Needlework Tuesday: Autumn Wreath Needlepoint

I've been making very slow progress on this one.  I love needlepoint, but I keep picking up other projects first.  I have no hope that this will be done this year, but maybe next year.  Every stitch gets me closer, and the reality is that I enjoy the journey more than the finished product.  I'm ashamed to say I have some lovely needlepoint pieces that are finished but haven't been framed or made into pillows.

This one will have a lot of backstitch to make the details pop.  I usually do that all at the end. For now you can see the leaves and berries, bow and birds and a couple of pumpkins.  It really is lovely Fall colors.  If nothing else, it's fun to work on it during this time of year.

Do you rotate projects seasonally?  It's one thing I do to keep big projects going without burning out.  It's always fun to open up my Fall box and see what projects are waiting for me.

Linking up today with Heather at Books and Quilts.
