Let’s talk about some fall-themed stitching today.
After the heat of the summer, I always look forward to the cooler temperatures autumn brings. It is my favourite time of year – sunny warm days and cool nights AND the stunning colours!
Sadly here on the West Coast of Canada, we seldom experience the beautiful fall colours those of many of you on the East Coast do. While we tend to think of the warmer colours of turning leaves – yellows, oranges and browns, I wanted to share a slightly different colour scheme for Fall.
This needlepoint sample features blue, green and brown highlighting a cooler palette. One that is reminiscent of coastal Autumn days we get on the West Coast!
Here Are More Details Around This Fall-Themed Stitching Pattern
The sample is stitched on 18 count canvas and measures about 4-inches square. I used the following colour palette to create a more neutral, cooler effect:
My apologies to the designer, but I am unable to provide either a link or recognition for the above pattern as we do not recall where we located this design. If this pattern looks familiar to you, I’d love to know!
I hope this colour palette and design gives you permission to think unconventionally about traditional seasonal colours. Let your surroundings inspire you to go beyond the beautiful bold oranges and experiment with using different shades!
Wishing all my Canadian friends and customers a Happy Thanksgiving!
