Autumn Delights: finished

OK so I wrote this post months ago and just now getting photos uploaded so I can share it.  We have a laptop now so no more yucky phone photos!  yay!  So here goes.

I'm on a roll!  With all the snow and ice we've had over the past couple of weeks, I was able to stitch more than usual so I have another finish to share with you today.  This is Autumn Delights by Barbara Ana.  I stitched this from the November 2013 issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework but you can order it here as well.

I absolutely adore this design.  It was a super fun stitch and stitched up pretty quickly once I got in the groove.  I love the warm colors and all the little critters!  How cute!

This is stitched on 14 count oatmeal aida using DMC floss. I did have to change a few of the colors because some just weren't showing up well on the fabric.  I tried to stay within the same color tones and I'm pleased with what I chose.

I really want to stitch her other seasonal tress as well, especially the Halloween Tree and O Christmas Tree.  They are all great.

Until next time...Happy Stitching!

Oh that's pretty Crystal. Your colour changes are perfect on that rustic aida.
