The colors of fall "leaf" me happy so the Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop is right up my alley. Our instructions were to make fall blocks - not necessarily to finish them up, just make them to share. So........
I worked on adding some fall colored New York Beauty blocks.
|The blue is actually purple!!|
They will be added to others that I have been working on to eventually make a quilt. These are the new ones to which I added a few of the others so you can see where I am going with this.
Our neighborhood is invaded each evening by hundreds of black crows at this time of the year. They come for the falling acorns that are run over in the street. The caw-caw calling of the birds is deafening for several hours each night so in honor of the crows I created this. It is hand quilted and embroidered.

What would autumn be without turkeys and the wonderful smells from the kitchen? This will be my Tom overseeing the cooking of Thanksgiving dinner.
