The Fall Acorn Medallion Embroidery by Cheryl Falls
I drew the pattern out using pencil onto muslin, by re-scaling it to the size I wanted, and holding the muslin up to the computer screen to trace it. It uses a few different stitches, but I have enjoyed filling in the bottom of the acorn with the chain stitch.
Next will be filling in the top of the acorn with a laid filling stitch. Luckily I had suitable thread colors lurking in my stash! I got my kit of traced design (thanks, Cheryl), threads, needle and small scissors into a zip lock baggie for portability and keeping it all clean.
Here is the photo Cheryl has on the website.
It just signals the start of cooler air, and I am so ready for fall!
Let the season begin! (soon).
I love About.com's embroidery section! It is worth checking out! For sure!
Happy Sunday to you all.
