Autumn Is Here

Hi, stitching friends!

Autumn is officially here. We are enjoying the perfectly warm 72 degrees of late summer here in Boise, but cooler days are not far ahead.

I'm welcoming fall with a cute finish called "Autumn is Here," a freebie from Maja at The Snowflower Diaries. You can get the free chart here and you can visit Maja's Etsy shop here.


I stitched Autumn is Here on 32-count "Fog" linen by Picture This Plus, using my own color combination: DMC 310, DMC B5200, Weeks Dye Works (WDW) Molasses, WDW Clockwork, WDW Crimson, Colour & Cotton (C&C) Primitive Vines and C&C Bumblebee.


I found the metal flowery pumpkin at Hobby Lobby. I laced the stitching onto chipboard covered with a piece of batting, then mounted that on another piece of chipboard covered in gingham fabric.

I found the perfect little spot in my kitchen to hang this. Welcome, autumn!

I hope you have many warm (not too hot, not too cold) days ahead, and lots of time to stitch. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh I love how you finished it. Too cute! Perfect. We are still too hot here in Indiana. I can't wait for the cool fall temps and being able to put on a sweatshirt and sit by our fire pit at the campground in the evening.

  10. Such a perfect FFO! We have finally cooled down here, to the point I have thrown a blanket on my bed and shut the fan off. Have a super weekend!
