my fabric muse & a giveaway!

While I went to grab my camera to share this super cute applique pattern with you, Avery hurried to the kitchen to grab a piece of pizza. With the pizza sauce inches from her fresh, white shirt I snapped a photo! Not only is she fast but she's sneaky too! :) Okay, back to the pattern, I've been wanting to use this pattern on one of Avery's shirts for months and I finally did! I found it at Sandi Henderson's blog. She designed all the fabric in the quilt I made for Quincey, this book, the recycle bag etc etc. She's amazing!
The fabric I used on this tee is Amy Butler (shame on me;) but I can't wait to play with Sandi's new Farmer's Market line. If I could only even attempt to sew the skirts and other beauties she whips out for her girls, but for now I'll stick to using her fabric in my scrapbooks. :)



Also, it makes me happy that Scrap Etc loves my blog readers as much as I do and want to send one of their killer kits to a lucky reader's doorstep!! But the question is what do you have to do to win one? :) How about leave me a comment about something you're anticipating about Fall. While you're thinking click on their blog and check out the awesome examples they've made with it!
I wish I could attend their Wrapper's Delight but I will for sure be at their Spring event! Then I can hang out with my friend Gretchen & she can show me why she loves the South so much!! What are grits anyway? :)

For the fall I'm looking forward going to sea world here in orlando for their halloween celebration. They really focus on the kids and have singers that come each weekend and perform. Since I live in fl we really don't get fall tell much later but nice cool days is something else that I'm looking forward too.

The Design Experiment said...

I love EVERYTHING about fall! But living in WA state, the best part is the crisp weather and the leaves changing on all the trees!!!

Fall is my absolute fav time of year! I'm looking forward to capturing all the great colors through the eye of my camera. I've had my DSLR for two years now and just really learned how to use it! :shock:

I'm also looking forward to taking family hikes. For some reason we only really do that in the fall. Weird! Oh and I can't wait to break out my big fluffy sweaters!!! LOL

Thanks for the chance to win! Have a blessed weekend!

justynapalasiewicz said...

Every fall, I look forward to the following:

-the smell of new crayons, all beautifully lined up in their box (even if I don't really buy crayons for myself anymore...sadness)

-the smell of leaves burning. Where I come from, everyone burns their raked up leaves, and it's something that makes me feel "at home"

-wearing a pair of boots from my massive collection. You can never have too many pairs of boots.

-the beautiful colors of the changing foliage...the purples, the reds, the yellows.

-Halloween! One of my absolute favorite holidays. I just adore giving trick-or-treaters their candy!

-and finally, in two years time, my wedding in October. It's going to be big and Polish and loud and I wouldn't have it any other way :-)


The shirt is adorable! I love seeing what you come up with...it always inspires me to get out and create, create, create!

xxx

PS. The kit looks super-fun! Love the colors!

Jingle said...

Avery's T is adorable! What am I anticipating about fall...hmmm....NEW BOOTS! Yup! My husband found a couple of great pairs for me already, so hopefully I will get to buy one of them soon! It's the best part...Straight from sandals to boots! My favorites!!!

Musicmom-Amy said...

I have the greatest pictures of my family at this place http://www.birchbay.net/

Simply, jeans & sweater weather.

Be still, my beating heart!

Shelleycee said...

What is NOT to look forward to?! Fall is my absolute fave!! Halloween, caramel apples, pumpkins, pumpkin pie, back to schoo, football, hockey and of course, the most anticipated of all...tada..my 38th birthday on October 7th!!!!

tessa said...

I hope fall leaves me with many beautifull photos, and much scrappytime..and a clean house.. just need to learn how to combine these.. *lol*

Kathy said...

I love Fall because we are planning to take family pictures with all of the beautiful fall colors. I think anyone can look amazing with some fall foliage behind them.

And of course, my Brother's long awaited wedding in October!!!
The T is adorable!! Great kit too!!

Tonya said...

Happy Fall from Nebraska! Looking forward to picking pumpkins, watching colorful leaves fall, and drinking hot cocoa.

