Sweet September

Oh my, I must apologize dearly my absence here in blogland. It's been almost two weeks since I last posted and a lot has happened in the meanwhile. Mostly work-wise, as I have been quite busy. But the most dramatic change has been around us. It's been raining almost constantly so no changes there. But the nature...

Leaves are turning yellow-orange-red everywhere...

...and falling already also...

...and roses are red again!

Autumn colors have inspired my work too, there's still a lot of green but oranges and reds are coming along, and also blending beautifully. Leaves and even pumpkins are jumping in too...

Can he really drag that pumpkin he chose home I wonder...

Colorful week!

Such beautiful colours and they transfer perfectly to your felted purses- the pumpkin is perfect!

Teje said...

Dear Mia, I love your autumn photos even I'm so sorry about the rainy weather. Your delicious autumn themed pouches are really beautiful! Did you think to join Julia's 'Being Creative'? This month's theme is autumn!

Oh Mia I love your new bags, the colours are gorgeous.
I have to admit I do like pumpkins, they are such fun vegetables snd your's is lovely but I really think that little bird has his work cut out for him. ;)

Mia, I love seeing your leaves AND your bags. Some lucky person will need/want these bags for autumn.
My favorite is the one with the pumpkin.
(can't wait to see my package)

Happy Tuesday to you,

Mia said...

Thank you, Kerry!

That was my first pumpkin ever - and I can feel more of them coming :)

Happy greetings from Finland!


Hi Teje,

It's nice to show you some home-sweet-home pictures with changing nature, I hope the snow-pictures will wait a bit still! I'll also check Julia's, thank you!

Colorful day!


Hello Helen,

Although I am a bit sad to see summer go, these colors are just so beautiful and inspirational!

Lovely and creative week to you too!


Hi Leah,

Thank you! I think autumn's best thing is the nature, we have so beautiful colors all over.

Happy day from autumny and colorful Finland!


Mia said...

Hello Viv,

Thank you! Autumn has this great side: the colorful nature! We do not have pumpkins here that much, but I think that little tweet has found a perfect one :)

Happy Wednesday!


Mia said...

Hello Anne,

Thank you! I am so happy the autumn colors appeared, it was just miserable to have summery nature with constant rain and golder mornings, now it's just so much brighter and beautiful!

Your package is on its way, and I wish it'll travel quick to you!

Greetings from Finland!


Pam said...

Those colours are so warm and appealling Mia!
Good to have you back too.

Mia said...

Thank you, Pam!

I really would love to write here more often as there are many things I would love to show to you but...It just seems that I keep myself too busy *note to self: slow down*

Have a wonderful day and sunshine to your garden!


Jane said...

Hello my dear Mia,
I am back from sunny Rhodes and I have missed my blogging buddies. I had such a lovely time, I hope to post some photos soon but its that endless washing to do today..!
You are certainly very autumnal in Finland, our trees our turning but today is nice and sunny enough to dry my washing outside. I LOVE these new pumpkin bags.....such wonderful work as always. "Speak" soon,

Mia said...

Dear Jane,

Welcome back! I am just a tiny bit green with envy ;) thinking of your tan and happy memories from your holidays - it's been raining here constantly! But as you can see, I am trying to make the best of the autumn, colorful birds, leaves and pumpkins!

Have a great day, and I can't wait to see your holiday photos!

I have missed your lovely blog posts :o)

Love the nature photos, and the gorgeous pumpkin and leaf bags :o)

Have a peacht weekend Mia. x

Mia said...

Thank you, Donna!

And I PROMISE to blog more often, it's just when life gets hectic, blogging seems to be the first to drop out :(

It's not raining here, yippee, so outdoor weekend here we come! Wishing you sunshine and happy days too!


Beth said...

Very cute autumnal bags. We have slipped into a heatwave here in the UK and it's super hot, I am a bit miffed as I was in full on Autumn tweed mode as well. Pesky weather ;) Bethx

Mia said...

I know Beth, even it's fun to have sunshine instead of constant rain, when autumn starts, it should stay! When the tweeds are out, you just cannot have +25!

Happy day and wonderful moments with your tweeds!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
