Seasonal colours........

Well I think it is fair to say that we are definitely well in to the autumn, but perhaps not just yet winter season. Winter for me should be much colder and crisper, with white frosts and brittle sharp days. Not all this rubbishy rain!

So taking inspiration from the colours in our autumnal surroundings I've been collecting bits and bobs, sketching 'things' and creating some more accessories recently for a couple of orders.
Crossing fingers each time items are posted, I hope that the stockists like them when they get there!

I really love the gorgeous rich red tones that are apparent at this time of year in the leaves and flowers........



My parents gorgeous acer palmatum or japanese maple tree below, love how the leaves have a two tone colour and crinkle up at the edges, it is glorious in its large fat pot



I just love seed heads of any and all kinds(!)



a pelargonium or as we all know them geraniums, these have always been a favourite of mine, such vibrant flowers that look great in simple terracotta pots or old tins, a splash of colour to put a smile on your face!



And so........ some new petite purses in rich autumn tones



details of fabric fragments, buttons, print and stitch





And a peek at print samples I've been trialling at my print class, more to come soon....



And yes festiveness!!!!! in the way of skinny long stocking decorations



and shaker style santa decorations which are in the making, waiting for a few finishing touches which are off to locations up north soon



Not much writing in this post, you know how I love a pic! will be posting soon about my workshop to show what was created! hope you're surviving what has been a very gray weekend here, but 'tis ok as I have may daylight lightbulb on(!) to work by and am cheering myself along with the radio and some creativity in various bright colourways!!