Liana said...

The colors mostly. Fires in the fireplace, crackling away. Snow on the hills and the holidays! Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! (I'm beginning to sound like the Sound of Music...lol)

Jamie said...

Fav things about fall: sweaters, spiced cider, finding the perfect pumpkin, cool nights, beautiful leaves.

The t-shirt is adorable. Your creativity (and time for it) seem limitless. If you tell me that you make dinner every night and your house is spotless, I'm gonna see green! :)

DeAnne said...

Hi Liz,

I LOVE fall...I love the sound of the leave under my feet, the smell of the crisp air and the shorting of the days.

I am also sorry for the loss of your uncle. Your entire family has been included in our prayers.

Thanks,
De Anne

Libby said...

The smells of fall make my heart race. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, spice cake, roasted squash with brown sugar, cinnamon, caramel apples! Mmmmm! Pulling out all the cute sweaters I forgot I had and getting my feet back in shape, as they're chafed from going barefoot all summer with the kids :) The crispness of the morning air is also nice.

robynbum said...

I love reading your blog! You have a beautiful family. Thanks for all the great scrapbooking inspiration!

Fall....I love this time of year. Raking leaves and watching the girls jump in them, the Georgia Fair, Halloween, and the many Fall Festivals. Our temperature this morning when our oldest went out to catch the bus was 65 degrees. Almost jacket weather! When our youngest and I walked out to go to Preschool this morning she said "It is so nice out here, Mom!" Maybe we will have an early fall for us!

Anonymous said...

I absolutely love the color of all the leaves in fall, although that means the snow will start falling, but..... the colors are worth it!
My hubby and I are heading to Vegas at the end of November, so very much anticipated!!!!!!

Jessica Kolb Munk said...

I love rolling down the windows in my car during the day and feeling the warm sun and cool air. Watching "Friends" reruns on DVD, shopping for fall clothes for my kids, and all things pumpkins!

Fall is my favorite season by far! I love everything about it, but this fall I am looking forward to taking our 3 yr. old on a train ride out to the pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins. He's going to LOVE it!

Thanks,

Thanks for the giveaway.

Chrissiesz said...

Oh Autumn! One of my faves! I am looking forward to warm fires in our fireplace-wood was delivered today! All the fantastic holidays! Family gatherings and the anticipation of a new, wrinkly, snuggly, baby boy who is starting to whallop my in the ribs right now! Oh Liz, I really wish you'd teach me your secret to finding time to do all these cute little projects!! I so envy you-I'm buried in a laundry pile 6ft. by
4ft. tall as of right now! Please pick me so I have an excuse....please,please,please!!!

Leah said...

Love, love this store! I'm lucky enough to live about 2 hours away and try to make it down to SE a couple times a year.
Fall.... love when it gets a little cooler and I can wear my Alabama sweatshirts! Roll Tide!

junebug said...

Cute. Thanks for sharing!
Definitely carving pumpkins and pumpkin pie for me.

Valerie said...

I love reading about everyones Falls. They sound idyllic. Sadly where I live we have no trees (too cold and exposed to wind) so no beautiful foliage. Not my favourite season (let's hear it for Summer!) BUT this year we are heading to Florida to enjoy a Disney Halloween. Definitely the best thing happening this Fall (or Autumn as we in Scotland would say!)x

The Boys Mommy said...

I'm looking forward to visiting all the wonderful pumpkin patches...I think last year we went to 3 different ones and had a great time!

Karin said...

Looking forward to crock pot meals, soup, sweaters, time to scrap and not feel guilty about not being outside. haha.

Erin said...

I cannot wait to make the trip to Waterton Lakes National Park in a few weeks to take pictures of the changing leaves. I also miss cozy sweaters, comfy flats and sitting down with a Pumpkin Spice Latte at my local Starbucks planning out my next crafty projects. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Erin Whelan
PS I know you are probably getting a bunch of HOW-TO questions about Avery's cute applique t-shirt. How do you do it?

