Autumn on Marigold Lane

I finally finished Autumn on Marigold Lane by Pineberry Lane Designs .
Not often these days that I finish something, so I am very pleased!! I stitched this design on 28 count dirty linen with DMC threads. For the flowers I used a variegated DMC #51..love the orange and yellows, it suited it perfectly!
My camera doesn't take the best pictures lately..not sure why, but the first picture shows the beautiful colors of stitching on this piece.
I really loved stitching this design being as I love all things Fall and Autumn themed. My favorite time of the year! Love the changing colors of all the leaves and the crisp cool air that Autumn brings.
We will be carving our pumpkin soon and roasting pumpkin seeds. The leaves are starting to change too...what pretty colors to see out our back door.
I ventured with my dear husband into our backyard woods the other day..we had a wonderful surprise! The owners of the land behind us have a beautiful horse named "Cherry"..and she came to greet us! I have always loved horses and always dreamed of having one of my own..I think God had a hand in planting us in our new home with a horse right in our backyard. I am delighted! I gave Cherry an apple and some carrots..she seemed pretty happy. Isn't she just the most beautiful horse you have ever seen? I think so!!
I was able to kiss her and pet her..it was such a happy day for me!
such a cute mouth and nose!! :)
I wish you all a blessed day filled with happiness,
Until next time...
