Autumn falls.

Well, hello there! It has been a while ...
But totally uploaded with solar energy after a fantastic summer, here we are, back at blogland.
What I do and what I see, let my interests, creative excesses and try outs guide you...
And feel free to comment, suggest, question or inspirate...

You can see it, you can feel it...autumn is here.
To celebrate this wonderful coloured season I participated at the Seasonal Celebrations Swap at InspiredMamaMusings.
Tip: keep an eye on her blog for not missing the winter edition!

So autumn is all about cocooning and cosyness and trying to handle the first chillyness.
Feeling melancholic when looking back to the past summer... and gathering ideas for the upcoming holidays ...
Seeing those warm colours of red/golden sunlight through the trees, coloured leaves, candlelight...
Hearing the wind outside and rain against the window, feet curled up on the sofa, accompanied by some good reading matter and hot chocolate.
Soft and warm turtle necks and woolen scarfs... Making walks through the fields and forest and collecting autumn leaves.
The sweet scent of homemade stew or cake...
You'll recover these things in the package I composed for my swap partner. Tammy, I hope you liked it!

Yes, that actually is a self-knitted scarf you see over there. My first attempt at knitting.
With a little help of this knittingcourse. It is written in dutch but with clear pictures of the basic knitting stitches. Very useful for a knitting layperson as this one.
And you, are you in the mood for fall?
