With four little ones every day is a bit chaotic. And that's okay. Because somehow I'm able to craft amid the chaos.

Fall Leaves Cross Stitch and Mirror

 This cross stitch was made for a lady in a swap that I participated in. She loves leaves and she loves fall colors so this seemed like it would be perfect.
I found the pattern on the DMC website for use of variegated floss. I simply switched out the colors.

The mirror was for the same swap.It is an IKEA Malma mirror that I painted with acrylics. I took a light gray and painted the mirror and then sponged on a darker gray to give it a mottled look. Then I used stencils to put on the leaves. I had meant to have a red leaf in there, but I misplaced the paint.
