Smells of Fall

Originally uploaded by bean counting knitter
Yesterday I had a chance to sit among the falling leaves of fall and it was awesome. Walking to my perfect perch I smelled something I haven't smelled in a very long time. Probably since I lived in New York if my memory serves me right.

I smelled the smell of decaying leaves. If you haven't smelled this then you are probably thinking "ewwww". Well let me tell you something that smell is just one of the things I miss about New York, especially upstate New York, falls.

Besides the spectacular colors that you just don't get anywhere else there is the smell of fall. That smell of decaying leaves. It is pungent and earthy. Oh how I have missed that smell.

It was funny. I found these two trees in the middle of a local park in central Ohio yesterday. The changing colors were amazing and the inspiration of my perching point. It was odd because all the other trees around these two were still green. It was like NY came to me in Ohio with the colors and smells.

It made me homesick....

Mosaic Gangbusters?

Back in September I got a wild hair to try some colorwork. I started out like gangbusters. Well OK not gangbusters but I was all fired up. I selected Mosaic Squares: A Compilation by Barbara G. Walker. I didn't even make it through one square. I think I bit off way more than I ever care to chew here. UGH!

I am just not feeling the love with this project and I think it is going to be frogged.
