Colourful Autumn














The days come and go so quickly, filled with multiple demands and delights. I grab my camera here and there to snatch a still moment and capture life's fleeting details.

A handmade Mother's Day card (by Miss O), lustrous silks, vivid fabrics - beautiful colours to rest my eyes on, even on days too full to sit and sew. The only deciduous tree in the park is showing the beginnings of autumn foliage while a lonesome magnolia clings to the last of summer's flowers while growing new buds for next spring. 

Bromeliads in the garden amaze me with their riot of colours - the stigmas remind me of egg whisks. A special guest surprised us with a beautiful basket filled with fruit, a very welcome gift. Sunset walks are a rare treat during these busy weeks yet the sky holds wonderful colours these evenings which I pause to savour from wherever I find myself.

Such a beautiful autumn happy to see me at home. Unfortunately, this is different and I admire yours. There are beautiful flowers, delicious fruit. Beautiful thread got from my daughter and I see that they are using now. I greet the spring, but the cold Polish.

A peaceful blogpost. You have a way with words Karen and capturing beautiful moments with photos. The sunset last night was extra special. I didn't get to capture it as I was helping our eldest son deliver junk mail. I savoured the beauty of the sunset. Julia xx

Your posts are always full of so much variety and colour as you journal your days, Karen.
I was going to ask you on Instagram if one of your children had made the card. It's gorgeous!!
You are incredibly blessed to have a garden bursting with so much colour.
I love seeing your creative tasks unfold; your fabrics and threads are lovely!

You say, "on days too full to sit and sew". I have days like that exactly. I love your colors and your savorings.
