October Days

Hello dear blog friends......we are enjoying some beautiful autumn days at the moment.....there are still a few flowers to pick in the garden, the trees are turning gold and russet, the mornings are bright and chilly...
..........we have had some lovely walks and outings and i've been sewing with these gorgeous fabrics.....they are from the flea market mix collection for moda, designed by the talented artist cathe holden....
.........you might guess that i am very inspired by these and they chime in with my latest love of making my vintage charm quilts......love the vintage button prints and as you can see on my drawstring bag above i added some actual vintage buttons too....(the bag is a smaller version of the drawstring bag pattern in my etsy shop link in sidebar)....
.........an outing to a local farm with my lovely daughter was a real highlight this week.....we walked in the muddy field choosing pumpkins and wheeling them back in a wheelbarrow......
.......the small ones are my favourites....and i got a white one and a green one....
......it was an autumnal kind of day ......grey and atmospheric......
.........and here are some of the pumpkins at my cottage garden gate with my mini autumn quilt, newly finished......
.........and in the potting shed too........
.........with my new bag and some pretty little mushrooms from the garden.....
.........below is a shot of molly peeking out of the window, with the autumn trees reflected rather spookily...
........loving this time of year with the last cottage garden flowers, the fruits and the colours of autumn...such a beautiful season.....

 ........thanks for dropping by to my little bit of bogland dear readers....and thank you so much for the comments you leave which i love to read.....wishing you a happy peaceful week ahead......stay safe and well lovelies.........back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I always enjoy reading about how you've been spending your days and seeing your photos. They are framed so well and tell the help tell your story. Today's pictures inspired me to comment, I loved the pumpkin pictures, and the pictures of Molly were perfect.

And what a cute little quilt.. a treasure! And dear Molly.. she wants to be out in the garden with you. Enjoy your beautiful Autumn! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
