Monday I went on a field trip to the Wintercreek Nursery with my friend Jenny. The Nursery was filled with glorious examples of the beauty of Autumn in Central Oregon.
I thought I would post a couple of those photos as part of my ongoing series of posts on sources of Creative Inspiration. I think these photo compositions could be inspiration for an interesting art quilt. Feel free to use them for inspiration and if you repost the photos, please credit me as the photographer, thanks.
Here is my absolute favorite of the photos I took:
And here is a tiny little house that I think was covering some plumbing that looked like a real house tucked away in forest growth:
Finally here are a couple photos of Autumn at my house in Central Oregon:
We have a lot of reds, yellows, yellow-greens and greens. We do not have the purples of the Autumn in Vermont (when I lived in New York we used to drive to Vermont in the Fall to see the exquisitely beautiful palette of colors) but I think Autumn is an exceptionally lovely time of year with the Fall colors and the backdrop of an impossibly blue Central Oregon Autumn sky!
Thanks for reading my photo essay of Autumn in Central Oregon!
One of the “non-Wordpress” blogs I love to follow is that of a fellow Central Oregon SAQA member, Kristin Shields. On her blog Kristin Shields: Artist & Quiltmaker, she has a visually beautiful post on Fall Color – October Color.
I’ve made quite a bit of progress on the table runners I am working on (see recent posts) and will sharing a peek in a future post.
Now that the weather has changed (it has dipped into the 60s and 50s during the day and 20s – 30s at night!) it is time to start making knitted hats again in the evenings while watching TV.
I love to wear my knitted hats (yes I only know one pattern) on brisk Fall and Winter walks!
As I mentioned in the post Not Working On What I am Supposed to be Working On, I love to wear my nearly finished hat around the house with the double pointed needles sticking out of the top, as a tradition right before I finished off the hat.
So here is another silly picture of me with my nearly finished hat!
Terry the Quilting Husband puts up with me weirdness!
Oh and here is the full image of the featured photo – I would like to find fabric in this color:
