Autumn in the air


Autumn in the air, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.
Autumn is in the air today. Flagstaff sits in the forest and to reduce the fire risk, they do a lot of controlled burning in the autumn. Today, the air is hazy with lingering smoke. The leaves slowly turn, one small cluster at a time. There is something about an autumn day that just makes me feel content.
Last Seams
Over the past few days, I've been working on a number of projects. One of the projects I've been savoring has been my Sea Dreams wallhanging. I've enjoyed this project so much as well as the spin-off projects that came with it that I hate to see it come to an end. The last seam is now embellished. Only the cloud and the finishing left to do.
Thread Keeper
I've made several of these little fabric thread keepers. They are wonderful for containing all sorts of things on my desk in addition to acting as mini waste baskets when sewing.
Outer cover back
Progress has been made on my hussif as well. The back and back inside panel are now complete. The little book pocket contains a small moleskin cahier that I covered with collage. Each page is filling up with ideas for seam embellishments and makes a wonderful little reference to refer to when I have run out of ideas!
Scissor pouch
I'm especially happy with the scissor pouch!
Blue & Gold
The lastest new project is another small pincushion. At first, I was going to do the seams in sequins and beads, but on a whim, decided to continue the black pattern of the central fabric out onto the other pieces.
idea tray
When I'm working, I gather my fabrics and embellishments together. With all my ideas and materials together, it makes it easy to work. Though I rarely use all the elements gathered, it helps give me something cohesive to work with. Sometimes, the working tray looks better than the project!
