Embracing Autumn

Out in the garden this morning there was no getting away from the fact that Autumn is well and truly underway. The herbaceous border, which I'm afraid I neglected this summer, has become a tangled mess of autumnal tones. I'm sure seasoned gardeners will be shaking their heads disapprovingly but if I'm honest I quite like the chaotic combination of colours. These ones in particular reminded me of something I couldn't quite put my finger on.....

...... and then I remembered. I had bought some luscious cotton fabric from Dots n Stripes at Hobbycrafts and Creative stitches in March. It was still languishing in a pile in my workroom, just waiting for the perfect project. The pattern is bold and bright but with a subtlety that reminds me of the season. 

So with Autumn as my inspiration I have teamed it up with a rich chestnut brown tweed and will be working on two different styles of bag.

I'll keep you posted on progress but in the meantime enjoy the September sunshine.
