The People Chose Autumnal Colors

It's November, so it's time for the monthyl 'The People's Choice' SAL, hosted by our lovely Jo! This month's theme, very fittingly, is autumn colours, which I personally love, so let's see what we can find in the trunk...I actually didn't find a lot!

There's my Halloween sampler I stitched a few years back, and this tiny design I made with one of DMCs colour changing threads:




 I did a little better in the knitting/crochet department - my big autumn shawl (not traditional autumn colours, but reminds me of the season none the less), one of my baby jackets, and the little pumpkin hat I just finished:




I just started another autumn-themed project, though, and I want to use this space to show you, and maybe advertise a little: My good friend Magical525 is hosting an Autumn Mystery SAL this year, on the weekend of th 15th to 17th. It'll probably be a biscornu-type project again, she's giving the front and back, with a new pattern drop every four hours. As usual, she gave two 'pre-stitch' patterns, so we have a little more time to make a base and get our counting right (good thing she did, because I massively misscounted on my first try!), and that is what I've been stitching:






In case anyone wants to join me (It's super fun!), here's the link to the annoncment blog: https://magicalquilts.blogspot.com/2019/10/the-next-mystery-sal-autumn-mystery-sal.html and the facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/172379333367463/

I too love Autumn colors but have very few pieces finished in them. Love all of yours. Thank you for the link to the SAL, I'll probably collect the patterns and finish at a later date, but will be watching your progress.

I do love autumn colors so I enjoyed this post, Leonore. That baby pumpkin hat is the sweetest! And your baby jacket is darling, too--lucky babies who receive these as gifts :) Enjoy your Sunday!

Love the Frosted Pumpkin Halloween piece; it's the eyes that I find most amusing!
Good luck with your mystery SAL this coming weekend. Definitely looks boscornu-shaped to me and the colours so far are perfect for autumn. :)
