Does that sounds a little pessimistic... I suppose it does. But when you look around the berries are ripening, the harvest is nearly in, the birds are beginning to gather on the wires and the mornings have that still, quietness that signals that summer is passing into Autumn.
Another sign of the cooler days to come is that brushed cotton or flannel, if you prefer has begun to arrive in the shop.
Just two so far but more will arrive soon. These are both from Valori Wells Della Flannel Range. Lively colours aren't they? Want something comforting and cosy to curl up with on cool autumn evenings? (!!) Then they'd make a lovely soft, snuggly backings for a quilt or a throw. And how about a soft cuddly toy?
If you're wondering about sewing for cooler days and evenings then this is a recent addition to the shop from Indygo Junction, The London Jacket.
or a waistcoat for a light extra layer...
I love the buttons on that design.
There is also the Simple Sleeved Shawl which can be made out of knitted fabric or wool if you prefer.
Then because at some point it will probably rain (Cheerful aren't I ? ), there is the Amy Butlers 'rainy days hooded raincoat and runabout jacket'
....and for children the 'Little Splashes hooded raincoat and runabout jacket' patterns.
Perfect to see you through the Autumn in style.
