A walk on the wild side
Not really wild, quite tame really. Nature to me is wonderful from the first snowdrops appearing from under a blanket of white. Crocus and daffodils dormant for months appearing with colourful faces in the Spring. The sweet delicious smell of roses as they open to a beautiful flower in the summer and now Autumn. Colours from natures palette fill the trees from creams to deep burgundy, merged together they give a patchwork quilt effect like no other.
Autumn to me means edging towards Christmas a time of fun, lights, tinsel, glitter and gifts wrapped to perfection under the tree. I am a big kid at heart and always gives me a happy warm fuzzy feeling.
I am making for myself atm, very odd as never seem to get the time but am in an apex where I can afford to indulge myself. I love this fabric, linen, roses and vintage styling. Will be turned into a handbag tote to carry all my notebooks and camera I just have to take with me. With brown leather handles and proper studs for feet to protect the base. Also a matching wallet/purse, with compartments for all those loyalty cards. Has no one thought of a way to combine onto one card? instead of the hundreds you collect when out shopping. Must admit have had a wean out as some hardly use and some not at all, often find get into a shop and struggle to find the one I want. Hence this wallet will have loads of slots and pockets to carry all my stuff plus fit my phone in as well. Hope to be able to post a photo next week, that is if all goes well.
That's all for this week, wishing you all a Happy Autumnal Week
