A Lively Hope Stitching Club: Changing Leaves

A Lively Hope Stitching Club: Changing Leaves

This gorgeous autumn hand embroidery pattern called Changing Leaves is a perfect introduction to Long and Short stitch, also known as needle painting.

I’m delighted to be back again with the latest installment of the A Lively Hope Stitching Club.
This month’s pattern is called Changing Leaves. This smaller project is perfect for trying out a technique called needle painting, which is a lovely way to create realistic looking pieces.

In the pattern I’ve included one smaller version, sized to fit a 5 inch oval hoop (which is what I used) as well as a larger version that would look beautiful in an 8 inch hoop.  I think this pattern would look gorgeous on a set of autumn cloth napkins, or repeated along the edge of a table runner.

I would LOVE to see your finished piece! Share a photo and tag me on Instagram.
