I wanted to share a picture of these sunflowers that I planted last spring. They are all in bloom now and so gorgeous!
I think the beautiful Autumn colors in this picture make a nice palette for some embroidery projects.
My first project is an embroidered table topper. I am using this rectangle of beige colored cotton. The fabric measures 11-1/2" x 14" but I am going to hem the edges.
I transferred this Autumn motif on the four corners of the fabric. I plan on using a combination of floss colors.
I love the yellow, burgundy and orange perle cottons I have here:
I also want to make an Autumn-themed kitchen towel. I am going to transfer one of these motifs as a border - I think I will use the top one with the acorns:
My third project is an embroidered owl. Specifically, the owl on the left in this picture. I love the leaf garland!
I have transferred him to this white fabric:
And as soon as I decide on colors, he is ready for stitching!
