Margaret Murton, the Queen of Autumn

I've always had a soft spot for the faded organic style of Margaret Murton.  I've even stitched one of her Ehrman pillows in faded teal and golden browns. It's a lovely thing that I should put out upstairs where the dogs won't mistake it for a soft chew toy.   If you are not familiar with her work, you should view the newest video interview Ehrman has posted on their website which showcases her work.

Many of my favorites are no longer available as kits but a select group are on sale this autumn to celebrate Margaret and her fascination with the faded joys of autumn in the country.
