Challenge Finish 12

Hello all!

I hoped to have a Challenge finish in June and have just about squeezed this one in!

This is Autumn from The Four Seasons. I started all four seasons during February but, with the exception of a couple of hours on Winter, have only stitched on this one since.

Designed by Maria Diaz and featured in Cross Stitch Crazy issue ???
Stitch count 56 wide by 56 high
Stitched on 16ct white Aida 2 over 1
Started - 15th February 2015
Finished - 25th June 2015
Total stitching time - 20 hours 40 minutes

I love the yellow and khaki hues and, as usual, really enjoyed stitching this piece. My original plan was to stitch and frame all Four Seasons for my mum's birthday at the end of July but as that's not going to happen I'll set Christmas as my new target. I'm sure I can manage to finish the other three by then.

12/59 Challenge pieces down, 47 to go!
