Autumn Colour

A little work using the colours of Dartmoor, a place I fell in love with this summer. Using hand dyed threads, silk throwsters waste and scrim.
Evoking the blustery heather and gorse and the big windscuffed sky.

Snatched time to build on the sketchbook - a look at shading in expressive ways.

Making an apple crumble from a nine patch
 Autumn spiral
Turkey chilli to keep out the chilly
 And a very Autumnal friend asleep on a quilt on the kitchen table in the midst of all the activity.

JOY ....
