THE SMELL OF FALL

Yes, the smell of Fall is in the air, at least in Utah.  Sorry Janice, but I know Fall doesn't have a smell in Florida.  I have been watching over my father in Utah now for almost 9 months.  So, this is the first fall since I was 20 years old.  Cold air has a smell, a good smell.  Rain smells great.  The colors are amazing.  While I missed all the mountain leaves change colors, (I was in Houston), the trees in the valley are in all different stages of changing.  I put a couple of pictures at the bottom of the blog.

Now, on to the important stuff.  I can't imagine how, but I left off one of the new quilt projects from Market on the last blog.  WAITING FOR LOVE  is our first table topper.  It is 52" square and made to fit over your favorite table.  We used Basic Grey's new line, BLUSH  from Moda.  One layer cake and some yardage, so not only is it cute, but it is fast.  For all you  tweeter's out there, you should have already seen it.  Fat Quarter Shop tweeted it the first day of Market.

This picture was in our booth.  This picture was taken upstairs in the convention center.


We also got a new picture for HONEY PIE, the new quilt using EDEN, for Moda, by Lila Tueller.  Isn't it great for a little girl's bed.


Since we are now talking about little girl's quilts, (what a segway), we have been very busy this week working on a new project.  Only hints for now.  It involves a little girl's bed, OZ fabric from Moda, and a magazine.  Ok, just a teaser, but we have to wait until February to see the final quilt also.

Now, those fall colors I promised.


Around the neighborhood.


In the yard.


Up the street.


Skiing is just around the pumpkin.

And last, one of my favorite places, I have shot scenes from different areas in this valley.  This shot is looking over the Pine View resevoir up at Snow Basin, the local ski resort.  And yes, that is the first snow of the season.


Hope ya'll have a great week.
Janice and Marcea

You are so right, there is no fall smell in Florida. But I do enjoy seeing pictures of the fall color. Love how your blog is shaping up. It's very lovely.
