We went for a bit of hiking up at Rock Island. This is a beautiful spot in middle Tennessee. I highly recommend it. The drive alone is beautiful. The park is loaded with falls that are easily accessible. There are great hiking trails for all types of hikers, strenuous and moderate. This is definitely a beautiful time to go with the fall colors in full show.
These are the twin falls.

These are from the Great Falls Dam area.

These berries were so beautiful. I have no idea what they are. I've never seen berries this color before.

Autumn. . .

I love this time of year, the colors, the chill to the air, wood fires, football, the holidays. . .
I have finished my fall quilt. I love this quilt and these colors. It's going right on my bed. The block is Arizona and the fabric is from Connecting Threads, Hearth and Home line. I quilted leaves into the border. I used a stencil and Pounce. This was my first foray with Pounce and I have to say I am extremely pleased. It was easy and it came off very easily too.

It's Football Time in Tennessee!

My son attends Cumberland University. We went to his game yesterday and it was great to watch him play at this level. I've been to every game since he was 5 years old so seeing him play in college was a big deal. He is on the JV team (he's a freshman). He loves it. We are very proud. So here are a few shots from the game yesterday.
This is his roommate, Marcus.
