Autumn Views Challenge week 9 and some creative chaos...

Morning everyone! 

Well, Autumn really is slip-sliding into Winter, here is my Autumn Views photo for this week:

Most of the leaves have well and truly drifted away.  We have had cold, windy and very wet weather for most of this week so not really unexpected.  I will post my final photo next week when the challenge will come to an end - well it will be the end of November after all!  I have loved doing this challenge, thanks so so much to those of you who joined me.  Im already eyeing up views for the challenge next year!!

Well, this morning my DH has nipped over to IKEA with my brother - they are getting a display cabinet for my darling Mum.  No room in the car for extra passengers, so I have taken over the dining room table with a bit of creative chaos:

I love using felt

I fell in love with this fabric when I "spotted" it in our local craft supplies shop!

Lots of snippets of left over fabric, I will keep them though, I often find a good use for the scraps left over from projects

So I suppose I had better make a start on sewing up some of this lot!  I am just planning a quiet day of sewing and chilling out with the family - such a treat after a some very manic weeks at work.  It is often the simple things that bring the most pleasure don't you think?

Have a great weekend!



  1. Autumn has definitely turned into winter now! Happy sewing! :)

  5. I've enjoyed doing the photo challenge - I think I might do something similar during 2013 but maybe just pictures once a month.

    Love the spotty felt - never seen that for sale near me - would be ideal for when I'm making toadstools!

  6. It is those simple things in life that mean so much ... have a fabulous day, enjoy every moment!! x

  7. I've been loving the autumn, but it really is winter here now - all the laves have gone!

    Your spotty crafting looks fun and very pretty :) I'm looking forward to catching up on my crafting too, it's just so relaxing isn't it?


I love to read your comments!
