Foto Finish - Leaves

My big news of the week?  The washer is fixed!  Yeah!  As much as I hate doing laundry, I'd much rather be doing it here than at the laundromat. Which is good as I have a lot of laundry to wash, dry and put away this weekend. 

It's time for this week's Foto Finish.  Barbara has picked "leaves" as this week's optional theme.  October is a great month to take "leaf" shots as the trees are finally starting to put on their end of the season show.  To help with the show, the angle of the sun this time of year makes for really blue skies.  I actually had a number of images to choose from as Drama Teen gets a few days off school for Fall Break and we usually take off work for a short family trip to someplace.   

I love the contrast of the red, orange and yellow against the blue.  This image comes from one of those Fall Break trips, but I'm not sure where we were.  I do remember it was a small town in Missouri.  My Guy thinks it was Washington, Missouri, which is likely as it's been a favorite destination.  Washington sits at the eastern end of Missouri's Wine Trail and is a good start or end to a trip down the trail. 

That's it for my Foto Finish this week.  Check out the other images posted over at Cat Patches


  1. So glad you are able to do laundry again. The only thing worse than having to wash is not being able to. Beautiful leaves. I miss that part of fall.

  2. Very pretty. I like your scrappy test two. I like the pink and brown just the way it is. Also as I look at the cups on your design wall, I don't think that any of them stand out any more than the others. Good job on this. I think it's going to be a cute quilt.

  3. We don't appreciate those modern conveniences until we have to do without them for a while. Glad you have a functional washing machine again.

    Your fall photo is gorgeous Kate.

  4. So funny to be reading about autumn when we are in the middle of spring (admittedly in an unseasonable cold snap)!

  5. Hooray for the washer being fixed! Going to the laundramat is OK, in that you can do it all at one time, but it's a pain to have to drag all of it there.

    Great leaf shot - I feel like I'm right there looking up at it!

  6. Great leaf shot, love the colours against the blue sky.
    Yay for your washer being fixed, it's awful when you don't have the convenience of being able to wash clothes in your own home.

  7. Thanks for commenting on my blog yesterday! I have a fall leave quilt on my bucket list. I used to live in St Charles, Mo and really really miss the wine country. Such a great area, I actually liked it better than my visit to Napa Valley in Ca.
