August Colors ... Autumn Colors

 
I fell victim to these WDW 30 count Autumnal pieces of linen.
From left to right: Chestnut, Cocoa, Havana, and Straw.
Straw has more yellow than photographed...
I even have potential stitches for each: La-D-Da's "Old Crow", Little House's "Liberty 1776", Sam Sarah's "Sadie Stuart - Pledge", and Sam Sarah's "Farmer's Market" Series.  Originally, I was just going to stitch a couple of the pieces of fruit, but now I've been a picture of the entire series stitched together and it is so cool... what to do?

Last evening was warm and still, and full of yellow diffused light..    

I love how it played with the Coleus...

The burgundies and umbers glowed...

The plants' colors were intense.

Even the greens and whites...

Though some remained unimpressed...

What a beautiful cat!!

Nice linen haul and I love the plans you have for them. I especially love LHN's Liberty. I missed the boat with patriotic stitching this year so I'm trying to get into autumnal stuff before Christmas. ;) Enjoy deflowering that linen!

Have a great weekend!

What a pretty kitty, I love coleus. They are easy for me to grow. Funny, this year I didn't get one. Maybe by the weekend I can pick up...
