Fall in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan doesn't disappoint! The colors this year have been amazing. A few weekends ago we did a little fall color tour to the Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains. While it was a rather blustery day, the scenery did not disappoint.
This was my first time in the region of the UP and I can't wait for our Labor Day weekend trip here next summer!
The pictures just can do justice to the landscape of the Porcupine Mountains. If you are ever in the western area of the UP, it really is a must see area!
Earlier this summer I made two Bjorn Bear pillows for my girls. Well now my husband and I have our own pillows, made in our favorite colors. First is my husbands red with blue bear. And keeping with the quilting that I did on my girls pillows I did a straight line grid, just added a little extra echoing since I just love the look of it.
My bear is in my favorite colors of green and blue. I really need to make a green and blue quilt someday. Both of this I quilted up on my Janome HD9. I wasn't sure how I was going to like quilting on this machine, but the more quilting I do, the more I fall in love with her for this purpose. Plus she is great for bag making!
I'll leave you with another fall photo from my kiddos school from the other day!
Jess next time you head that way be sure to stop at Bond Falls. About 15 miles off the main road but so worth it. DNR has built paths and viewing platforms.ReplyDelete
It is gorgeous! I love fall and its colors and this year has been a good one too in New England. Glad you are loving your machine and the bear pillows are adorable!ReplyDelete
Your cushions are so much fun! I like the echoed cross hatch. I cross hatch quite frequently but haven't done an echo like that before--now I want to try it! I'm jealous of your lovely foliage!ReplyDelete
