A little bit of Fall!

Here's a picture of the fall stitchery that I completed yesterday. Now all I have to do is find a frame for it.

I'm thinking about using brown and orange to paint it and then sand it down. I want the dark brown to show through but would like to see a hint of orange. Not sure if it will look good but I've got to at least try it. If it looks to bad I'll just repaint it.

The pattern for this is by Dianne Cook and can be found HERE. She has lots of free patterns for you to use.

Another sign of Fall approaching is the start of school & today was the day here in our county.

I homeschool my youngest two children but my oldest is in the 8th grade and does attend public schools. Needless to say, he wasn't very happy to be up early and heading back to school.

That's all for today. I've got to get busy on some schooling for the other 2 kids. Have a great day!

Your stitchery is lovely!!! I have been wanted to try my hand at that, it looks like it would be a relaxing craft:)When you print out the free patterns, how do you transfer the image to your fabric? I'm gonna have to try this stitching thing:)
