It's All About Nature Today

It is all about nature today, starting with my latest finish...a pumpkin!

Designer - The Prairie Schooler
Fabric - unknown 32 count linen
Fibers - DMC - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 11 November 2010
Completed - 12 November 2010 

It's a little cutie too!

The weather was so great yesterday, I sat for a while on the back patio - no jacket even - and stitched away enjoying the November sunshine!

I also took a walk around the property.

Look at the diffused back-light hitting the maple.

It made the leaves glow...

We've had enough rain in October / early November, that even the smaller of our two seasonal creeks is running again.

The cut-work fronds of the brown bracken fern look quite elegant.

And with rain, the mosses have rejuvenated.

Even the rampant blackberry leaves are pleasing this time of year. 

To me, oak leaves and oak gall epitomise the season!

And now it's off to the last outdoor Saturday Farmers' Market.
Enjoy your weekend!
