Here I am back in Belgium after a wonderful break back home in England.
The Autumn colours were spread out across the landscape like a paint palette. In the New Forest (Hampshire) the landscapes are dotted with charming little (and far from little) homes nestling in cosily amongst trees.
Whilst searching for a place with the wonderful name of Castle Hill we came across this walk that was dotted with the most magical toadstools in all forms. I could just imagine little mice sheltering under the wider ones like umbrellas and the fairies had obviously been busy sewing little yellow trims along the edge of this one! (click on all images to get larger views).
Upside down ones that would work a treat as little teacups!
It really was magical as we walked up and down across the heather that had turned a wonderful russet brown that glowed even on this misty morning.
By the afternoon the sun had come out and didn't go away for our whole trip! We took literally hundreds of photos so I'll be making selections to share with you all. For all those of you that love toadstools as much as I do I'm busy sewing these adorable country cottage style toadstool hanging ornaments. These are being made for an order for my wonderful stockist in the UK, Cottontails. They will be COMING SOON so to start with they'll be made in a limited number. I'll be sure to let you know when they'll be available there.
It's been all go since I got back printing orders to send out. I have my new stichy project nearly ready to share with you all, so if you fancy a craft project of your own come back soon! Hugs, Catherine x
