The purple streak continues . . .

Last post I was mentioning the abundance of purple . . . and it continues.  A few weeks ago we had the most stunning sun rise . . . pinks and purples!

Marlene has been a quilting maniac over the summer!  I think she's on a mission to diminish her fabric stash (haha - we all know that that never happens!) - here are three of her projects from over the summer.

Colourful Stars Quilt - Hearts in Bloom panto; Glide thread; Hobbs Heirloom Wool batting

Vintage Roses Quilt - Ribbons and Roses panto; Glide thread; Hobbs Heirloom Wool Batting

Embroidered Butterfly Quilt - Freehand Butterfly Wings; Glide Thread; Hobbs Heirloom Wool Batting

I am excited about making "string quilts" from my bins of leftovers!  Here's a photo of my first one - it has a very autumn feel about it, doesn't it. 

Yikes - heres' where I started!

hmmm . . . similar colours!  This photo is from Los Alamos in Sonora, Mexico.

These last two pictures are an example of how beautiful the tamarack(larch) trees are when the needles are turning colour in the fall . . . taken at Kimberley, BC in October, 2014.

Happy Halloween from the Little House!
