Autumn Light

Hi Creative Friends!
I just love this time of year. If it could be Autumn all year round - most content I would be.
Of course there wouldn't be Spring bulbs or Summer fruits or Winter fires but the Autumn light is like no other.
I just love the quiet contemplative feel it has. I know there are others that feel that it signals a dying time - but for me it is the light. The soft, fuzzy around the edges light.

These shots were taken on Sunday afternoon in our Royal Botanic Gardens. I was sitting amongst Oak trees doing a little stitching on some felt (thermos and nibbles beside me of course) and the light was perfect.

Some days the light is so hard you can't take a gentle shot at all - although Photoshop is a great boon I do acknowledge.

These are small leftover pieces of felt that I am turning into book covers.

I often feel I spend more time generating projects from leftovers than anything else. The eternal "that will be handy one day" that keeps us all from throwing out a single button. Then of course you do throw something out ( having held onto it for 10years) and promptly have to go and buy it again! Grrrrr.......

Hoping you are having a gorgeous week and finding time to enjoy the light - wherever you be




  1. Beautiful colours and textures! Pleased someone else has piles of 'leftovers'!

  2. What beautiful felt and I totally agree - Autumn is the best time for all those reasons. I used to love knitting in the Canberra botanic gardens, was a lovely excuse to sit and contemplate the beauty around me - and hopefully some interesting birds would come along!

  3. Its difficult to throw anything out, because as you say you know it will be exactly want you want the next day. Lovely felt.
    Best wishes,

    1. Thanks everyone!
      I am so glad you all seem to have leftovers and "stuff" as well. Justifying such a huge quantity of it can only be understood by fellow collectors!
