Autumn leaves…


I thought I would do another coptic stitched book for a change. I always end up with fingers like a pin cushion after making one of these – I use a curved needle and I don’t know if it’s just me, but I end up constantly stabbing myself as I find it very hard to control. The problem then is not getting blood on the book! How I suffer for my art…. :)

The weather has turned and now feels very autumnal. There is a strong wind blowing the remainder of the leaves off the trees which is a shame as the autumn colours have been glorious this year. I don’t normally like the autumn as it just heralds the end of summer and the winter to come (did I ever mention I’m a hot house flower?) but this year the trees have been spectacular. The road I drive each morning is lined with the most stunning trees which are every shade of red through orange to yellow and when the sun shines on them they look as if they are on fire. Unfortunately it is a very busy road so it would be difficult to stop and photograph them, so I took this on my way to play tennis the other day.


However, now it has turned a little colder and the wind has arrived it will be all over shortly. The amount of leaves on my lawn is unbelievable, I just hope the rest of them come down tonight before the chap who looks after my garden arrives (did I ever mention I dislike gardening?)
