1 Sweet smelling mustard seed flowers in the foreground, our house in the middle and The Atlantic Ocean, just visible along the horizon. You’ll probably have to click to enlarge to see it as it was rather a grey day.
2 Signs of Autumn all along the Flat Lode Trail round the back of our house, seed heads and berries and a chill in the air.
3 The new fabric shop in Redruth called out to me as I went by. I tried to resist going in but the call was too great!

Fabrics can be so wonderful — I carried several favourite pieces from city to city over decades – thought I’d use them someday, but really just because they were beautiful. I finally succumbed and put them out in a yard sale a few years ago!

Love all the natural elements of your autumn world share here–and yearning to find fabrics like this for my grandchildren’s stocking stuffers for Christmas!

I love the fabrics!! And autumn is my favourite time of the year, just adore the colours of the berries and trees, as well as that slight bite in the air! 😀

I’m with you there. I love Autumn too, even the nights closing in. I love being cosy indoors! 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. 🙂

I love your near and far. I love fabric stores, though I do not sew. I think it is because I have great memories of going with my mom–whe was a wonderful seamstress, and my sister and I were fashion plates because of her talent when we went to school.

You were lucky children indeed! I love to sew but haven’t done much lately. I’m planning on making Hungry Caterpillar cushions for the Grandchildren for Christmas.

Looked like a thistle head to me. I love the smell of autumn too. Waiting for the brilliant colours to start here. Your view is fabulous, Sally!
September 12, 2012 at 7:08 pm
Yes, it is a thistle. I love Autumn though we don’t get the colours quite like you do. We were in the US last fall and it was just wonderful! 🙂

Sadly I couldn#t get the pictures up but yes autumn is really here now isn’t it? xx
September 12, 2012 at 7:06 pm
Shame you couldn’t get the pictures…. Don’t know why not. There’s a definite Autumn chill in the air. See you Thursday? 🙂

What beautiful colours there are in autumn, aren’t there? The feathery seed head – is that ‘Old Man’s Beard’? Love those ones, and the mustard seeds are great.
September 12, 2012 at 7:05 pm
It’s a thistle and is very like Old Man’s Beard. You’ve sent me off on a quest to find some now! 🙂

That feathery seed photo is quite something. Fascinating!
September 12, 2012 at 7:03 pm
Beautiful isn’t it. It was a lovely purple thistle in its former life! 🙂

There seems to be beauty at every turn where you live 🙂 I loved the fluffy white feathery seed head. Sigh, to think I used to blow the top off them & make a wish….
September 12, 2012 at 6:55 pm
Thank you so much, as always! We call the little feathery heads ‘wish fairies’ too! Blow off the fairies and make a wish! Good wishes to you! 🙂

The photo of the feathery seed head is beautiful!
I also adore that Hungry Hungry Caterpillar fabric! It’s so adorable! I looooved that book as a child.
September 12, 2012 at 6:53 pm
I’ve bought some caterpillar fabric to make cushions for the Grandkids for Christmas! They also love the book as my own kids and you did! 🙂
