Fridays Favorites is all about the Harvest Time. I love the rich autumn colors, browns from chestnut to sienna; golden umber and warm maple; fiery crimson and cinnamon; and the warm rich colors of pumpkin and carnelian.
Here is a group of pumpkins that were created from my PDF class Gathering Autumn’s Harvest. I used batik and cotton fabrics for the base of the pumpkin, and added in vintage and new buttons, leaves, and paper wrapped wire for the stems.
Here are a few more images of my pumpkins, leaves, acorns and additional fall ephemera.
And who doesn’t love owls? Here is Oliver the Owl who is also a PDF class. Mushroom garden is featured in my book Hand Embroidery Dictionary, all of the mushroom tops are made from felt, and embroidered with perle cotton. A few of the bases are made from felt and wire, the smaller ones are wooden golf tees. Cogs and Gears is an adaptation of one of the projects in my book Beaded Embroidery Stitching.
All Friday’s Favorites posts.
Well I hope that this inspires you to be creative, and that you are enjoying this time of year!
Happy Stitching! ~ Christen
