Leaf Peeping, One Patch & Claret Red Stars

We were in the north country this past weekend where my daughter and I did some serious leaf peeping on country roads :)

I love this time of year in the Adirondacks. The view from our deck is breathtaking!   

We made a quick stop when we saw the sun shining through these trees . . .

 . . . and again at the edge of a field. 

We stopped at a lake and admired the shoreline . . .

And a Maple up close . . .

. . . and a Mountain Ash with clusters of red berries against a clear blue sky. How beautiful!

Years ago my daughter gave me this One Patch top which I keep at the cabin. It fits right in with my rustic decor :)


It's mostly flannel and wool with some woven plaids thrown in. I love the way it feels. 

And here are my Claret Red stars from last week. 


Looks like I have a celestial print for this week :)

Happy Sewing!

  1. I like the horseshoe conversation print that you used.

  2. Love your reds stars Barbara !!
    And his Majesty Autumn is coming too in France and I love it !! Very inspiring with its beautiful colours .....

  3. Lovely colors! I find it so hard to capture it. That view is stunning - I just love a view with water of any kind.
    Love your stars - that nautical print is FABULOUS. I've never seen that one.
    see you on monday and tuesday!

  4. Our Fall in Western Pa is not so pretty this year. Love your star color combinations. I need to wait until you do yours before I do mine. Thanks for sharing.
