Autumn has arrived in Suffolk with a vengeance, not the clear bright cold days of autumn, but wet and grey.  There is beauty to be seen in the oranges and reds of the trees and my pyracantha has finally started to colour (seems much later than others this year).

  Also made a little autumnal bunting to off set the monotony of making Christmas garlands... I have had orders for 126 so far!  That is mainly through facebook, as I cannot put them on etsy and folksy as I have a 6 week waiting list now (hopefully?!) if I sew all day and every day.  But I am not going to complain about being busy, I am so grateful for people enjoying my work and it will make me really happy to think that there will be lots of  households with bunting that I have made hanging up in their homes over Christmas.  It's such a nice feeling - I love my job! x

  2. Pretty photos. I love your bunting, well done! Your pyracantha looks a little different from mine, the berries are maybe more red on yours? I had never seen pyracantha until I moved to the desert but when I looked it up online a few years ago, many of the articles and photos I found were from the UK! I thought that was funny because our climates are so different but they must both be perfect for pyracantha. My entire back garden wall is covered with a pyracantha hedge; it's great for privacy because it's tall and thick, and the sharp thorns keep people out too! :)

    1. It's great how it does so well in two completely different climates. It can be red, yellow or orange I think, mine hasn't quite turned as red as it will get. The blackbirds love it here too x

  6. Well done Julie. You are doing great. But be careful you don't burn yourself out. Been there, and it's not a nice place to be. Take time to rest too. x

    1. I know, it's a fine line isn't it? The only stress is getting them all done in time along with preparing for the various Christmas fairs I'll be doing in the next couple of months... the work itself, well, it's not work when you love what you do! Jx
