The autumn leaves have nearly all fallen, and I was inspired by my day surrounded by the swaying trees. A wall in my atelier became the perfect
blank canvas to transform. Creating brown arches, the paintbrush weaved freely across the surface. Autumn is perfect to combine different fabric
textures and layers. The skirt entwines various threads, mimicking the layered foliage and branches.
Satin adds a delicate touch, complementing the textured tweed. I created this pleated camisole with the sewing machine, in a soft shade of cream.
A part of me wishes Spring was next in the seasonal shift...the rosy pink blossom remind me of warmer temperatures!
Rich autumn tones of yellow, auburn and garnet create a striking contrast against the light background. The gentle blossom clusters
are stippled in golden and blush tones; a tree in perpetual bloom. Stepping into art, you become a part of the canvas, embracing the scenery.
The wooden palettes also bloom with soft florals in ochre and rose. With the tactile wood grain and textured feel of the skirt's threads, I'm
reminded of the bronzed threadesses fabric canvas I created.
Crisp leaves will soon give way to majestic evergreen trees, standing tall against the icy winds. It'll be time to combine gentle weaves with chunky winter knits, creating a cosy feel. I'm
always in awe of how elements in nature change at different times of the year, forming a magical landscape.
