Fall Has Arrived at Zephyr Point!

by HEIDI EMMETT

My husband and I went for a week of R&R at our favorite place at Lake Tahoe, Cabin A at Zephyr Point. Colors were at their peak. It was a working vacation too. I made a trip to Minden, Nevada while there.  I went to visit Beth at Fabric Chicks. Fabric Chicks was the fabric store we had visit us at the Artistic Alchemy Retreat. What a HUGE, FABULOUS, brick and mortar store she has. 21 minutes from Zephyr Point and a beautiful drive. Check it out. I have exciting news about some of my “Art to Wear” patterns via Beth at Fabric Chicks! More about that in my next post.

I want to show you my last project for Stitch E-Parties via Stitch magazine. What a great run I had with Stitch. This was my 6th and final project for that magazine. Sadly, after the winter issue, Stitch is closing up shop. They were just hitting their stride too. Below are the Marcia Derse prints I used along with the Kaffe shot cotton for the center. This is a two different pieces project. DSC_0293

Below the Summer/Fall leaves  were made into a wall hanging but I like it on my front door to herald the beginning of Fall.

Wow, in a door at the other end of the house it has a stained glass look. leaves 2

I love Marcia Derse fabrics.

My leaves remind me of the beautiful Aspen leaves at Zephyr Point. I need to make a new batch of leaves in these yummy fall colors below.

Working on the set up for my “Summer Fun Leaves” projects. Oh my, I was too busy to clean up my other projects first.

Watching me work on making a flurry of leaves was exhausting for Rubix. leaves Ribix

And there it is, I’m even on the cover for the Stitch Parties, E-projects book. Check it out at F&W.

And here is the 2nd part, a quick and easy leaf centerpiece or hey, it could be a placemat too.Leaves, Summer, Stitch in Vase

A wonderful, much needed storm, came flying through for a few hours while we were there. FYI, in a good year, the water comes to within 3 feet of the little boathouse (on the left).

A view on the side of the road on the Eastern Shore drive of Lake Tahoe. Aspens, rocks, water, three

Turn around and another great view. Beautiful Aspens close up

This golden, glorious view is only a 1/4 mile away from the major casinos. Amazing. We pulled over to the side of the road and click, click, click.

More Aspens in field

Have a wonderful fall weekend, and take time to run through the leaves. Hugs, Heidi

    • Hi Annie, You are too funny! Inside joke everyone. Annie admired my Bernie Mev shoes that I had on. I was able to introduce her to these very comfortable and cool looking shoes and she now follows this blog. Thanks Annie.
