Rolling Along

Most of my area here in the Lakes Region is still not yet at peak color for the beautiful Fall foliage. This is just in front of my house and you can see that only a bit of one tree is glowing.

But further on my way to Alton, New Hampshire, only a couple of miles away, the same roadway looked like this!

Frequently, as you are driving along, a sudden gust of wind will send a swirling shower of golden brown leaves all around you and drawing you into Autumn's glory. It is fabulous!

My clothesline was decorated with some lovely buckskin backgrounds in my beloved Civil War tones, thanks to Keepsake's warehouse sale.

I had fun over the weekend finishing up the last of the Marcus Brother's Sew Along blocks, too.

I had to pay attention to the color order of the strips, but there were no problems with it.

If you'd like to make this one, it is by Lisa Shepard Stewart who write the "Marcus Mentions" blog. Here is the link.

Her directions were very easy to follow and after a nice pressing with some starch, I was delighted that the block measured a perfect 8 1/2". Wheeeee!

 I'm looking forward to the big final reveal on Friday of how the blocks will be set. Mostly, I'm pleased to have been able to keep pace, LOL!

Happy sewing!

Nice finish on your SAL blocks. I am very curious to see the layout.
You have more color in your neighborhood than we do. : )

We don't have much autumn colour yet as the weather has been unusually mild so far. Your washing line looks lovely too with all those fabrics :)

So wish I had been able to come back east this year. It's been three years and I miss spending two weeks surrounding myself with the beautiful colors and soaking up the atmosphere. It feeds my soul. Thanks for posting the pictures to give me just a little feel of autumn in New England.
