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...
