This month’s theme was Autumn or Halloween – I went with Autumn:

The background fabric is heavily machined calico in various reds, onto which I stitched into place a square of woven fabrics, the colours of which I felt are autumnal – I then hand stitched over this square.  I wove a variegated dyed wool around the edge of the square and finished it off by couching the leaf shape in a thin velveteen ribbon.  I am happy with the result, hope the recipient is :).
