Last week, Kirsty and I spent a day in the beautiful surroundings of Haddo House. We were there for their annual Christmas Craft Fair as well as to walk around the lovely grounds and park.
Kirsty took a particular liking to this gorgeous tree, and she feels inspired to create an autumnal textile piece.
We took lots of photos and collected fallen leaves and beech nuts to provide inspiration back at home.
The ground was covered, and I mean literally covered, in silvery webs which you could only see at certain angles. Unfortunately this amazing sight didn't work well on camera, but here's a close up of a web that Kirsty wants to incorporate into her piece.
Her project is still at the early stages, but hopefully I'll be able to blog about it once it's finished.
Meanwhile, here's a wall hanging I made recently using various autumnal shades.
