Found some interesting "kitty" fabric on our last vacation, and just had to make myself a new purse out of it.
The purse is approximately 8x9 inches. I do not like large purses, only need enough room for my stuff. Never was one to stuff a purse.
Finally finished my fall tablecloth, It is just one layer of fabric, but that is all I need. A big centerpiece goes in the center so the only thing that really shows are the pumpkins on the corners and part of the leaves. I wanted it to look like the leaves just fell and landed there. So I did not add vines as that spoiled the effect.

My favorite season of the year is Autumn, I love to see the changing of the colors of the trees. Especially in the Northwoods where the green of the evergreens contrasts with the reds, yellows, oranges, and silvers of the trees.
Then to set it off even more, the color of the water in the foreground completes the picture.

Someday I want to see if I can do a pictorial quilt of the trees as they change into their fall splendor.

Summer flowers are pretty, but nothing compared to the splendor of fall on the water.
