63. Just Nan Autumn Typography

This is Just Nan's Autumn Typography, a newish design (2012) and the first of four (not surprisingly!).
I stitched it on 32 count Tobacco linen.
I used a DMC conversion from the charted GAST.

Close-up of the over 1 animals:

 And the moon in the corner:

And one with a flash to show the fabric colour better:

I made a couple of changes, most notably making the squirrels red and stitching them over 1 having recharted them myself.  And I changed one of the pumpkin's colours too.  But there is one larger change I made.  Can you spot what it is?

Do you see it now?  The vertical word in the middle of the photo says "Awesome" instead of "Autumn".

62. JBW Alphabet Cat September

The charm for this month is a lovely acorn pin I received from Shirlee some time ago.  The fabric is a tan 28 count evenweave and the thread is a Stef Francis variegated.  I was going for an Autumn Leaves effect.

Karen and I decided to have a Joan Elliott Card Exchange for our Birthdays.
I chose the hands from the Four Season Fairies for my piece.
