Hello Everyone! Today I want to share another finish for the 2017 Finish-A-Long. You can find my list here.
This is the October stitchery from Jenny of Elefantz’s “a year in the garden”. For fall, I changed the background mini quilt and am using Fig Tree fabrics for the border around the embroidery.
I used Aurifloss by Aurifil for most of the stitches, but the flowers are stitched with a Sue Spargo 8 weight perle cotton by Eleganza Thread. I really like the look of the variegated thread for the flowers. I just did some simple echo quilting around the circle. It looks like I still need a little practice keeping the echo spacing consistent.
I have November and December to finish. I better get on it since I haven’t started either of them. Thanks for stopping by.
