Autumn and getting ready for the winter



Last week I have been paper piecing for the first time since very long. And ... it actually worked out well (o: Magical tip for me: cut big pieces. This might be a waste of fabric, but with the tiny pieces of this pattern, there wasn't that much to waste (o: Patience was a golden rule too.
The pattern was designed by Kerry at verykerryberry, which you can buy here.

Vorige week heb ik me dan toch weer eens aan paper piecing gewaagd. Ik vond dit zo'n leuk patroon. En ja hoor, het lukte! Gouden tip voor mij: stukken groot genoeg knippen en geduld. Heel veel geduld. Aangezien de stukjes klein zijn van dit werkje, ging er niet veel stof verloren.
Het patroon is ontworpen door Kerry van verykerryberry en kun je hier kopen.



                        -o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o



I'll now take you with me on my walk I took this morning.
Nu neem ik jullie mee met mijn wandeling vanochtend. 



Long shadows.
Lange shaduw.


The colors of these trees are changing every day. Slowly they are loosing their leaves.
De kleuren van deze bomen veranderen iedere dag. Langzaamaan verliezen ze hun bladeren.


Autumn and graffiti.
Herfst en graffiti.



Treasures, all for free.
Schatten om gratis van te genieten.


I felt like a child, walking through the falling leaves (o:
Ik voelde me weer kind, door al die droge bladeren te lopen (o:

My walk this morning looked just like yours minus that amazing cloud formation. I love the long shadows and always wish I had my camera on my walks. What a cute little paper pieced project. Not a favorite thing for me to do and yes, patience is key!!!

What a lovely post Simone...what a good idea about the piecing! What beautiful scenes of your walk...I just love those autumn leaves...I remember once being in a park with autumn leaves and sitting in them...Not so many Autumn leaves in this area...they mainly have lots of green xo

I love crunching my way through autumn leaves too. Beautiful fall captures. The quilt is so simple, yet so cute!
