Crafts 4 Eternity # 50, Autumn Inspiration

Today sees another fab sketch from Michele, our guiding light at Crafts 4 Eternity. This week there is an optional theme of using Autumnal inspired, browns & oranges. I chose one of my favourite Miss Anyas to convey this time of year. I paper pieced & 3D'd the umbrella for a bit of dimension. Michele's sketch includes a type of buckle, which I tried to adapt into the flower. I'm not sure it quite works, but it's not too bad. I added a hat pin, again for extra texture. Finally I sneeked 3 dew drops into the top left hand corner, as it was looking a bit bare.
Pop on over to the Crafts 4 Eternity to see the full sketch for yourself & see the wonderful work of my felow DT members.

I'm off to Altrincham this afternoon to sample the delights of the Trafford Food Festival, YUM!! Better wear something loose!! Hope you are having a good weekend, whatever you are up to. Have fun!
