Description

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons of the year – I love that first day after summer when suddenly there’s a smell in the air that makes you say “Autumn’s here!”. This year we’ve had a particularly warm one, and as I write this text, a low sun is shining through the open garden doors, warming up the room. The trees all over the city have started to lose their leaves, and the streets are littered with beautiful goldens, reds, and browns.

This pattern is in celebration of Autumn. Around a central design of oak- and maple leaves is an acorn design. The oak tree of old has always played an important part in folklore. It was sacred a sacred tree to the druids, and acorns were worn as amulets (as they in turn were a symbol for longevity and good luck). It’s also linked with Thor, who was considered the protector of oak trees.

This pattern measures 239 by 239 crosses – embroidered over two threads on 32 count linen it would measure approximately 15” by 15” (38 by 38cm).
