Cross Stitch Work in Progress – Forest

fall leaves from the UW Arboretum in October

I’m almost finished with this cool and colorful pattern from Satsuma Street.  I started on it this fall and it’s been fun and pretty quick to stitch up.  Because this project is easy and done on an evenweave linen, I’m focusing on making perfect stitches with uniform tension as well as making the back look as neat as possible (within reason).  Once I’m finished, this will be turned into a pillow and given to my Aunt Debbie who has made my husband and me so many lovely gifts over the years.
