Leaving (noun) an Autumn activity involving leaves.*

Just some lovely photos to share, of my sweet boy, and his best mate Soul enjoying Autumn...

How cool is this chainsaw? Bought for Soul at the Steiner Autumn Fair*

Don't worry, that hammer actually lands about 2 inches behind that wee finger!*

Hello again! My, it feels like so long... Oh well, life happens, doesn't it! ;-).
So the fabulous Craft Wars has been and gone, and I am disappointed to say I didn't take any proper photos!! This is not like me at all- but I shall put it down to excitement!

All packed up- after the show*
 Fortunately my lovely Flower did take some photo's, so check hers out over here. We had an AWESOME time, and I can't wait for the next one in November. 
I have sorted out a wee Felt shop with some of my stock, which I will add to as soon as I sort out my shonky photos. Also, I need to find a clever way to test the recycled fabrics I pick up from our local Arts Recycling Centre when I'm a bit unsure of what they are made from... Any ideas? (Yes, I shall get my butt around to googling it, but any 'tried and true' tips would be awesome!). I prefer to use wool or cotton, or other natural fibres, but if I spot a gorgeous (reclaimed) fabric that I'm unsure of the 'contents' of, I grab it.
And, of course, Autumn is falling all around here- and it's beautiful :-).

The view from my Stitch Room. Not the sunny side of the house unfortunately*
Leafy puddles, ready for faerys to collect*
Our apple crop was bountiful last year- though is looking a lil' sad this time around*
Gearing up! All three porches are stacked*
Eternally wet washing*
Autumn Silverbeet*
Our first Fennel bulb, which I'm REALLY excited about!*
My sweet boy, out for a puddle-splashing adventure with me :-).*

Hope you're all warm and toasty, and loving the Autumn leaves, 
Arohanui, Xx Tink*
