I know Autumn has just started, but I thought it would nice to do a blog post on it, as I am super excited for the season. I've already started to wear scarves as it is getting very chilly here in the North-East. I am really looking forward to some lovely walks in woodlands and hopefully going to some craft and vintage fairs. There is quite a mix of photos here, some I took in the grounds of Wallington Hall, near where I live (taken last year).
This is one of my repeat patterns I did for my final degree project showing branches and leaves, which funnily enough was based on the season of Autumn.
A drawing I did for my Autumn Degree project. All the animals will be getting ready to hibernate now.
The next two photos are part of a cardigan I bought this year, covered in leaves and a load of my scarves. I have a tonne of scarves so couldn't show all of them. You will see some yellow mittens at the bottom of the scarf photo, my mum made me these.
A piece of embroidery I did last year.
A woven Shibori scarf I made for my final degree project. I wanted the weave to appear crinkly like leaves when they fall on the ground. I also hand-dyed it as well. I dip-dyed it so it would go from green to yellow to a soft red.
Some of my weaving yarns a mixture of chenille, wool, boucle, silk and linen.
Bring on Autumn.
