It's the 1st of September, which is always New Year for me. I am a Secondary School teacher, so along with getting my kids prepped and ready to start the new term I do too. New shoes? check New uniform? check (nice navy wool dress from TK Maxx - Bargin!). New pens and pencils? mmm not yet but Wild Olive's pencil wraps may be just what i'm looking for to smarten up my old ones!
Anyway, I am also excited because it will soon be Autumn, which is my favourite season. The colours, the smells, the anticipation of the holidays. It is usually the most hectic time so I am so glad that Rachel from Stitched in Colour is running a Celebrate Colour series. It will ensure that I focus on making stuff ready for presents etc and not just sit in front of the TV watching films, drinking spiced hot chocolate when the kids are in bed - although that does sound tempting!
My favourite Autumn colour has to be purple or plum as some call it - that reminds me I must show you my hubby's spiced plum jam, it's like Autumn in a jar mmmmmm!
When we went camping last weekend I found my inspiration for the season. The heather on the top of the Long Mynd looked amazing!
I know I have some Rico Creative Cotton in purple lying around somewhere. now all I need to do is think about what to make!
