Autumn is my favourite season. As I drove to class on Saturday morning the light through the pinoakes was breath taking and I couldn’t resist a shuffle through the leaves! Every one of those leaves was asking to be stitched. I will be teaching oak trees at Koala Conventions in July in Brisbane. I have just finished a extra little autumn embroidery for a surprise (I will tell you about that later) but thought you might like to see the results:
Autumn is a fleeting season in Australia and can be over in the blink of an eye. It is important to appreciate every second of it and not let them slip away. Only a few trees change colour and it is certainly a pale reflection of a northern hemisphere fall. I was lucky to be in Rhode Island 18 months ago in the middle of fall and if my few pinoakes say stitch me - what inspiration there is these photos!
I am missing America and all my American friends - did I mention I will be back at ‘Sewing at the Beach’ in Myrtle Beach in January next year!
