Stitches From the Harvest is a beautiful collection of stitchery inspired by Autumn - its colors, its textures, our memories. Using cream backgrounds in various shapes, Kathy translates her childhood memories of this time of year into easy to stitch vignettes: the beautiful but simple stitches are described and well illustrated at the end of the book - all the help we need to reproduce her designs and imprint onto fabric our own favorite symbols of Autumn.

I love how Kathy uses stitches to add depth to her designs much as she does when painting and drawing. Her palette brings inside all the warm colors from outdoors, something we will appreciate when the ground is white, the houses are surrounded by brown, black, and grey sticks, and the sky can't decide between grey or white.

Stitches from the Harvest has 15 projects to help you relax and create - a delicious and calorie-free recipe for makers regardless of our crafty inclinations.
