"Autumn Reflection" is a warm and whimsical 20" x 17" woolen wall hanging paired with a punch needle insert. It is embellished with wool applique and embroidery details that add unique country charm and seasonal color. Scraps of 100% recycled wool are used to create the details that feature an adorable sheep keeping a watchful eye over a bountiful pumpkin patch with a sunflower and autumn leaves.
The punch needle design in the center of the large pumpkin is a "reflection" of the beautiful wool work that surrounds it.
This piece is sure to satisfy your needlework yearning, as it offers a fusion of wool applique, punch needle and embroidery all in one project. It tells a delightful farm story while bringing the warm colors and flavors of autumn into your home.
