Chrysie Collage

My ‘September Girls’ have all been inspired by the flowers and fruit of this month.

Chrysie takes her colours from the beautiful colours of chrysanthemums.

Perry Collage

Perry has been inspired by the abundance of pears at this time of year.

Aster Collage

Aster’s colours have been taken from the pretty Michaelmas Daisies or asters which are in bloom during September.

I couldn’t let the month of September go by without an apple girl, with the lovely apple name of Bramley.

I gave the June Girls the title ‘festival of flowers’ and I have enjoyed searching through my (many) fabrics for their floral dresses and playing around with my flower buttons. It has been fun!

I also decided to name them this month after members of my family tree so I have used my mothers name, the names of two grandmothers, two great grandmothers and three aunts!

This is Ava, the last of my ‘April Girls’!

I think I’m correct in saying that the Latin for bird is avis and as Ava has lots of little birdies all over her I thought it was a very suitable name for her.

Having read about this book on a few blogs I decided I would like to read the book itself.

Four Hedges for those of you who haven’t read it is about Clare Leighton who was one of the finest engravers of the twentieth century and about her passion for her garden.

Claire’s illustrations throughout the book are amazing.

This also arrived in the post this week, all the way from Australia from the lovely Elizabeth who last year became the owner of Pixie. She sent me a photo of Pixie with a little koala who has now come to live with me in my craft room. Thank you Elizabeth it was lovely to see Pixie again.

I was very lucky this week to win this beautiful artwork in a giveaway. I had just found My Painted Bear on Facebook and fell in love with Naomi’s art, I then noticed that she was having a giveaway, entered and luckily won. When I emailed Naomi I then found out that she too was from N. Ireland and had actually exhibited work in a gallery in my home town. Naomi’s work is beautiful, you can find her Etsy shop here and her blog here. Thank you Naomi.

Now this pretty little bunny just arrived yesterday, isn’t she gorgeous? She is made by the very talented and clever Farrell & Holmes, I defy you not be tempted when you take a look at their website. The bunny is stuffed with lavender and I could smell it as the postman handed the package over to me. You can also find details of their work on their Facebook page.
