Autumnal Feeling

As autumn sets in, I’m finding it harder to fit my English paper piecing around decent light! This week I have completed one star with borders (number 25):

Hexagon star number 25

and sewn together this star in the waiting room at the swimming pool:

Stitching at the pool

One of the things I do enjoy about this time of year is the harvest! Look at these beautiful crab apples we picked ready for making jelly this week:

I’m linking up with Kathy’s Quilts Slow Sunday Stitching and Monday Morning Star Count at Life Under Quilts.

    I have a small inexpensive folding LED work lamp with a rechargeable battery I carry around in my hexie kit – it’s brilliantly white light, perfect for stitching EPP projects. Might be worth a try now that you’re moving into shorter days.

    Nice stars! I hand sew with my ott light nearby!

  3. Enjoy jelly making and making more stars!

    I have one of the ott snake lights that curls around your neck. Might help with your hand work. Beautiful stars and enjoy making apple jelly.

    I have slowed down on my EPP flowers too and have also been foraging – blackberries, sloes and rosehips – sweet chestnuts are next on the list. The stars are looking beautiful

    Those are gorgeous crab apples, they do make the best jelly. If I lived close I’d come over and help you. Have fun!

    Yum, crab apple jelly sounds delicious. Your stars are pretty. I guess poolside lighting works.

    This pink star is vibrant despite the dimming light. I also struggle with sewing in the fall as the days grow shorter and we have less natural light. Beautiful crab apples, but I must say I never had crab apple jelly.
