Musical cross-stitch

Share Button

I’ve been doing quite a bit of cross-stitching this summer since I am unable to quilt yet.

Here is an item to begin my musical series. The pattern is a found pattern, but it inspires me to do my own. I will begin mapping the opening of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony for this month’s project (while I admire the autumnal leaves and corn cross-stitches hanging on my walls from last month).

Until later, please enjoy this item…

Autumal corn Cross-stitch

With the autumnal theme continuing, I was inspired by the bottom of the Autumn Leaves cross-stitch posted last week to make a piece focused on autumnal corn…

What do you think?

Tomorrow begins my favorite month: October…full of color, wood smoke, and quieter, more reflective days, until Halloween of course.

And the color of the season in all of its reds, yellows, oranges, and browns are the focal colors of my life.

Autumnal theme continues…in cross stitching

I prepared for Autumn by cross-stitching from a pattern I ran across.

The pattern had only the leaves, but I felt it needed a little something more; so I enhanced it along the bottom from left-to-right, each a row of each color used in the leaves.

The result of the first 6 rows made me think of corn, and what ensued will be posted in a few days…
