Another day, another finish

This one took far less time than I expected, but it is mainly small stitched areas, blackwork and a lot of "air". I can't even remember how I came across this, but I did discover the designer (Kirsten Schmidt) is the owner of a blog that I've visited before and I've even stitched a few of her freebies that she posts there. She also has a website where this pattern came from. I'm not sure what drew me to this as I'm not a huge fan of Autumnal colours, or birds. I do however like blackwork and things that are a little "out there" and different.

  • Name of the design is "Blatterflug" or "Leaves Flight"
  • Chart is from Kirsten Schmidt, available on her website
  • Fabric is 28 count opalescent fabric called "Frangipani Opal" from Sew-It-All. It is a lightly mottled peachy/tan kind of colour. 
  • Thread is the called for DMC cotton
  • Stitch count is 180 x 170
  • Started on March 7th 2014
  • Completed on April 1st 2014. I think I'll frame this is a brown wooden frame, and give it to my dad for Father's Day.

Looks very pleasant & the colours are so appropriate for autumn. I don't see those colours & miss autumn where I am located. K.
