Happy October 1st, and my color calendar color of the month is, yes, orange! I believe it's one of my favorite colors, I'm being careful with my words so as not to cause jealousy among the other colors.

I've mixed my photos in no particular order just so I liked them color wise. 

And today I went with my daughter in law to the local HomeGoods store and enjoyed the fall decor and the pumpkin spice candles, you can never have too many of those.
Fall has not forgotten to come and bless us with hope and cheer, of course to all those willing to partake, it's a free gift after all.

This week I've had time to piece and plan, working on several projects at the same time. As you can see I also looked back on some of my previous projects knowing I had used a lot of orange in them.

Also note I have added another book by Gwen Marston and Cathy Jones, Free Range Triangles, in my list of good, inspiring quilt books in the right column.

And that is the quilt news from the valley. Where pumpkins are appearing at the local farmers markets.
I hope you're enjoying the fall as I am and remembering to be thankful.

I'll be by to visit and I'll be looking for orange.
