The wayward pattern…
I was cruising the internet one day looking at various cross stitch patterns….
My husband walked in and watched me go through a few…
I came across Autumn Bliss by Bent Creek (retail site, Bent Creek has a horrible web site) and he said, “That one is cool”
I was stunned. Literally. He appreciates my work but rarely (possibly never before this?) comments on the patterns.
Of course I had to track the pattern down.
It arrived shortly before our trip to Indiana in June. I quickly kitted it up as (one of the 7,. Yes, I am obsessive.) projects that went with us.
When we were on our trip I finished the birthday present (more on that soon) I was working on and started Autumn Bliss…
I did the barn portion first. When I was done I briefly showed it to my husband…he loved how it looked and said, “Are you going to put chickens next to it?”
Well, um, no, I kind of planned to put trees from the pattern there and the pumpkins under it”
Husband, “Oh, I thought it was going to have chickens.” (insert sad 5 year old face)
LOL, well, apparently it was time to find some chickens.
I had another Bent Creek pattern hanging around called The Coop (again, retail site). Looked like it might work…
So here you have my Autumn Bliss Coop. Yeah, original name, I know.
