Have you seen Celebrate Color, being hosted by StitchedInColor? It's a celebration of the beautiful, rich colors surrounding us in the fall. For my entry, I decided to embroider a table runner for the Needlework category.
This is my first time doing a big embroidery like this, and the design is my own. I used a mix of backstitch, stem stich, and cross stitch.
I decided to go with a very traditional fall color palette, using red, burgundy, gold, and a touch of pine green. I used linen in natural for my base fabric. For some reason, this shade of linen just screams fall to me. It has a lovely rich color and texture.
I love the cross stitch leaf. :)
