Hello friends! It's finally warming up to feel more like summer, and I'm loving every second.
The past two weeks I've taken a break from Christmas stitching (my favorite kind of stitching, no matter the time of year), and worked on CE Cricket "Be Ye Thankful". I was feeling the need to work with fall colors, and this one was perfect.
CE Cricket has some of my most favorite fall and Halloween designs. I have so many of hers in my "I swear I'm stitching you next" pile.
I love this font! Something about it is so simple and perfect.
I love the little elements she scatters throughout, incorporating them into the words. The pumpkins are just like those in Sleepy Hollow. Love love love.
I stitched this using the called-for Sampler Threads (they really do make a difference - especially Black Crow instead of just plain ol' DMC 310...it has a blue twinge to it....which is kinda cool) and the DMC. I stitched this on 36 count WDW Confederate Grey, which, if you know me by now, you know I cannot stand the weave of WDW fabric....it's too flimsy....but I love Confederate Grey, so I suck it up. I also find that this fabric goes so well with autumn colors, and really makes them pop. As always, I highly recommend doing a thread pull before you start a project, and see what fabric makes your colors stand out! Make it your own :-)
That's it for today, my lovely people. I hope your weekend is filled with love, laughter, and lots good coffee.
