Autumn Comes...

It is becoming that time of year where nature's thoughts are turning to fall. The frost has not come, but the nights are cool enough that leaves are starting to turn colour and the rose hips are getting the translucency they always do when the cold comes.

Autumn is a good time of year with the temperatures during the day being "just right" and the outdoors calling for walks amongst the falling leaves. I always try to get outside as much as I can before the snow comes. Then it will be time to buckle down and work hard inside in my studio.

This year I am working on felted wool pieces all with the rose hip theme. Summer interrupted the work flow, but Autumn will bring it back. The direct connection with nature draws creativity out and I cannot stop the yearning to make things. Nor should I.

Here is a piece from the studio. Enjoy!
