Hand embroidered unframed piece on "What does fall mean to me?," the first thing I thought of was sweater weather and hoodie weather, normally I would have picked anything Halloween... stepping out of the box, I did something more mainstream. Love the color pallet. Check out the texture of the sweater. The first is unframed and scanned, the second is the reverse side, and the third is in a frame.  The design is my own... Mostly made with the stem stitch, but the sweater is done with a chain stitch and satin stitch as well, giving it a really cool cable knit sweater look... I'm pretty happy with the finished look of the sweater.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

Such a cute sweater! I think of sweaters when I think of fall too. And plaid flannel shirts (what I wore in high school in the mid-90s). And boots!

Your stitching is just excellent!
