There is nothing I like more than a bright and crisp autumn day. However few and far between, they are oh so welcome among otherwise gloomy weather, and when a low slung sun casts lengthening shadows, it turns the air golden and sets colours aflame.
I have been gathering some autumnal fabrics recently, and this week, on just such a day, I took my samples out to the local park to photograph them in that slanting golden light.
Zoffany's Harvest is aptly named. First it is printed with islands of flat colour and then richly embroidered with exuberant clusters of ripening fruit and vegetables.
Edinburgh Weavers' Stag is a painterly design of large stag heads, digitally printed on linen.
Abraham Moon's Doune in rust is a 100% wool plaid in subtle blues and browns.
Abraham Moon's Whistler in old gold takes weaving to another level.
Abraham Moon's Fyvie in sand, is a beutifully textured wool and mohair mix.
Don't they look good!
