Brilliant colors, nature, and puzzles--all the interests and details that define Funk & Weber Designs come together in this follow-up to Puzzle Pisces. Lifelike multi-colored leaves, acorns, berries, tiny "alder cones," a maple seed pod, and a ladybug bring the vivid colors of Fall indoors, without tracking in dirt.

Overdyed threads from The Gentle Art add to the natural look, varying subtly and randomly. I used a "blob" stitching technique to take advantage of the fibers' natural shading ability. Read our Overdyed Threads Tutorial if you'd like to do the same.

The Gentle Art provides a thread pack for this pattern to make fiber selection a snap. Ask for it at your local independent needlework shop.
