They have arrived

Oh my ! I came home from a long day at work to find a parcel had been delivered. Like a child at Christmas I couldn't wait to open it and this is what it contained so beautifully colour coded tissue paper.
I am so lucky I only made one and I didn't even send any Pins how bad is that !

I got three gorgeous pincushions and pins in return

Autumn is here

The leaves have stated to fall on the magnolia tree a sure sign autumn is well on its way. It makes me think of lovely heavy fabrics in dark browns and burnt reds. It's amazing how seasons change the way we feel about colours and translate that into the colour of the clothes we wear.

Busy doing other things

Can't believe where the time has gone woke up this morning to a very wet and cold autumnal day. My holiday in the sun feels like a lifetime ago. Haven't gotten around to any sewing at the moment life seems to be getting in the way. Hope to get some done one evening this week.
