Designer - Cottage Garden Samplings
FAbric - 32 count Lambswool linen
Fibers - WDW - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 23 September 2014
Completed - 27 October 2014

A wonderful October stitch! Black and orange aren't my favorite colors by any stretch, but with the yellow, orange and green of the marigolds I think the piece is great and is probably going to be on my short list to be framed next year.

Here's a final celebration of our October Marigolds taken mid-month.

   My sister loves September and October. These flowers are part of the reason why.

Making Marigolds

I've been working away making marigolds. It doesn't look like much but it took me two long sessions to get the blossoms stitched.

Down in my sister's garden there are lots of pollinators who appreciate have October's Marigolds!

Adding Orange

On Sunday I picked up "October's Marigold" after a couple of week's hiatus. I stitched the black cat, the orange moon, and the eyes and mouths of all the pumpkins.  I also stitched the sentiment.  All that is left to do - the marigolds!