Brooke said...

Tell me if you figure out what grits are. I know I like to eat them with fried eggs on top. . . but I don't know what they are!

I am looking forward to cooking my first thanksgiving dinner. Since I don't want to travel with two young children back to family, I am having the family come to us. YEAH! I love hosting parties, and I love to cook. Win win for me!!

Keri Piercy said...

1. Enjoying the cooler weather and some much-needed indoor snuggle time with my 4-year old girl-boy twins.
2. Spending time in my "scrappy cat" room to preserve awesome memories of my kids who are growing up at the speed of light.
3. Learning how to sew (I just bought a machine and can't wait to play with it!).
4. Reading, reading, reading!! (Fall weather is perfect snuggle-up-with-a-good-book-time.)
5. Getting back to church and reconnected with God and my spirituality. That is what makes me me.
6. Yummy food and comfy clothes.
7. The Office and 30 Rock! (and the full Thursday night NBC line up.) Countdown . . . 21 days :o)

Jeannie said...

I'm looking most forward to the weather changing and the crisp cool fall air and also all the beautiful changes that take place in nature... the leaves changing. I could go on, but I'll stop there! I love fall!! :)

min said...

It looks so fun! I love fresh stuff...
I am looking forward to fall for our annual family portrait... we love to take it outdoors with nature as our colorful backdrop. This year, instead of a baby bump, we'll sport yet another girl in the sitting!

Savitri said...

Gorgeous kit! Hmmm... my fall...

1. Taking pictures of dd with all fall colors and fall clothes. I love fall pics!
2. The nice fall air and not have to worry about tornadoes as much (don't like spring for that!)
3. Me wearing nicer clothes. I hate dressing up in the summer time for work.
4. Hot cocoa and hot tea!

Reina said...

Cute shirt! I am looking forward to NOT being pregnant and finally holding my little man! Then have three little ones to kiss all over all day! It's going to be GREAT

Brooke said...

A's tee is adorable, I have been anxious for fall since spring finished up...I love fall food, soups and stews, warm bread. I also am so ready to put out fall decorations, there is something so incredibly welcoming about fall decor....deep vibrant colors, inviting smells, pumpkin, cinnamon, spices...favorite season.

LillyBugSkye said...

Adorable T.
Love the fabric. I'm still learning to sew appliques. My seams are NEVER straight. Advice???
Most looking forward to my two year old Trick or Treating!! I think she is going to be Minnie Mouse this year, with shinny shoes from Taget.. of course!!!

julie.schellin said...

I love autumn, and I am looking foward to several activities we do annually: a visit to the pumpkin patch, farmer's market and petting zoo; Halloween(my kids love to dress up...to receive candy at the same time is heaven); and Thanksgiving!

Carla R said...

I'm looking forward to being able to go with my kids to the pumpkin patch. The last 2 years I've been working on that day so their grandparents took them. This year, I'm going to schedule our visit even if it means we have to go twice! I can't miss taking those pictures for a third year!

Devonne said...

Hello,
I am so looking forward to cooler weather. I am so over the 100 + and running the air conditioner 24/7. I also love going to the pumpking patch and watching my children dress up for halloween.
P.S. That tee is so stinking cute.

I'm looking forward to taking our son to his first OU football game together. I love fall for so many reasons...I think mostly because it's the kick off for all the holiday seasons ahead. :) Happy Fall to you girlie!

It's my favorite time of year. The temperature and being able to wear jeans. I'm sooo tired of 90 degree weather here in NC.

Amy said...

Love the shirt- sooo adorable!

Fall,I love fall! Looking forward to seeing pictures of the beautiful changing leaves from the fam in Utah. Florida doesn't offer a whole lot of color changes, but I am so looking forward to being able to put on my favorite cozy hoodie! Halloween and my cute nieces in their costumes, Thanksgiving with the family, and cool breeze.

Awesome giveaway, keeping my fingers crossed!

hanna l said...

I absolutely love the crisp wind and having all of my family over for a Thanksgiving feast.

