October is coming to an end. The month started out with summer like weather, and about mid month it started to feel more like Autumn.
It was a foggy and drippy day on October 26. We had a few days of temperatures just above 15 Celsius during the day and overnight. But that was about to change.
The colours are still spectacular. The coleus only has a few more days left, and if you touch the stems the leaves start to fall off.
Lots of birds are visiting the feeders, especially those that are migrating.
The colouring is amazing, such a gorgeous blue on their heads. Just look how their eyes stand out. Do you remember reinforcements that were used on binder paper? That what they remind me of.
This flock was passing through and we won’t see a big flock of them till next spring.
Chippy has also been busy in the garden this month. He visits the feeders, gets his cheeks full, and scurries off to hide them in his home under the shed.
The crafty side of me has been busy with a few projects.
I’m really enjoying stitching the tree pattern from Clever Poppy.
I can’t resist having more than one embroidery project on the go at a time. The Welcome Friends snowman was traced onto fabric and the stitching started.
I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.
I saw some resin at a dollar store and just had to try it out. I’ll share how I did it in a later post.
In the summer I had used some stained glass paint from another project to create a solar light jar for the deck. When it was time to bring this inside I took out the solar light and added a tea light in a container so it could be used inside.
Soup is on the menu on a regular basis now it is getting colder. A favourite of mine, potato and split soup, was made for lunches this past week.
