Autumn Inspiration

Walking around my new neighbourhood in Melbourne today I was totally inspired by the change in seasons. The colours of the leaves on the trees, the quiet hush of feet and tyres moving through the fallen, scrunchy brown leaves on the cobbled streets, and the refreshing chill in the air which means winter is on its way, and along with it, cozy nights in, comfy knitwear, a few nice glasses of red wine and plenty of sewing at the table in my warm little kitchen . I'll be grabbing the autumn colours out of the fabric box over the next few weeks, and whipping up a few orange, brown, yellow and gold autumn inspired creations.
