Early in the mornings, when I'm hanging the washing outside, it's cool enough to make me think that autumn is gradually arriving. I love the crisp coolness of late summer. It's probably too early to be thinking of brown and red earthy colours already, but I sewed something brown anyway: a new dress/top, from drapey vintage fabric. It's raisin-brown with a print of blue and cream flowers. I used this trusty pattern, like I did more than a year ago. The size of the fabric I used resulted in a rather short garment to be worn as a dress, but it might be okay with leggings and boots in the autumn. But probably best with jeans underneath.
Also pictured: something very small that I made to send to a friend: a little felt pincushion. Hand-sewn and embroidered with wool felt.
Have you seen this music video? Hand on your heart, by Jose Gonzales. I like it very much. Even though I laugh when I think of my sister and I listening to the original version (Kylie Minogue) in our bedroom circa 1989.
Wishing you a happy, warm weekend wherever you might happen to be.
