“Autumn is upon us” embroidery hoop

I stumbled upon this autumn embroidery hoop art on a lovely blog The Lilypad Cottage . I adored it so much I set out to make my own. I used what I already had to make this. I used a 10 inch embroidery hoop, burlap, Chinese lantern silk flowers and markers. I did not use the “stems” of the floral as mine were too thick and stiff to adhere to the burlap so I drew in the stems. I am thrilled with the results!
Here is mine in its current home…
