to 3 very busy small children, I would look through my cross stitch magazines several times,........marking the ones that I wanted to someday cross stitch...................for someday , after my children got bigger and when I finally had the time to actually stitch .
I even found the floss that was needed for each design and placed it in a large Ziploc bag with the magazine that the pattern was in, and then stored it away in a box..................for later. Now the years have swiftly flown by, my children have grown and don't need my attention. As I was going through my books, the vibrant fall colors of the floss in one bag called out to me and my memory .....................
of a set of 4 designs, one for each season,........of an item on a clothesline with the same little bluebird perched somewhere on the line.
This is the Fall design and I just love these colors most of all! I was surprised to see how many different oranges, browns and beiges were in this one design. It is stitched on an 8x10 light blue cross stitch fabric. The design measures about 7 x 4 inches. I think this set will look adorable when framed and hung on the wall above the dryer in my laundry room. I am starting the winter design next.............can you guess what it will be? It is just as charming as the sock.
How about you?
Do you have seasonal sets of something to cross stitch or embroider?
What colors do you like the best?
I would love to hear!
