Autumn

First day of Autumn.......what?.....wait....I wasn't done with Summer yet!
Don't get me wrong... Autumn is a lovely time of year....but the trouble with Autumn is, that Winter comes fast on its heels......and I do NOT like Winter!

This thinking inspired me to create a new snowflake.






here is the drawing I did on one section of the paper in preparation for the cutting.


 Staples hold the 12 layers firmly in place


To get the points of my scissors into small areas I usually use a hole punch, but these are some pretty small areas, far too small for a hole punch, so I used the tip of an awl to make holes. ( a piece of cork tile allows the awl to sink in but protects my table surface)


This is how it looked once the cutting was done but before I unfolded the layers of paper.

Pure Genius Dear! This is a lovely Falling into Autumn tribute. I also love Summer and agree Winter is too close for comfort. I do pray for rain though. We are desperately drought dry and burning up here in California. Lovely paper cutting...

I agree with all the above accolades about your work, it is so inspiring! What kind of scissors do you use that must be so very sharp to get such accuracy? Enjoy this beautiful FALL and spring will be back before you know it :0).

Happy Sewing
