ANG Chapter Project

The Lake County ANG Chapter is doing a Yearlong Project.  I joined the chapter this year and finally started my project.  I decided to use a fall color scheme using some of the threads from the Halloween treat bag exchange and others I had in my stash.  The colors are some of the ones I saw at the Chicago Botanic Garden last weekend.

I started stitching the first border, using Norwhich stitch in the corners and a series of Herringbone stitch rows on the sides.  The green and orange are Gumnuts buds, the brown is a Walsh Silk and Wool.  I am not sure I like the green corners.  I am going to stitch the border down the side and then see how a brown corner looks on the other end.
