Leaves and Acorns

IMG_1740

It’s been slightly cooler these days, which is lovely. And although they keep predicting rain, I haven’t experienced any. But, my mind is most definitely in an autumn mode. I’m making plans to go to the State Fair. I’m thinking ahead to long sleeve shirts and pumpkin bread. So, I suppose it’s fitting that I’ve been stitching leaves on Isabella. I was perfectly content sticking to the leaves in the border until Marie commented on my last post that she had to go ahead and put some red in too. Then, you know, I had to put some red in too. So, she’s got some red and I’m loving loving loving stitching on her. (And look at the pretty floss tags Sylvia made!)

And since I haven’t shown you And They Sinned in a little while, I thought I’d share. I’ve been stitching acorns (and a big squirrel!).

I am getting close to having page 1 finished. Not much longer now! And I have to thank Siobhan for her inspiration. I noticed her angel’s wings were outlined in gold, so then, you know, I had to outline my angel’s wings in gold. Love it!!! Next up I’ll get to work on Adam and Eve on the right hand side. (I’ll go back and finish the angel’s face when I do A&E’s.) I love how this is looking, even if it’s slow going.

Hope you enjoy your week, and your stitching!!

I am grateful for learning something new.

    Both your WIPs are looking great! And I love the idea of stitching with a floss called “Poison Apple”; I imagine it must add a fairytale feel to stitching your leaves 🙂

  5. Awww, thanks for the shout out!! Your ATS looks gorgeous–great progress! Isabella–omg. I want to stitch her SO badly! I love the floss tags, too. What a great idea to mark the symbol on the tags!
