End of the Month...

Pumpkins -- from my garden.  the lines are fence marks where it grew.  Next year, I'll be better at it.  Every year a learning experience.  I got four pumpkins that big.

The leaves are 'peaking' in the U.P.  Basically that is the point when they are most colored and still hanging on the trees. Our woods are Yellow from all of the Aspen  and Maples.
No flash used on the camera, this is a tree that crosses my daily path in the woods.  I've said for 9 months I was going to take a quilt shot here-- and now it's done.  This is my Hop to it Quilt.  I love it and about to put it on the quilt frame. I try to think about my favorite part-- the colors, the different backgrounds of each block, or the friends I made it with. It's a toss up.....
You can see the worn trail from daily travels...It's definitely Autumn.
Don's home. I worked hard Thursday -- laundry, house work all done.  I've got a weekend to just play.

It is just gorgeous, Melanie! I love it so much. Great job and I'll bet it is nice to have it done.

I love your pumpkins. Those are some good-sized beauties. Your porch arrangement looks a lot like mine :D

I love mums and pumpkins together.

Our colors down here are turning fast and I would guess in another week or so and we'll be at our peak. I can't believe how quickly they're changing.

Take care,
Sue

Love your quilt photographed in the woods. I picked up mine yesterday and am going to try to get the binding on this week. I went to a quilt show yesterday and there were 3 Hop To It quilts. I am planning to post some pictures next week.
I have one pumpkin growing, still green. I am going to have to do a search and find out when I need to pick it. Of course I know it needs to be orange. lol

Your new quilt is spectacular! And the place where you photographed it is perfect. It's going to be a real beauty when it's quilted... hope you enter it in a show somewhere so more people can see it.

Well done Mel, it's beautiful! So is the setting in the woods where you photographed it. I'm looking forward to our "full color" days, but we have a few weeks!

Beautiful quilt in a beautiful setting! I'm thinking the UP must be a magnificent place to live!

Your Hop To It quilt is gorgeous! What a great job you did on it. Don't you just love Fall? I love the colors, the smells and the coziness of it all!
