Oh October

It's been a rainy and gray weekend here (again), and to get anything photographed you just need to take a deep breath and run outside. The main thing is to be quick, and both you and the things pictured stay relatively dry. I finally got my autumn-things finished, they were made during several weeks one seam here, an another button there among the other things I have in my to-do list, and here they are:
I found this wonderful orange-yellow-red-wool where colors just slide beautifully and first I made a a little bag of it. There's a little birdie wondering how he could get that wonderfully fat pumpkin home...

... and a little cozy with similar theme. A little yellow birdie and even bigger pumpkin to tackle...
...And still one more to followed, a pouch with some colorful leaves and yet an another little birdie. Colorful inside and out...
It seems that more gray and wet it gets outside, more colors and brightness I keep adding to my handmades. That's the way to handle October, I presume?
Lovely Sunday, everyone!

Hi Mia! Very happy, beautiful and warm looking set! Definitely we need lots of colours when it's rainy and grey (outside or in our minds). Orange is full of energy and happines! Perhaps that's why I use it also so much with all these economical crisis, melancholical news, everyday difficulties. Again today I picked orange when I started to make a tea cosy!
I wish you great week and hopefull SUN! x Teje
