The weather has made a distinct change here in the Pac NW lately and fall is suddenly upon us. I've been doing a lot of thinking the past few weeks about what make this season so great and also about why I like cloudy, mostly-overcast days so much--especially when so many folks here in the city wish the summer and sun would never end. ;) So when Chrissy of Sew Lux asked me recently if I would like to contribute a selection of prints to her new Curated Collections Bundles I was thinking all about fall, especially fall here in rainy Seattle. Here is a little more about my inspiration for my Partly Cloudy bundle:
I live really close to the beach, but I actually hardly go there during the summer since it's often so packed in the warmer months. But once it starts to get cooler and more overcast again during the fall, it's the perfect time to head down. :) On a typical early fall day you can catch California sea lions fishing in the water, sea birds riding the air currents, and if you are really lucky maybe even a pod of orcas or dolphins. This bundle has a nautical feel to me and really captures that sense of sunlight breaking through clouds on a breezy fall day.
For me, these prints have just the right mix of grays and blues spiked with a few warm yellows to feel like a day at the beach in October. I hope to get down to the water again this weekend and take some photos of a few finished projects while also enjoying the weather,
even especially if it rains. :)
I also wanted to note that in this post I have included a couple affiliate links. I do receive small rewards when my readers shop through my affiliate links, which in turns helps to support the blog and fund giveaways and other fun events. Sew Lux is a store that I truly love to shop with and I am very happy to support such a wonderful, family-run business!
