The weather here in the South of the UK has finally changed. It was nice and surprisingly pleasant for a long time (I didn’t get a jacket out until last week!). But now, the miserable cold and wet British Autumn has finally started. November is my least favourite month of the year. Has always been. I’ve just moved the laptop to the cutting table so I could have a bit more light. I might have to emigrate here definitely for the remainder of the gloomy season.
Another attempt to make the gloominess go away is to try and relish in the warmth and comfort of beautiful and colourful handmade items.
Who wouldn’t have their soul warmed up by such a beautiful display? Looking at the picture and turning around to look at those quilts and cushions definitely help making up for the lack of light, cold and dampness outside.
Add some beautiful yarn, and you might start feeling more human again. This picture was taken a a few days ago and now, there isn’t much of it left. It has been transformed into a lovely finished item which I can’t show you as it’s going to be published, I think early next year. The yarn is the very more-ish Scrumptious DK in Magenta. The bright colour mixed with the lightly spun merino and silk blend definitely soothe my soul. As long as there are such beautiful things around me, I know I’ll make it to the other side of the greyness. Hopefully.
(By the way, I don’t dislike grey as a colour. I like it very much actually. It’s going to be one of the colours for my curiouser and curiouser quilt. It’s just grey / lack of light outside that I hate).
