Never the less Autumn is here, the leaves are changing colour and are a stunning crimson and
gorgeous dark greens and oranges. They line our back border in the garden. It makes my heart sing to be honest because the palette of colours is outstanding, more so this year than the last few.
It is now October and my excitement builds as it will not be too long now. So much to look forward to over the next few months and even January things are not going to be dull here. It is true there are no Vintage Fairs for a few months and everyone is taking a break but I have my stock cupboards full and I will have great fun designing and painting things. I choose to have my first cup of coffee in my stitchery room daily and adore the view to the garden where there is so much of nature just there going around its daily life and it makes me feel happy to have that time to ponder.
I went in the garden earlier and picked some of our daisies from our border the pink and white ones and they are so pretty. I have now wrapped them in kitchen roll carefully in a row. Then I press down on them to make them flat and in the right position to press. They are now in a vintage book and back in the bookshelf, which is tight to stay there until my return. I think something with these in will be lovely and I already have some ideas written down in the journal.
Can you see the most lovely colours of their dear little petals. I wanted to preserve them. Soon they will die back and have a Winter snooze until next year so I wanted to be sure to get some in from the garden to press before that happens.
I would like to add them to a mixed media sampler that I have the perfect very old frame for and I think they will fit in perfectly with my idea that I have.
For today though I am going to be doing some cutting out of leaves and some fabric is crying out to be cut in to teeny hearts for my jar of hearts .. which I have had a wonderful china label made for it as well that simple reads 'jar of hearts' ... perfect.
I have some sorting to do in one of my small drawers that has got a bit jumbled and I have things to keep me happy and content for today. I also have to write a piece for publication so there we have my day mapped out for me. It should keep me out of mischief ... with any luck and a fair wind!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and as always Happy Stitching! XX
