I guess staying up late has it's advantages - I can be the first Oct. 1 post for your giveaway!! My favorite thing about fall is many things together - the cool, crisp air, the leaves on the trees turning to red, gold, orange, and the sound of leaves when they crunch and you walk on them, and then a feeling of being cozy near the fire. It's my favorite season!! The basket is just precious and thanks for the tutorial link so I can make one, too!!!

T said...

Wow! What a cool little bag! Me! Me! Me! :-D

My favorite thing about THIS fall (there are quite a few!) is the sunny, warm days and cool, crisp nights. Heaven for sleeping!

Thank you for your wonderful contribution for this Fall give away event. Your little bag is awesome.
I love the crisp days of fall when the wind is just starting to show the nips of Jack Frost.
I love seeing the animals liven up with the cool weather after the long hot summer. Riding out in the open seeing the grasses and trees turn wonderful shades of oranges, reds, browns, purples... on must not forget yellow in there either :)
Whats not to love about the fun of Halloween?
Please enter me into your drawing.. I would love to win. Thank you.

Tanya said...

Rats, I missed out being first though it is almost the close of October 1st here in Japan. The thing I love most about the fall season are the little orange persimmons hanging on the leafless persimmon trees with their almost black branches. They look like mini Halloween hanging ornaments!

Best thing about fall is the cooler weather and the chance to make yummy stews and soups with thick fresh bread to dip...hmmm!

I love the preparing for winter that fall brings. Storing the last of the fresh fruits and veggies so you can have that taste of sunshine mid winter. Just the slowing down of everything before winter sets in.

I love hearing that school bus coming down the street again. :) Oh, and I love the sound of leaves crackling under my feet.

karenfae said...

Fall into fall - I love this season, so many bright colors - they say things are dying - but to me they are just going to sleep for a little while. I love the fall harvest of pumpkins & apples, I love not having to turn the heat on for a little while and can bake without heating the house up too much. I love sitting on the porch with a sweatshirt and a cup of cappunicino to keep the chill off and I really like all the fall gardening that can be done - or just taking a break on the porch with a quilt that needs quilting or piecing.

The fall is my favorite time of the year. The weather cools off but is still comfortably warm in the day time with sweaters or light jackets needed at night. The colors are fantastic, especially if we have had enough rain in the summer like this year. The holidays are approaching and family gatherings are a big part of it. I love to cook big meal and have loved ones gathered around the table.
The basket/bag is adorable,

My favorite thing about the fall season is those few days when it's cool enough to turn the AC off and open the windows. In Florida, that does not happen often enough!

What a lovely prize, I'd love to be entered into your drawing!

Fall (Autumn) is the time I get to enjoy perfect weather. The long hot summer is past and the freezing winter is still on it's way. In winter I prefer summer and in summer I prefer winter but in Autumn .... I'm happy.

I love apple picking in the fall. Walking through the orchard on a crisp Wisconsin day with the sweet scent of apples in the air is a fall ritual for me - I love, love, love it!

My favorite thing about fall is when the apples are ripe and we take them to the cider mill! So far this year, 42 gallons and counting! Yum!

Love the fabric "basket" and the fabric!

Thanks and piece, Elaine

I have lots of favorite things about fall, I think it's my favorite season!

The top choices would be the smells and leaves crunching under my feet and curling up with a quilt on my lap for hand quilting.

Love the basket and can't wait to hear a monster update!

Marilyn,
My favorite thing about fall is, I love any thing made with pumpkin, such as pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, and carving pumpkins with my kids.

I made one of these adorable fabric basket, and it turned out so cute. Thanks for the great tutorial.
