Outside (and Inside) in October and November


Well, my friends, I have two new sewing projects and one new knitting project waiting in the wings to share with you, but…I’ve been missing photography.  It feels like things are moving quickly…and I want to slow down just a bit.  I’m finally settling in to the fact that it is fall, and I don’t want it to race by without really looking at it.  Being outside always helps me get grounded and I love, love, LOVE taking pictures of things outside (and, in this case, in greenhouses), so here are my best shots from October and November.  There aren’t many, but hopefully they are good.

I think missing photography has been a good thing for me.  A few months ago, a friend introduced me as someone who had a sewing blog.  I was momentarily surprised, until I realized that my nebulous “creativity blog” had morphed into a sewing blog.  I love to sew.  I love making creative things that I can use, but I also love things other than sewing, photography being one of them.  I don’t have the technical knowledge of photography that I do of sewing.  Past photo classes have seeped out of my brain, but living in this beautiful place makes it easy to capture things.  So I think that, for the present, this blog will have a lot of sewing, but also some non-sewing photography.  We all need beauty in our lives, and photography helps me to stop and look.  I hope it brings beauty into your life, too.



About Lisa Poblenz (patternandbranch)

I love sewing and taking pictures! Pattern and Branch is my sewing blog with periodic photography posts (and occasional other side wanderings). It's a journal of my creative practice that I hope will add to the wider community and serve as a personal record to help me remember the details of my projects (because sometimes I need help with that).
