The quiet days of autumn have arrived. This peaceful forest scene is full of falling leaves and a fox relaxing near the river. Learn to use a variety of threads to create color and texture. The large tree, stitched on a separate piece of Congress cloth, is appliqued to the larger piece. Traditional and surface stitch techniques are suitable for intermediate stitchers, but also make this a fun learning experience for the more experienced stitcher. Use the canvas as a guide to stitch as directed and to personalize your work.
