Let's Celebrate Color! {My Fall Inspiration} : :

Have you seen? Rachel of Stitched In Color has organized a fabulous three month long celebration, starting September entitled CELEBRATE COLOR, partnered alongside emma lamb, luvinthemommyhood, and Mollie of wild olive!

Celebrate Color is for fiber artists of all kinds -- embroidery, crochet, knitting, quilting, home decor, clothing and any kind of wearable fiber creations.

Fall sewing has already begun for me, as you may have noticed. The colors I've been pullling are deeper, warmer shades of the brights I usually work with. I find this time of year more inspiring than any other! In additon to all the lovely changes that occur outdoors during this beautiful season, there are many other things that define Fall to me -- sewing with warm colors, casting on with wool, baking, stone fruits and pumpkins, flannel pajama pants, layers of cozy clothing, quilts, and blankets, painted furniture, rustic woods, harvest decor, indoor crafting, and lots of pillows (naturally). Here's a little mosaic of images and inspiration of the plans I have for sewing and knitting this Fall.

I'm linking this up with the start of Celebrate Color...and now it's your turn! Get creative, get crafting, start thinking cozy fall and join in the celebration!


  1. Great mosaic! I just love the little fox in the lower left.

  2. Awesome colors.. dont forget, it is pie season!!!!

  3. The colors and photos are gorgeous! I'm sad to see summer go but I think I am in the minority!

  4. that little a line dress is soooo sweet!

  5. Love the Fall colors! Of course it's still 100 degrees here in So Cal so I'm not quite in Fall mode yet.

  6. Oooh, beautiful!!! I especially love the stacked yarns!!

  7. Hey, that yarn heart in the center seems to perfectly match your upper right pillow. Those must be your colors!

    I'm feeling a FELT pillow coming on for me. Felt really feels right this time of year.

  8. I love your mosaic! Your colors are so cheery and make me want to get busy making stuff. And that's a sign of good inspiration, right?

  9. what a lovely host of inspirational images! The stripy chair is fun! I look forward to seeing what you create :)
