We had a much needed cool, rainy day here in Salt Lake yesterday. I used it to pretend that it was autumn. I opened the windows and pulled out some wool felt I had picked up last year and not gotten around to playing with. This is the first panel in a wall hanging I’m making. I recently gave my bead collection to my daughter. Now, I’m wishing I’d held back just a couple tablespoonfuls to embellish this banner. There is more to do on this section. I’m going to stitch a leafy vine held in the crow’s beak. He needs an eyeball.
I think it’s curious how typically I’m drawn to a sleek, modern (even if it’s mid-century) look, but when autumn comes I pull toward primitive styled decor. I guess because it’s homey and gives a feeling of warmth and coziness.
We’re having another lovely rainy day, so I think I’ll keep working on my stitching, dreaming of pumpkins and crows.
