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!
