Autumn leaves are most lovely this time of year and while it is fun to jump around and see the many colors of the leaves as they fall, I'm always reminded that the beauty does not last and you are always left empty and wanting.  But emptiness does not last but is there only long enough for us to feel the loss and miss nature's wonders and wait for the seasons to change.  We crave for more when we have nothing, and we crave for simplicity when we overflow with goodness.

Please enjoy...

yin&yang


abundance and joy

emptiness and despair

This is my first big project and I had no idea how long it would take me.  I really challenged myself and my skills for this challenge, and I thank Craftster for the opportunity and inspiration. ^_^

(And sorry, for my first post, it took me some time to figure out the formatting)

love&peace

I love that you conveyed so much emotion with such simple designs.  I know how time consuming embroidery is and I'm sure these took forever to complete.  I like the contrast between the fully colored abundance tree and the outline on the despair tree.  You did a beautiful job.

The contrast between the two is outstanding.  The little boy on the stump looks so sad, and the little girl is exuberant; it is an outstanding job.

I think it came out wonderful!  I love the multi color stitching on the leaves.  And the little guy on the log is adorable.  Reminds me of me in the winter.  I am always freezing!

This is really beautiful - I love what you've done with the design. The detailing on the leaves is really gorgeous! Did you hand-draw this on the pillowcases first, or improvise?

great idea! i may just make pillows for every holiday that rolls around.
the pillow of winter sort of reminds me of the Prisoner of Azkaban movie, after Harry 'finds out' that Sirius 'killed' his parents.
