Fall Into Autumn
This called out to me to be stitched when I was rummaging through my thread stash for autumny colours, so I sat and stitched it up - it worked up pretty quickly, and I just used some of my Anchor collection to do so.
The button came in a pack from my LNS - although she is mainly doing scrapbooking at the moment, until the wheel of fashion turns. It is so nice having all the basic DMC colours five minutes walk away, because isn't it always the way that the colour you run out of is the one you don't have a duplicate of? LOL