I absolutely LOVE the fall. I am mostly looking forward to cooler days (it's still 100+ around here). But I also love the shorter days, good things to watch on tv, yummy soups, stews, and chilis, and fall colors. I can't wait!

Melissa said...

I'm looking forward to walks along the river with the leaves turning colors and having all the birds return. I love watching the Canadian geese flying through the air above. Fall is also a time of reorganizing for me. A chance for new beginnings before the holidays are here.

latte_grande said...

Hmmm...grits. I'm not sure exactly, but I think you just take some corn, put it in a pot and boil it into a soggy, tasteless glop. If you want it to taste like something, you have to add syrup or salt or butter, etc. You can try it if you want, but don't say I didn't warn you! lol
Ah, I'm really looking forward to long-sleeves and hoodies! I have a lot of really cute fall clothes that I'm ready to wear. I'm ready for bonfires and Halloween, too!! :)

Toni said...

I love looking forward to picking out mums, cornstalks and pumpkins with my little boys and hubby. Our baby will be big enough this year to toddle around while we stuff our scarecrow, which will make for some fun family pics! We live in Missouri, so the cooler weather is such a treat from our sauna like humidity of summer...oooh, and the leaves turning..okay, I could go on and on!

dawn said...

I am soooo looking forward to it not being above 100 anymore!!

I love AZ but summer really needs to end now.. :)

Darlene said...

Fall Anticipations:
1.We live in the Dominican Republic, so the Rain! I love the rain!! Puddle splashing and rainbow watching with my 2.5yr old daughter.
2.My anniversary with the man of my dreams...hopefully a romantic rainy day as well.
3.Organize my home crafting office during those rainy days.
4.Then...split half of it with Lola so she can learn to craft along side me.
5.My birthday...
6.I anticipate it will be difficult to explain to Lola that we have to carve a watermelon instead of a pumpkin. She still has no idea where she lives :)

Fall! can't wait to get all my pumpkins and corn stalks from my garden and decorate my veranda, sidewalk and yard!!!! love the colors, smells...everything about FALL!

KellyLynnsGirls said...

Fall is my most favorite season of all! I look forward to the crispness in the air, the colors all around...and most of all heading up our beautiful canyons here in Utah (especially American Fork canyon)...and taking lots of fun photos for me to scrapbook! It is also my favorite season to scrap...the colors of paper are amazing!

Callista said...

I Love fall, the flowers, the colors, the coolness in the air. But what even makes it better is that our anniversary is in the fall, October, and my wonderful hubby and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year which I am soo looking forward to and then afterwards I can't wait to scrap the pics of us from our anniversary weekend away followed by our family celebration.

Taraleigh said...

Autumn is almost here and its time to break out the boots, the blankets, and fresh baked pumpkin everything (cookies, bread, pie...you name it!) I'm looking forward to seeing the crisp fallen leaves on the ground everywhere and hearing them cruch under my feet. Most of all I am in great anticipation of welcoming my first child into the world (baby Lillian, due November 2nd.)

I cannot wait for the fall colors and the crisp weather. I love so many things about the fall - pulling out those warm sweaters, doing some extra snuggling under the covers on cold nights. It's all good.

waldenbunch said...

I am so looking forward to the cooler weather and new fall clothes!

rosi81 said...

This fall will bring something special to our home - a new baby! I'm due to have our 2nd little boy on Oct. 7. :)

sasha said...

ooooh! My absolute FAVORITE time of year! It'll be my baby boy's first real pumpkin gathering trip, and we all get to cozy up in sweaters, jackets, scarves and gloves and hats. Yummy hot spiced apple cider, pumpkin pie, cold air, leaves falling and blowing around. Kids excited for trick or treating. The beginning of the "holiday season". The smell of cinnamon. But most of all, I'm looking forward to happy, cozy and warm time with the family. I could go on and on! Like I said, I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!!!!!!!

Amy from Colorado said...

