyeds

Fibers Used:  Rainbow Gallery Splendor 12 ply silk floss in S899, S1009, S986,
 S903, S1056, S1049, S1011, S1040, S887, S849, S1020, and S1128.

Stitchers' Notes: Design taken from Book Number 66, Autumn Samplers. Substituted the called for DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 for the Rainbow Gallery Splendor 12 ply silk floss. Began Thursday, November, 3, 2016. 

As of Monday, November 7, 2016:

Time for me to bolt for the door. I hope everyone had a great weekend and I wish you all a happy week! :)
