Saved Leaves

Here are some leaves I collected and pressed in an old Atlas.

Fall is my muse

Fall is bright and sassy on the trail this week there are colors all around and I'm glad I got a few good pictures of them before all the rain. The rain knocks the leaves off of the branches. I love to collect and press leaves to use in my art. The leaves are there long after the trees are bare, and their shapes and colors inspire me.

Some fall themed work

Fall on the Trail

Fall has always been my favorite time of year, it is beautiful and the scruffy trail through the woods is transformed! I love the colors of fall, the bright clear air and the rush of critters scrambling to store up food for the winter or preparing for a long flight south.
 This season is also a little sad, because Winter is around the corner and soon everything will be frozen, the critters will be hiding and most plants will be in their dormant stage. Winters here are harsh and raw most of the time and white and fluffy only sometimes.  I hope to get a fluffy one though then you can still see something when you go out for a walk. So here are some of my favorite views of fall and some of my quilts with that theme enjoy!
