"Leaf" Pocket

An autumn design in the middle of the hottest summer on record!  It felt good to think of cool, crisp October days as I worked with these fall colors.

The leaf is a 'find' from long ago -- again I'm searching through my stash to see what I can find that will go well with these petite pockets.

I'm thinking that dried flowers or branches will be a good addition to this Fall themed pocket.

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.". - George Eliot


  1. It is really lovely! Not that I welcome fall mind you, but it is gorgeous anyway!

  2. It's amazing how we always seem to long for the next season to come, isn't it!

  3. As always, I LOVE it! It's in honor of my favorite season, and one that I am looking forward to this year more than ever. The leaf and earth-tones are perfect. I like the gradual transition of colors. Beautiful!

  4. Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, I AM looking forward to fall. I know that I should live in the present and enjoy the beauty around me -- but there you have it, I'm just not a hot weather girl.

  5. I love your pockets. I have made many myself ... from old sweaters ... easier than the labor-intensive work you do! I also make a series that have "pennies" on them with little dolls inside, called "Penny Pocket Dolls." Almost all my pocket photos are from pre-digital camera - I should dig them up and post. But will I? Ha! Procrastination ... thy name is Morna.

  6. Look, look! I hope you like it. If not, tell me and I'll remove it. xo


  7. Not a hot weather person either and ADORE your work!
