Embroidery: Autumn Tree Progress

posted in: Embroidery, Stitching | 11

I have slowly been working on the autumn tree embroidery this week.

As well as stitching a leaf a day I also started to stitch the trunk of the tree.

I was inspired on October 12 to see a wonderful rainbow from the north facing window. In all the years we have lived here I don’t remember seeing a rainbow from this window early in the morning.

This was the second rainbow to be seen from the same window in a week. The trees are showing off their autumn splendor on this sunny morning.

Inspiration for stitching coloured leaves.

Who can resist another project? This is a pattern from Clever Poppy and once stitched I’m hoping to use it on an another upcycled bag.

Happy stitching.

I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.

    I love the embroidery projects you are doing. I have several crochet projects to finish and then maybe can get started on embroidery project.
    I saw a rainbow the other afternoon after a rain shower. Back in Iowa we had a lot of them. The first one to see out here. The double rainbows were always so pretty.

      Love seeing the rainbows. I haven’t done much crochet lately, seem to be into embroidery lately. Have a lovely weekend Vondean.

    Pretty stitches! Love all the colors and how the leaves are different stitches. Pretty, pretty. Have a great weekend.

    Can’t wait to see what colors you do for your other embroidery project.

      I’m slowly getting there. I was late joining the Clever Poppy embroidery too, but got the pattern on the last day, so just working away at it myself.

    I like the idea of using your embroidery to upcycle a bag. I love that autumn rainbow view. Your Leaf stitch along is looking wonderful. You are using so many different stitches and beautiful colors.

      The embroidery project is coming along nicely for the upcycled bag, the embroidery is fairly quick so I should be able to start work on the bag this week. Thanks for stopping by. Happy stitching.

    So many beautiful colours outside this time of year. Your stitching is a perfect project for the fall.
