Tuesday Treats: It is still Autumn somewhere in the World

For so many years I lived in northern & central Australia where there are only two seasons, so I delight in the changing seasons in Victoria.

Autumn colours always signal the end of summer, cooler temperatures and rain, time to re-energise and to work inside on creative ideas.

The fall colours on the pavement caught my eye one morning and had me wondering what I could stitch.

I already have some great traditional embroidery  pieces in my collection but, this year, I really want to break away from traditional stitching to create an abstract project.

So the first step for an Autumn collage was to hunt out some autumn coloured threads.

And some fabric

Will this fabric make a good starting point?

You will have to call back at a later date to follow the progress of my Autumn project.
