Autumn Trees Modern Embroidery - part 2

 I finished stitching two works in progress!

However, today I am sharing the stitch and color palette information for just one - this modern autumn tree panel:

If you remember from part 1 of this project, I mentioned that the autumn tree pattern had accent lines on three of the trees: 

After adding the contrasting colors:

I have decided that I like the original plain stitching, solid colors version much better!

The stitch information is really simple - the whole project is done with Straight Stitch

Here are the floss numbers for the color palette:

Autumn Embroidery Work in Progress


I have a work in progress to share.  I started stitching a small panel of autumn plants.  I selected a neutral color palette but after collecting a variety of leaves, I decided to use colors from the leaves:

So I removed all the neutral floss and started stitching with the new color palette. 

Now looking at the neutral palette - I really like it -perhaps I will transfer this image again and stitch it in the neutral!

I will post again with the finished project and all the floss color numbers and stitch information.

Autumn Trees Modern Embroidery

I have a work in progress to share.  I wanted to stitch some autumn trees so I am using this tree line motif  from my Sly Fox embroidery pattern set.  

I selected some floss colors I thought would work well for autumn:

But I changed my color palette and used these:

Three of the trees have accent lines, I am not sure if I am going to add these lines in a contrasting color or just leave all of the trees a solid color?
