cross stitch #5 : autumn sampler

autumn sampler cross stitch

Well, I finished this autumn sampler from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery back when I was on maternity leave. My intention was to get it framed and then share it, but since it’s square I haven’t been able to find a cheap frame yet. (So far I can rarely bring myself to spend much on framing…I tend to repurpose thrift store finds.)

But since it’s autumn now and I worked so hard on it, I really wanted to display it! So this is my temporary fix for the season. And actually it’s hanging in our living room, but the walls there are green and don’t photograph well. So I moved it to our room for these pictures.

I had a lot of fun stitching this one. I want to note that the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery’s stuff is very cutesy (or “kawaii”) and that’s not really my style. I left the little faces off all the inanimate objects. The little people and animals are cute enough for me. :)

Which square is your favorite? I really like this little house; it reminds me of the house we lived in when my brothers were born, in Pennsylvania…

The falling leaves are pretty…

The cardinals remind me of my mom…

This little deer is adorable…

…but I think my favorite is the acorn. Acorns are symbolic to me, and have special meaning.

Thanks for letting me share! What are you working on these days?

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    I love the spooky moon and the pencils because school = fall to me!
    I’ve knit a few hats for my husband recently, and I’m trying to get myself geared up to start a new embroidery project.

    From Sarah:

    This looks great! I’m nearing the end of the Once Upon a Time sampler and also working on their Halloween town piece. I like the cutesy style in general (although I have made a few changes here and there). But their stuff definitely has a strong look, and it makes me hesitate to do any more because I don’t want my whole house to be kawaii! :)
