I Like Thursday #115 ~ Welcome November! from Life in the Scrapatch

Welcome to  I Like Thursday,

I Like Thursday @ Not Afraid of Color

This is the last rose of summer. 

This last pink rose on the climber on my garden arch is bravely opening to the sun today even though we had our first nip of frost last night.  This beauty was protected by a nearby fence.  Many of our more exposed annuals were shriveled up this morning. Some of our hardy mums are still blooming.

Most of the leaves on the maples have dropped and the oaks are falling, too.

The colors of late fall are dark and vibrant, nature ...

Wednesday WIP: Green Sampler Spree Blocks from Patchwork Sampler Blog

I am having fun with the Sampler Spree QAL. Making these blocks is like eating potato chips. You just can’t stop. They are easy to make and only take a few minutes. Instant gratification!
