This design is from the book Celebrations by Janet Selck. I bought it a "few" years ago, thinking I would make all four seasonal wallhangings as they are just the perfect size for a particular wall in my home... Well I'm not sure that will happen, but at least I have the one done for autumn - I'm either very late for last fall, or really early for the coming one. I prefer to go with the "I'm all organized and ready early" theory...ha!
Have you ever had a project hanging around for so long , that once it's done, you're not sure you even like it anymore? That's the way I feel about this one... Maybe I'm just tired of looking at it...I'm not 100% happy with some of my fabric choices, in particular I wish I had used slightly darker backgrounds behind the pumpkins, crow and sunflower... There just seems to be too much contrast between the dark brown border and the light backgrounds... Oh well, I'm not taking it apart now! One of my mottos is "Done is good."
"The flowery Spring leads sunny Summer, the yellow Autumn presses near; then in his turn comes gloomy Winter, till smiling Spring again appear: Thus seasons dancing, life advancing, Old Time and Nature their changes tell." ~ Robert Burns
