Autumn is coming


I can tell the seasons are starting to change here in Scottsdale... not by the leaves turning colors though but because the night time temperatures are dropping. We are still having days in the 90's but at night it has been a lovely 70's. I can open the windows and turn off the a/c. My roses are going to put on a spectacular show again and maybe this time I will take a picture.
I have been working on my b/w challenge piece and I am getting tired of it so I decided I needed some color to perk me up. I used some scraps and stamps to turn out this block. It is going to be used in a quilt for someone else. My part is finished.

This certainly says Autumn to me. Here in the Northeast the trees are just starting to turn, but it will be a few weeks before we hit "peak'.
I'd love to see pictures of your roses. I have to go to a rose garden to get photos. No luck with my growing them.

Your leaf is lovely. Maybe your roses are sharing their beautiful colors ....

The colors in this leaf piece are luminous, Sherryl. Shana Tova to you, too.
