Fall into Fall!!!!

Can you believe it's October 1st already??!!  I love October...the smell of the leaves as they change to glorious shades of rust, red, amber and gold...the smell of wood smoke as cold weather creeps in and wood stoves get fired up...the smell of ripening apples hanging within arm's reach begging to be picked and cooked with cinnamon and spices....the fresh clean frosty mornings that clear out the stale air from my lungs and refresh me..the beautiful huge shiny harvest moon that lights the night up as if it were day and seems to hang so close to the earth that you could reach out and touch it...the feel of sticky and wet pumpkin seeds as I prepare the annual Jack-o-lantern...I love all of it!

I, also, love celebrations and that it why I joined the Fall into Fall Quilter's Blog Giveaway!; a great way to start the fall season!  Thanks to Debi for this wonderful idea and for organizing it, which is a big job!  Make sure you click on my sidebar scarecrow to go visit the main site where all the bloggers who are participating can be found!

I think fall is the favorite season of most quilters, maybe it is because there are so many rich beautiful fall colors. Mine favorite is red, dark rich barn red. Enjoy the season. BettyLou

Hi Shelley. I love ALL Fall colors but to choose a favorite Fall color it would be rust-y.

My favorite OVERALL color is hunter green..and of course Chocolate Brown...oops, I guess that's TWO colors...I'm bad.

Happy Fall.

Red is my favorite (tho orange and blue are close behind); I love the red you've used as the background of your blog. Thanks very much for the variety in your giveaway; the leaf fabric would be the perfect fabric to use as the "theme" fabric in a quilt.

Canadian Kristin said...

Oh, how I would love to win your prize...and you may think this silly... but my pins keep flying out of the little box and the pin cushion I tried to sew just didn't come out right, and I refuse to use the little red tomato one I have because of bad home ec memories from high school (shudder at the remembrance of that strangely shaped nightie I couldn't quite make properly)! Anyway, I am a newbie quilter and sure appreciate seeing your work for insight and inspiration!
My favourite colour is orange, whether bright and shiny or rusty and dull!
