I am savoring every day that I can look up these most beautiful, richly colored mountains. They are deepest golden shades, with glimmers of deep green, and tipped in a red velvet. Such a sight! I know that soon the leaves will drop and a new season will be upon us. But these warm days of golden light are incredible! Especially when a sliver of white moon hangs in the clear blue sky.

Today on our drive we came across this forest creature, foraging in his last hungry days before a winter's rest.
Here is the little felt project that I recently made, now sewn to jasper's overalls. Cute, eh? I think I will make more little felt patches... I think they'd look nice on a plain sweater or tee shirt too.
We had a most relaxing family day, soaking in natural mineral hot springs and just being together. We had considered a final beach trip this 4-day holiday weekend, but ultimately decided that staying close would be more restful. Tomorrow, banana pancakes for breakfast and making things with the girls. We have started on some sewn recycled wool ornaments & sachets. They are quick and fun to create.And a nice nature walk, I need jolly little pinecones for a project idea.
A few more inspirations to share...
~ A fabulous new book, Zakka Sewing which tempts me to brush up on my sewing skills so that I can make these beautiful things!
