Fall into Autumn

This is my latest finish, Fall into Autumn, a freebie chart from Rainbow Gallery (you do have to scroll down a long way to get to this design) 
Stitched on 14ct hand-dyed cream marble aida from using a variety of different thread companies including Six Strand Sweets, Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Arts, Ozark Sampler and an Anchor Varigated.
This is the first chart I have ever stitched charting all the colours myself and I am so pleased with the result. To me it just screams 'Autumn'. In a way I am sad that Autumn is pretty much over, although looking at many of the trees near my house you couldn't tell, the leaves may all be brown but they are stubbornly refusing to fall from the trees!!

I actually finished this design last week but was waiting on a button from sew and so to complete it, which didn't suit when it showed up. So now I'm just waiting for a trip to hobbycraft at the weekend to pick up a leaf button pack to sew one on just under the word fall, next to 'into' before finishing it up as a cushion using some fabric from my stash.
