Check them out as they have some brilliant projects going on.

I finished my project last time around so I have a new start to show this time.

I’m concentrating on the center of my cross stitch. I’m not sure if you can tell yet, maybe squint? It’s a leaf. And so far I’ve used, neon pink, neon oranges, burnt reds and I’m onto gold! I’m really hoping I’ve gotten the colours right and they’ll look okay when all is done. It was looking quite good for a while there but I’m not so sure about that bright orange in the middle. I’m going to leave (punny) it in until I’ve at least finished this one leaf. I’m hoping it looks better when I add all of the yellow colours.

It actually isn’t as shocking on the fabric as they are in the skeins so hopefully they all mix well and look….leaf like together.

It’s exciting to see things starting to form. I can pick out the edges of the leaf and also the letters of the quote going through the middle. I might add some Green in the next update. I know, who would have guessed I would add green in a pattern full of leaves, right?wp_20170212_19_30_50_pro

I’ve also finally finished the tutorial for the pin cushion I showed you all as my finish last update. And I’ve uploaded the pattern and tutorial to my etsy which you can see here if you wanted to.

And I also thought I would show you the little demo pin cushion that I made for the tutorial because its small and cute.

  1. I immediately saw fall leaves when I opened your post, and saw a bright rendition of autumn colors. The orange didn’t draw my eye in away from the overall design. I’ve never been much of a fall colors person, more to the cooler shades, so not sure if my observation is actually helpful, but now you have it! Looking forward to seeing more next time!

  2. As one pun fan to another, those colours are perfectly leaf-like for autumn leaves, even that bright orange. I love that you’ve had the courage to go with a neon, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of this one!

    1. Thanks, I’m not sure I can entirely claim the courage. I didn’t realise just how bright they were until after I’d designed it and ordered the skeins!
