First weekend of Autumn

While at Tanglebank Quilt Show I found this love rainbow selection of wool fabrics for my wool crazy sewing project. 
 These wool fabrics I found while in Oregon at a couple of different locations.
 Today I went for a walk and found the beauty berry plant.  This is the first time I've found it with the leaves still on and the berries so small.
 I think our colours this year will be amazing due to all the sunshine we had in August.
 This is my favourite oak leaf hydrangea.
 The zinnias are still blooming.
 This salmon colour is so pretty.  I may have to design one in wool.
 The colours of fall are so amazing.
 This magenta grass almost looks neon.
 It rained in the night and the water droplets were hanging onto to some of the plants.

Now I know my ABC's by Cheryl Wall.  Once again for the second year the day was perfect for viewing quilts, taking pictures, meeting friends and shopping.  I look forward to attending this show again next year in this beautiful setting.  Congratulations to all involved with this wonderful show.
