*the last leaves and a soft mouth

Arms of strong trees invite for a rest,
when the last leaf is squinting in the sun,
holding on to the year
that is fading away.

A soft mouth, 
tender as it can be,
speaks of trust
in a world full of pain.

*big trees and a blue cage

Once in the while we are visiting the wild park area (about half an hour car ride away from our home, so not very far). I love that place, because there are still very big, old trees, each so unique and soulful. There is this sky-blue cage thing in the middle of the meadow that looks so surreal somehow. I want to see this place when all is full of snow, maybe we mange this winter! Wishing you a cozy weekend!

*dark clouds, fall winds and braided hair

Dark clouds, fall winds and braided hair.

We are having our first snow! I was pretty surprised when it started yesterday evening. I packed my camera and made a walk when it was still dark in the morning to enjoy it, before it is all gone again, but it's still there now! I also started to crochet after a long break. It feels good to do some needlework again, especially with those long evenings. Have a good start into the new week and keep warm!

*cozy home

The golden October has been replaced with a misty and dark November. A drastic change, but it is still quite mild. No first snow yet! My urge for a simple way of living was never greater. And never have I felt more fulfilled.

Have a good start into the new week and feel free to tell me how you create coziness at this time of the year for yourself to get along with those dark days.

I made this fox illustration for the spoonflower animal tea towel contest some weeks ago. It is designed to fit exactly a Fat Quarter of "Linen Cotton Canvas Ultra" fabric, so it's perfect for getting one tea towel out of it, or 4 pieces if you order one yard of the fabric. Thank you to all who already purchased my fox fabric or other designs! Happy sewing!

*yellow and blue

Fall is all about introspection,
reading and enjoying the everyday changes of nature.
