Mystery #5 "Autumn Reflections"

Mystery #5 - "Autumn Reflections" is again the same size and shape, but is stitched on creme congress using overdye floss, rayon, metallic cotton, and beads. The colors are off-white to pastel shades of gold.

See Mysteries 2, 3 and 4, which are the others in Loretta's "Reflection" series.

This site links to an old eBay auction of an Autumn Reflections kit.  It has a mockup of the cover page and some information about the chart and materials needed.  If you click on Buy It Now, you'll see a photograph of the threads and beads used.  I've copied that photograph and pasted it below, just in case this auction page disappears.
