"Fall Fever"

There's been a lot of talk about fevers this fall. Generally speaking I think we are all trying to avoid getting one. However, this fever might be the exception. I'm hoping that "Fall Fever" is one fever you'd like to acquire!

I told you about these fabrics last week. The orange leafed fabric on top is from a line called "Arcadia" by Sanae for Moda.

The fabric on the bottom of the tote is a Valori Wells creation from her "Deh Li" line. I adore them separately, but together -- ooh-la-la. Together they make me start spouting French.

What do you think of this real coconut shell button? Me? Do I like it? Thank you for asking. I am in love with it. If I wasn't already married, I would marry it. That's why I have taken approximately 756 photos of this bag each one with the button as the main focus... (I'm so transparent.)

This is the first of three bags I'm making with coordinating fabric. It will be fun to see how similar -- or different -- these bags will be with just a few minor changes in fabrics.

I think this new pattern will be a successful one as "Turquoise Tantrum" has already been bought and flown the coop. She's on her way to a new home in Ireland. (I should be so lucky.) I think she'll enjoy living there.

Fall Fever will be in my Etsy shop later today...

I never would have thought to put the fabrics together, but it is beautiful. That is why I don't make things.

Your a crack up...I take tons of photos of my finished quilts as well...it is so hard to part with them after putting the work into them and watching as they come to life! I can just imagine it is the same for you, right?
