These are beautiful autumn last few weeks! So beautiful, some of the days were warmer than the summer days were.
We still have the birds around. The scream of the Blue jay through the open windows was interrupting my thoughts constantly and I couldn't resist the temptation of playing 'Hide-And-Seek' with him. My sight was chasing after his blue shadow, only catching the glowing white of the feathers for a second and than loose it again into the green leaf clouds of the hairdo of the twelve-year old maple across the fence. This little bird is not only sassy, he is smart enough to always hide in the biggest trees. My eyes were not getting tired - I was satisfying their thirst for green to the maximum. The leaves on the maple were giving all the signs of getting tired and ready to burn in red very soon. While I was looking for this little devil with widely spread blue shadow, I noticed that the tip of the maple is changing - as if the sun was resting there longer and burnt the first few leaves... And again the loud scream of the Blue jay woke me up from my day dreaming to take my sight with him to the burr oak on the other side of the street, where the bird was already completely lost into the curly leaves, that protect the fruits of the fall. Few squirrels jumped over the branches and hid into the distance. My eyes couldn't catch any further - the images became too distant and the loud arguing of the Blue jay suddenly soften with the wind. I stayed longer in my garden - the day was absolutely beautiful. The crisp chilly mornings are so beautiful - best light of the year. The sunbeams, filtered through the thick layer of dew create warmness. And the tiny crystal drops on my roses make the flowers feel royal and extremely beautiful.
Mornings like this one inspire me to create something delicate and elegant. And despite the perfect autumn mood that I was set on, I was thinking of one design from Daily Like Canada, that grabbed my attention and did not let go, until I cut into this unique fabric to create a winter decoration for the upcoming holly days.
