the call of fall

This rainy, chilly fall Sunday in Vermont inspired me to spruce things up a little for fall. Our hiking trip today was canceled, so amongst a long list of errands and chores, I managed to sneak away into the "craft cave" for a bit.


I've been longing to make some patchwork towels for myself since I first made some last Christmas as a gift. It's rare that I make anything and keep it for myself, so this was a treat!


I used my new batch of Moda Arcadia fabrics... perfect tones for fall!


They are now happily adorning my now very off-white looking cabinets. (Honey, is it time to paint the kitchen?) :-)


Which reminds me, I also used these delectable fabrics to make two linen pillows which got snapped up right away in my Etsy shop. I really do love this graphically bold line of fabric.


Here's to the beginning of crisp days, crimson leaves, bumpy gourds, sweaters and clogs! How I do love fall in Vermont. (Oooo, we also picked up some apple cider today from Cold Hollow Cider Mill... mmm.) What are your favorite fall muses?
