During my recent travels I fell behind on my Aurifil Designer of the Month stitching. I was able to do some stitching in the evening but seeing new places and having new experiences (a gondola ride at the San Diego Zoo for example) can be quite exhausting!
The September and October blocks were calling to me almost as soon as I walked in the door.
The northern hemisphere is just entering their autumn and the leaves are beginning to change in many places. I decided to use a wonderful variegated thread that represented the warm yellows and burnt orange hues of these leaves in the September design by Amy Ellis.
The collection of fabrics I am using for this project contains some delightful shades of orange and red to really bring out my thread colours.
The October BOO! Block designed by Amanda Woodward-Jennings brought back happy memories of the many pumpkins I carved for our Halloween “Jack-o-Lanterns”.
I realized I trimmed my block in the ‘wrong direction’.
I will use that tiny mistake to be creative when I put all my blocks together. What fun!
