Autumn has definitely arrived. The colors of nature have changed, and the air feels crispy and clear (when it's not raining). We've had our first frosty morning, you could tell even without going outside; the morning coffee was enjoyed with scrap-scrap-car-window-scraping sounds. Even the change can be hard at the times, I quite enjoy this. After a gray and wet summer these bright color look simply wonderful. And inspirational, too! 
There are other autumn-inspired things on my desk too half finished, but somehow there always seems to be other, more urgent things that need to be done right away. But slowly still, I am getting there, and Christmas is also in my mind more and more often. But after this summer and early autumn's rush I have decided there's no need to tire (read: kill) yourself with work, there's always a way to get everything done without all that stress and anxiety. And there isn't, there's some things too much in your agenda.

Restful weekend and happy last days of September!


P.S. The sale is still on in my shop for a little while, welcome!

I so agree Mia, life is too short to stress and it is good to see all the autumn changes. It is a lovely bright if chilly autumn day here and in an hour my family will be arriving...can't wait. There is nothing like a family party is there. Have a restful weekend my friend,

Hi Mia! I enjoy so much much your autumn colours! I do hope you have lots of fresh crispy autumn days and not rain! Your new bag is amazing - really full of autumn feeling! I have now less work outside of the house but inside so much that I can't bare to think. So many things should be done before rain starts but I want to start sewing! Happy weekend my friend! x Teje

Glorious autumnal colours, some compensation for the damp!

I think there are some things too much in my agenda too!

Mia said...

Thank you so much for your beautiful, supportive and oh so fall-loving comments! They always brighten the gray and rainy days!

Lovely October, everyone!


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...
