This autumn-inspired cross stitch pattern is stitched with scrumptious fall hues. A pumpkin, vine, hearts, flowers, and birds surround text that says, "May our lives be full of thanks and giving." Colorfast, overdyed flosses from Weeks Dye Works complement the solid DMC threads to add texture and visual interest.
As stitched, this design uses shades of orange, green, brown, gold and white.
PATTERN DETAILS: The model was stitched on 28ct. Lambswool Linen (Wichelt #76135) using 2 ply thread. The design uses whole stitches only. The stitch count is 157w x 73h and the finished design measures approximately 11"w x 5"h when stitched on that fabric.
The pattern includes a cover with a supply list and photo as well as 2 pattern pages. One pattern page is in color...
... and one pattern page uses symbols only (in black and white)...
... so you can stitch from the style that works best for you.
