I love Decorating for Fall. Here in New York Fall is beautiful. This Cross Stitch project was a great addition to my home this year.
I don’t carry a lot of cross stitch items in my shop but when Beverly McCullough of Flamingo Toes designed a couple of cross stitch patterns I carried a few. I just love this sweet Autumn Vintage truck Pattern! Here is the link to her shop to check out her quilt and cross stitch patterns. https://flamingotoesshop.com/

When I was done, I cleaned it quick in warm soapy water by hand, rinsed and rolled in a towel to squeeze excess then I pressed it till mostly dry.
I used Press on Stick Boards, You can get them a local hobby shops or Amazon. I used the paper from the frame and my rotary cutter/ ruler to trim my board to frame size. I just took my time center my piece. When I was happy then I made sure the black threads were well behind the stitches. I used my fine tip scissors with the tips closed. Then I pressed down hard, trimmed away extra cloth.
My Frame was from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MWAFMBS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1
It was the perfect color to match my new old vintage door! This door was found at my favorite kind of recycled type shop Rummage Heaven. https://www.facebook.com/rummageheaven/
Originally she did not want to sell it but it was so perfect for my house that she agreed for the right price !
The contractor just loved this project!
okay back to my cross stitch project. I had some autumn plaid fabric to use as a little border, it was too much empty space. I cut the strips 1.5” folded them in half wrong sides together and pressed. I used a little Elmer’s glue at the edge to keep the strips in place.
That’s it! This Autumn Cross Stitch pattern makes a great addition to my fall decor and was quick to stitch! The picket fence is a find from Rummage Heaven as well, it’s a great place for a picture or some other decor. I hope you enjoyed the post and it insores you to create something beautiful!
