It’s three weeks since I showed you my Tall Year Square Etui. This is a design by Betsy Morgan that was in the Classic Inspirations magasine last year. Each side represents a different season. I’m stitching autumn at the moment. Three weeks ago I’d just started the tiny cross-stitches of the centre oak leaves…
Three weeks later and although I’ve not done as much as I would have liked, I’ve stitched a respectable amount!
I completed the oak leaves and also stitched the acorns, these are mainly satin stitch so they were fairly quick to do.
After another row of long-legged cross-stitch I’m now stitching the alphabet. I’m not sure why the alphabet starts on autumn but it does! I’m using a really autumny thread for this, the same one that the first leaf border is made from. Unfortunately I’m on the last length and I’ve no idea where it came from, so fingers crossed I have enough to complete the row! It’s cross-stitch over one thread again with a single length of floss, so I should be OK.
Hopefully in three weeks time I will have finished autumn and be stitching winter. This stitch-a-long is organised by Avis from Sewing Beside the Sea, we post every three weeks on our one choice of work, there’s a wonderful variety of hand-stitching it’s a great incentive to keep going with a project. If you would like to join us please contact Avis. In the meantime please follow the links to see what everyone else is stitching.
