Another Autumn Postcard


On this one, I have left the leaf rubbing untouched and added the stitching around it.  In the lower half, I have done random lazy daisy stitches in two autumn colours.  Above the leaf, I have done a few lines of running stitch to follow the contours of the leaf then added the season and year.

The next two postcards are going to be completely different, unless  I find some more leaves I like.

I did get the front of the montana tunic finished and the shoulders are joined.  I had time to start the neck but I needed to find a different needle.  As  Rumple Teaser was sat on my feet.  I decided the safer option was  to sit still.  Claws in toes are not very comfortable.  I will find the needle before I sit down this evening, and make a start on it tonight.  There are 17 inches of neck to knit!

Lovely postcard. The stitching really adds to the overall effect.
