Canada Goose Collage

The Canada goose is a wild goose with a black head and neck, with a characteristic white "chinstrap," and a brownish-gray body. It is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, and is occasionally found in northern Europe. Like most geese, the Canada goose is naturally migratory with the wintering range being most of the United States. The calls overhead from large groups of Canada geese flying in V-shaped formation signals the transitions into spring and autumn.

The Canada Goose Collage, and design separations below, are beautiful in their realism and composition. Stitch a medley of Canada geese in flight, on the water, and on the shore in a handsome collage just right for wall hangings, table linens, towels and pillows. The Mallard Collage designs are also a beautiful natural addition to autumn projects!

Autumn Animal Scenes

Winter preparation means animals are very busy in autumn, storing food, adding weight, and making nests and dens for the cold and snowy days ahead.

As winter draws closer, bears prepare for a long season of hibernation. Black bears are considered highly efficient hibernators, putting on up to 30 pounds of body fat to prepare for 4-5 months without eating. During hibernation, their heart rate drops from 40-50 beats per minute to 8 beats per minute.

In this bear in autumn scene, delicate leaves in the foreground contrast with the blurred trees in the background to give an amazing sense of distance and perspective. The photo-realistic black bear is front and center, impressive in his strength and determination.
 
Available in four sizes:
9.32"X8.60" and 7.80"X7.19" and 6.37"X5.85" and 5.31"X4.87"


The white-tailed deer's coat is a reddish brown in the spring and summer and turns to a grey-brown throughout the fall and winter. White-tailed deer eat large varieties of food. Their special four-chambered stomach allows them to eat some things that humans cannot, such as poison ivy. Stitch this stately buck onto carryalls and firewood totes for a very striking look.
 
Available in four sizes:
8.58"X10.02" and 6.66"X7.78" and 5.84"X6.81" and 4.86"X5.64"


The moose is the largest living species of the deer family. Unlike most deer, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds. This impressive moose pauses by the water's edge, in a tranquil autumn composition just right for wall hangings and pillow shams.
 
Available in three sizes:
11.57"X8.60" and 7.91"X5.88" and 6.53"X4.86"
