Autumn Equinox...finding a balance....


Another embroidered bird...I know I am obsessed with making them!!!



My new autumn colours



A mixture of new and secondhand clothes




Greys and softest ochres remind me of the Autumn hills we walk




Nellie the elephant waiting for embroidery


He is soooo cute ha ha
I am having fun with some children's illustrations they are for some pretty nursery cushions I will make. I have printed them onto soft cotton, and now I will add some embroidery and a bit of patchwork before I make them up.
I have my Autumn wardrobe started....I wanted a change from berry colours, so I opted for soft yellowy lichens and granite shaded greys, they remind me of the landscape as the leaves begin to change and fall. The light grows less these past few days, becoming soft and golden, and I feel the dark begins to make shadows ever earlier now. The rush of summer fades as the wheel turns and we begin our inner journeys in preparation for the long Winter.......there is a peace in the following of the seasons and I find comfort in that always..
With love
Lynn xx

Hello Lynn

Lovely clothes, gorgeous colours. Lace up boots: my favourite of all footwear! Your embroidered bird is delightful and I can't wait to see how you will embellish the illustrations too.
Thank you for your lovely words on the changing seasons.

Love you autumnal colour palette. Very serene. And the elephant is just charming!

Annie said...

Hi Lynn.

Love your Autumn colors. So restful. Your embroidered birds are wonderful. I've been working on old fashion arts lately and have been thinking of picking up embroidery again. Thanks for the continued push in that direction. By the way, will you be selling any of your patterns when you open up your shop?

Kay said...

Hi Lynn,

Your embroidery is exquisite..truly drawing with thread. Thanks for your nice comments on Cinderella. I would still love to do a snowman swap even though I can't quite contemplate snow at this moment! Let me know what you have in mind.

Best, Loribeth

Hi Lynn,
Thanks for your visit and sweet words :-) I've always admired people who can create wonderful things with their own hands, as I've never been able to! I really really like your linen works (it's my favourite fabric after all). And great boots by the way! :-)

Still raining bucket loads here in The Netherlands, so better stick to some indoor chores...

Have a great weekend,
Katja

Hi Lynn...that little birdie is exquisite...I look forward to seeing the nursery cushions made up...Lovely soft colours you have chosen for your Autumn colours. Hard to imagine the turn of Seasons isn't it...our days are starting to get longer...lovely warm sunny days...perfect to get out and have some beachwalks in anticipation of the Summer that is on it's way. Have fun putting your wardrobe together...and I love those boots...Dzintra♥x

Ottilias Veranda said...

That outfit is awsome! And so is Your embroidery too! I wish I had the patience to do that...but it´s easier for me to paint I think!

Hugs
Liisa

Karen from A`Musements said...

Your embroidered bird is wonderful, Lynn.... but then so is everything your artistic hands touch. I am sure the children's illustrations that you are working on will turn into adorable pillows, just in time for the holidays~~~
Love the color palette you are showing now... fall is definitely in the air!

bad penny said...

Absolutley love your work. How do you get your illustrations onto fabrik - di you screen print ?

Bre said...

..lucky me to have found your blog for the first time ..it's glorious !

The little embroidery birdy is adorable but most of all I love your gift of words. I feel as though I'm wrapped in velvet when I read your words ...they just draw me in.

I'll definitely come back to visit.

Cheers,
Bre

I love the change of seasons too. I would never want to live in a tropical country without seasons or with wet and dry seasons only. I love to gather a winter wardrobe. You have chosen some really beautiful clothes, those colours are amazing. Cannot wait to see the image of the little one embroidered and patchworked (this probably isn't a verb, but I just like to invent words), have a great week!

Chatelaine said...

I do love your entire Fall ensemble. Fall is my favorite season for fashion. I love the colors and soft fabrics of the cooler months.

I always feel renewed with the change of season as if I get a fresh start.

Your designs are fabulous. I bet those nursery cushions will be so sweet.
