How About A Free Design....

I know it's not autumn yet, but it sure feels like it here in Michigan.  The temps will be going into the 40's tonight, we'll have to throw an extra quilt on!  Nothing wrong with that.

I've been wanting to do a cattail design lately, and today was the day.  This design is in honor of autumn, because while summer remains my favorite season, I do love the cooler nights and the changing leaves.  We won't talk about the Big Spiders at this time of year.


You can get the pdf of the design HERE.  It's only the design, I've only drawn it up today.  I'm tracing it out tonight and will start stitching, and will show you when it's done...it's going to be a small wallhanging, cuz I have no imagination, lol.  I'm stitching it on yellow, and will add autumn colors to the border.  Everything will be stitched in backstitch, using two strands of floss, except for Emily Bronte's name, where I'll use one strand of floss.

Please do get the pdf, the size is right and I can't guarantee it'll come out properly by saving the picture.  I'd love to see it if you make it!

Have a great weekend everyone...

I love this Allie! Cattails have a special meaning to me this year as it's the first year I've had cattails in my pond. The plants have always been there, but this is they first year they bloomed, or whatever you call it. Thank you! :0)

Thank you, Allie. You are so good to us. I have a thing for cattails for some reason. Our house in Idaho had a whole bunch of cattails on the property. I loved them.

I can't believe how chilly it felt in the shade today!

I love Fall too. What a fun design. Thank you. It actually warmed up into the 40's here last night. It's been BRRRR, add an extra quilt, weather at night. Looking forward to the gorgeous Fall colors to appear on the trees.
