Season of mists....

Where has the year gone? A catalogue of Christmas food goodies is now sitting on my kitchen table, picked up in the supermarket this morning - and we haven't even done with the pumpkins and toffee apples yet! No doubt about it, time goes oh so quickly as you get older. Only a few weeks to go before I send Mr J up to the loft to get the tree down again.

We went out for a longish walk this morning and I have come back with an idea for a piece of jewellery using beaded beads over red leather cord. I've not made beaded beads for ages, it's so rewarding seeing a pile of elements grow and then having the fun of putting them together into a necklace. I will take the colours from the Autumn hedgerow, blackberry, hawthorn, burnished yellow leaves - nature paints such a pretty picture this time of year.

Meanwhile, Misty Dawn is all finished. Apricot agate is said to be good for the immune system, so this is perfect for a winter outfit, although wise to put a scarf on to be extra sure!
