Harvest Cards Project

Harvest Cards Project DESIGNED BY JENNY VAN DE WIELE Seasonal sentiments Bring an autumnal flavour to each of your stitched cards with this rustic set of celebrator­y designs Stitch the set! C ould this be the perfect collection of seasonal stitched cards? Worked in easy whole cross stitch, with minimal backstitch and a few French knots (used in the wording and for the squirrels’ eyes), these designs are a new stitcher’s dream. The speciality oatmeal aida gives them that extra wow factor, but there’s nothing to trip you up as you grow your skills in a new hobby. These sweet motifs and rich autumnal colours will appeal just as much to more experience­d stitchers, too. If you have North American friends, these cards would work perfectly to send for Thanksgivi­ng or other fall occasions. But there’s plenty of opportunit­ies to use them for Factb Stitching Time Approx. 4-6 hours each Type of Stitches Cross stitch, backstitch, French knots Ease of Stitching Beginner/advanced beginner autumn birthdays, a harvest festival or even as wedding invitation­s fitting the season, too. The rustic aida gives a vintage feel to the cards and sets off the glorious shades of red, yellow, orange and brown – we’ve totally fallen for them! Meet the designer Jenny Van De Wiele I love it when the calendar rolls round to autumn. It’s such a beautiful season with its golden colours and gentle sunlight. It’s the perfect time to send a cosy handmade card filled with warm wishes! www.gathered.how/woxs The World of Cross Stitching 68
