Autumn in a basket...

taking a stroll around our farm, fields and woods usually
has me bringing a basket along...
to gather little tidbits of Nature that I collect ~

here is a basketful of Autumn treasures:


what's that you say?
never have you seen mushrooms and acorns like that before??
oh I have...
in my imagination ~

made from hand dyed wool roving and needlefelted...
wearing little dried acorn-top hats
and setting on a bed of dried moss ~


I love them!

the mushroom holds old rusty pins ~


I think I'll pile a bunch into a wooden bowl
and just look at them ~ they make me smile :)

do you like the needlepunched project in my header up there?
it is the 2nd soon-to-be-released pattern model~
it's called
'Colonial Hill Farm'
i had that wonderfully folky red & mustard frame
for so long and it just fits the piece perfectly!

I'm off to begin the last project model...
'Ye Ladye Pumpkin'



have a wonderful evening, Friends ~

blessings from the farm,
Lori
