Autumn Block for Beryl
Beryl's Autumn DYB was so much fun. When I saw this patch in the pile, it reminded me of the rolling farmland in Iowa. What fun to play with a stylized idea of those farm fields! I actually stitched and then removed and restitched the block with the wheat sheaves as the first idea simply didn't work with the rest of the block.
My favorite part of the block is the little embroidered squirrel!
The branches, which were full of golden leaves just yesterday, are this afternoon mostly barren branches reaching for the sky. It astounds me how quickly the leaves fall! I also notice that suddenly, the sun is taking a much lower arc in the sky. It is now the time when the sun's rays reach my apartment for just a short time each afternoon. Time to snug in for winter.
