Fall is my favourite season.  I just love the crispness in the air, and all the beauty that surrounds you when you look outside at the ever changing colours in the landscape.

I was getting the urge to stitch something autumn related, so I had a look through my patterns.  I came across this free chart from DMC called Falling Leaves that I have always loved, and thought it would be the perfect choice.

When I looked at the colours that were recommended for the pattern, I just knew I had to change them.  Even though the leaves aren't true "maple" leaves, those maple leave colours are what I envisioned when  I first saw this pattern.
So outside I went, to the maple tree in our front yard and chose this leaf as my inspiration...

Gentle Art Sampler Threads: Avocado, Burnt Orange and Gold Leaf

It has been a fun, quick stitch so far, and when it's complete I will have a little piece of autumn inside with me year round.
