An Autumn Story...

The main reason I enjoy stitching the Marjolein Bastin English garden sampler is it reminds me of the Brambly Hedge stories by Jill Barklem.  I adore Brambly Hedge and its world within a wood.  The little mouse with the nearby juicy blackberries I have just stitched are as adorable as the pictures in Jill's books.

"It was a fine Autumn. The blackberries were ripe, and the nuts were ready, and the mice
                               of Brambly Hedge were very busy."  Autumn Story by Jill Barklem
