Let's pretend


It's a little tricky getting enthusiastic about sewing some new Winter woollies in this tropical weather, but the new season is coming, and stuff must be made!
Let's pretend there's a little chill in the air, and a mist on the fields.
We can see our breath as we walk, probably in sturdy boots, and the dogs are happy to get a bit wet romping about in the damp grass....
Our cheeks are all rosy with fresh air and exercise, and a roaring fire and a bit of afternoon tea awaits.
We'd be needing a nice scarf to keep warm, and how about a bit of slightly old fashioned, but pretty, floral cotton paired with a good argyle pattern wool?
I can almost feel Autumn coming can't you?
Take a look over here for more crafty creative goodness.

I love the new scarves Jo. The argyle mixed with florals are inspired! x

Thank you for joining in on my little humid afternoon fantasy!

No!!! Autumn is so depressing. I do love your scarf and the mix of the two patterns though.

usually I dread the onslaught of the cooler months with the dread of a thousand dreads, but your beautiful description of a winter walk helped to lift the fear - I've just taken a screen shot of it and will keep it near to get me through this year's winter. x

Jo, I have worn my scarf at least 6 times over summer. I have also worn my thermal underwear at least 6 times..... oh sorry a little too much information.

I love the scarf.

...I am still living in hope of an indian summer....mummy mookah, I can entirely understand the need for a few thermal undie days 'on the coast', if I had some, I would have worn them too!