Can you think of anything that isn't wonderful about the fall? I love it all but our family especially looks forward to all the birthdays. Everyone in our family has a fall birthday so it is one big party!

I'm looking forward to going to the pumpkni patch, like we do every year, but this time with 2 boys instead of just one!! And of course snapping away with my camera the whole time :)

Susi said...

All the beautiful colors-apple orchard & pumpkin patch with the grandkids-spiced cider-carmel apples-homemade apple pie. I could name plenty more as fall is my favorite season.

Anne said...

Ah, Fall ... the leaves, colors, and warm cozy jackets!

I love seeing my kiddos all bundled up!

Thanks for a great give-away! Have a great weekend!

Marie said...

Wow! You just said my thing...grits! I went on my mission to the South and fell in love with grits! They are my most favorite thing to eat when there is a nip in the air in the morning.

They are a lot like Cream of Wheat, but they are made of corn and not as fine. Very good with butter and salt, cheese, or an egg on top! Yummo!

Jenn said...

I'm looking forward to the pumpkin patch, long-sleeved cozy sweaters, and putting up my harvest decorations around the house...so fun!

~Q~ said...

the colors of fall as they appear across the mountains, the nip in the air, the smell of burning leaves and fireplaces, sleeping with the window open at night but being warm and cozy under a down comforter.

megan said...

Oh I just love fall!!! I am looking forward to so much about this season, the changing of the leaves, cool crisp mornings, candles, days where I just stay inside all day and having my baby boy!!!

Diana said...

Halloween, pumpkins, costumes, family gatherings, and fun. I miss that fall smell.....

I'm anticipating the soothing chill of the early morning, followed by afternoons where traces of summer heat still warm up the seats of my car. Thats early fall in Georgia for you:) And as the fall days progress, I can't help but wish for the yummy smells of sweet treats and the vibrant colors that wait outside my kitchen window. I just love the refreshment that each new season brings...especially fall!

What do I love about fall? High school soccer!!! Whoo hoo!!! There is such a proud moment when your baby girl scores a goal for her team, and you feel like you almost scored too!

Andrea said...

I know you live in California too, so you will understand this one with the weather the last two days. I am sooooo looking forward to cooler weather. 95 degrees is not fall weather. I am also looking forward to the leaves on the trees changing colors. I am also looking forward to scrapping with my new supplies I could win ....{{wink, wink}}

Mharmsma said...

I love fall... the crisp freshness of winter, the sunniness of summer, the awe of nature that comes in spring... all combined into one autumny package. I'm looking forward to crunching leaves with my munchkins and planting bulbs in my garden, little presents for next spring ;)

paperfairy said...

I'm looking forward to playing in the leaves with my niece and nephews - going for weekend hikes with my hubby and watching the leaves change colours. I'm also excited about wearing my cute new warm fall sweaters while huddled around the last of this year's campfires...

Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and watching all the kiddos trying to pick up pumpkins that weigh more than they do!

I look forward to wearing cozy sweaters, and just feeling the calm, peaceful feeling outside when the leaves start to fall.

Deanna said...

Elizabeth,
I'm so sad you won't be at Wrapper's Delight. I've heard what a cool chick you are from Gretchen. oh well, maybe next time!

What do I love about Fall? Everything! But especially some good ol college football on a clear crisp Fall day! Those days are always the best!

Fall is my favorite. One of the few things that I look forward to the most is going to my grandma's cabin up in the mountains where it is practically heaven. There I will be tying a quilt outside in the crisp fall air under the yellow leaves of the aspen trees. All while my soul is being uplifted by listening to General Conference on the radio.

Thanks

I live in Texas so we don't have many days of cool weather, but I still anticipate... Spiced Pumpkin candles, Aspen Mulling Spices, crisp air, changing leaves, pumpkins, trick or treat, football, and open windows!!! Happy fall, ya'll!

City Mouse said...

Fall in Texas means football and Friday night lights!! :-) In fact, I'm headed to the game in one hour! Thanks for a shot at the giveaway - and I LOVE that t-shirt!

kim a. said...

