This week has really started autumn here: leaves and raindrops are falling, and it is significantly cooler and darker all the time. What else there's to do but try to embrace this season with nature's beautiful



...and atmosphere...

...inside and out...

... makes your day much brighter! I am working on some autumn-ish pillow cases (like one below) this rainy Friday, and they'll jump into my shop here one by one during this weekend. And to make this weekend a little more special all pillow cases (older and these new) are - 20%

Happy weekend, dear friends!

Dear Mia, Happy autumn! Your pillow is cute as lovely, warm autumn! Beautiful design and lovely colours! Great idea to mix materials! I'm making also pillow but can't get away from summer colours. I wish you sunny autumn weekend! x Teje

Hi Mia, thanks for posting and for your marvelous pictures, both of nature and your crafts! Your good taste in colors always make me smile.
When I saw you fox and birds, I thought to myself... they are friends or your fox wants to chew the birds?
See? Your goodies tell stories!
Great weekend!!

Happy weekend,

Mia said...

Hello Teje,

Thank you for happy autumn wishes! It's been sort of shocking after a great, great summer but I'm getting used to it...slowly :)

Have a wonderful weekend, and happy sewing!


Mia said...

Hello Lucia,

Thank you! And oh my, I have thought that same :) I think fox&birdies are friends...maybe...but foxes are... you know, pretty crafty after all!

Happy weekend to you too!


Mia said...

Hello Vivienne,

My thought exactly! Rain is not my favorite, but it beats snow any day after all!

Happy, chocolate-filled weekend!


Jane said...

Hi Mia, happy autumn the colours look so pretty. We have some sunshine back again and the weekend is looking better but it is getting dark so much earlier now...the seasons are on the move. What a pretty autumnal cushion you made. It's nearly time for me to get out your pumpkin coaster for my studio ;0) Enjoy the weekend, Jane x

Hello Mia----You have a good attitude towards autumn. I'm a spring and summer person but autumn is here whether I'm ready or not!!

Fun cushions....I hope you'll have many shoppers soon.

Thanks for sharing your pretty trees and colors!
Happy weekend to you,

Helen Philipps said...

Beautiful autumn makes, Mia! I love the little foxy curling round the tree, and the pillow is a beautiful design. The autumn shades in your work are so warm and beautiful. We have had a sunny, blue sky weekend here...hope you get a bit of autumn sunshine this week too!

Autumn color is very pretty. Your Autumn is a lot earlier than mine. It is fun to see your Autumn collections in your store. I think Mr. Fox loves the fall so much. He looks so happy.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Mia said...

Hello Jane,

It's been better here this afternoon (windy but dry at least), and the colors in nature are incredible. Autumn has its moments...not many but some!

Have a lovely week!


Mia said...

Hello Anne,

I know we both are love summer, and this time of the year is not a favorite, but I must say that colors in trees are so pretty. I hope your September days are more bright (and less rainy!)!

Have a lovely week!


Mia said...

Hello Helen,

Thank you for the sunshine-wishes, we really need that, it's been raining constantly for days. We had a dry moment this afternoon, so fingers crossed for tomorrow :)

Have a happy last week of September!


Mia said...

Hello Megumi,

I know, our summer is soooo short and autumn starts early and winter is long... Oh my, enough moaning, it's the constant rain that talks here ;)! I wish you the most beautiful September days, hopefully sunny and bright!

We'll talk soon again!


Beth of The Linen Cat said...

Hi Mia,

I love your makes in Autumn colours, especially that little fox peeking out from behind the tree! Oddly, we've slipped back into Summer, which feels very strange, not sure it'll last though.

Enjoy all those glorious colours! Bethx

Mia said...

Hello Beth,

Thank you! And it's all rainrainrain here, I wouldn't mind a little glimpse of sunshine (or even more) every now and then... But it's almost October (really?) so the odds are...You know. I wish you've beaten that cold for good now?

Have a lovely weekend soon!


Wendy said...

how lovely!

Mia said...

Thank you Wendy,

Lovely new week to you too soon!


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...