I am looking forward to crisp fall mornings (great excuse to stay in my PJ's a little longer), picking out and carving pumpkins, and decorating for Halloween!

kaly said...

I'm from Canada, so fall usually means it starts getting cold, which most years depresses me. But Nothing can beat the fall colors (which we are starting to see now *sigh*), and most of all, that wonderful fresh smell in the crisp air. ...When I think of that, it cheers me up and gives me courage for the onset of winter.

Heather said...

I can't wait for the leaves to change, to decorate my house, to get mochas (and it actually be cold out, our pumpkin patch trip.

*Ooh this is totally giving me a fall love layout idea.

Ps. love the tshirt.

Meredith said...

Laura said...

What isn't there to love about Fall? It is my favorite season- sweatshirt weather, backyard campfires, mums and pumpkins and Halloween. Our house is the hit of the neighborhood for trick-or-treating because we give out grilled hot dogs and warm apple cider. The crowd gets bigger every year.

x said...

I'm looking to our fall wedding, at home surrounded by our closest family and friends, followed by a wonderful honeymoon in NYC. Ah, NY in the fall, I can't wait!

Heather said...

I love everything fall, but I cannot wait to pick apples and make allkinds of delicious goodies with them!

What do I love about fall?

Pumpkin doughnuts...... and the end of harvest when I get my husband back (he's a farmer).

Texas Brightmans said...

I live in Houston so I am looking forward to the temperature being in the 80's instead of high 90's. Sad isn't it? But what can you do but stay inside and scrapbook!!!

justin and shara said...

I am so excited for my Granpa's wedding. My grandmother passed away almost 5 years ago and he reunited with a friend of hers from high school and they completely hit it off. I am also excited to get amazing Fall pictures of my family at the wedding.

Dorans said...

I can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch with my kids, and oh the pictures I will take (and scrap). And don't forget the Bath and Bodyworks pumpkin bath soaps!

What I love most about fall is the way my house feels. More than any other time of year, my house feels most cozy and homey in the fall. I love all of my fall decorations and can't wait to get them all out soon!

Deanna said...

I'm most looking forward to taking my little munchkin to a pumpkin patch to have fun and get cute pictures! This will be our first year.

Thing number one thing I am looking forward to about fall is hands down the cooler weather. It has been over 100 here all week and well that's just plain HOT! This kit would be fun to play with as it starts to cool off. (Hopefully that is soon!)

Shad said...

I'm looking forward to taking my new son and my toddler daughter to the pumpkin patch. I've completed one knitted pumpkin hat and have one more to knit. I'm ready to try to get that perfect snapshot!

Kacey Elliott said...

Oh how I love everything about Fall. Every year I look forward to it. I love the smell of wood burning stoves and fireplaces burning, the colors of the leaves, and the cooler/crisper/fresher air that comes along with it. I also love all of the fun Fall things we get to do like pumpkin patches, hayrides, corn maizes, Halloween, and to be quite honest - no more weeding the garden (I hate weeding!).

Ashley said...

I'm looking forward to spending a week in New York with my husband and cont. training for my marathon through the fall leaves of Central Park!

Karen said...

Krista said...

I'm looking forward to fall colors and fall walks. I love fall. it's my favorite time of year-and one of my fav to photograph. i just love the leaves-the crunching, the kicking, everything about them!

Liz Butler said...

Being from Memphis I am definitely looking forward to cooler days,... oh, and eating comfort food ~ YUM!

Baute Family said...

As a kid in Michigan I looked foward to making those huge piles of leaves,jumping in them and hiding from my mom.....now as a Californian I look foward to driving through the mountains behind our house and take in the sea of colors as the trees change ever so slightly.

Sara said...

I just sold my business of 4 years (this week) so i'm anticipating spending loads of free time with my 2 boys, downshifting a ton and remembering what is most important in life and what we take for granted daily. I'm also hoping for some time to get re-acquainted with my sewing machine and scrap-room and remember what my passion was before it became my business.
