Little sister and I did our Sunday visiting to day---seen these lovely lilies on the way--
and they are actually a deeper color--usually my camera gets the color right--but I know they were much darker red than they look here!!!!
this pot was in front of a business on main street and I thought the leaves looked huge!!!! (but in this picture they look small?????!!!!!!)
At the corner now--
Oh Boy--there is the sign to our two "favorite" shops on this street---( note see all those cars coming into town--this is at the main four corners here in Watkins Glen!!!!
First stop--the Quilt shop---
And on the work table in the classroom we seen this--
Is this not beautiful or what---the strips with the light colored background are somehow done in 3-D---I hope this is to be a class---I will take it for sure!!!!!
Then up the street to the Antique shop--
this place is called "Pigtail Alley" cause that is the name of their place in Bath, NY area!!!! This is where I have gotten all my "new" furniture from--now they think we should stop by every week and see them and say "Hi' and that is OK with us--cause then we get to check out all the new stuff they bring in each week--and yes I am looking at one or two things!!!!!!
then we had pizza for lunch--
then went to our other favorite shop--the Country shop---I was looking for a couple more things there for accents ( doesn't that sound better than saying "nick nacks"??)
for some of my new decorating--couldn't get anything today---have to wait til the first of the month!!!!!!!!!!!!
And this is all I brought home with me today---
Two sale patterns and a spool of thread!!!! the top pattern I got thinking it would work for the "I Spy" exchange I was in last year--but this one calls for a layer cake size---but I think I can still use the idea with my smaller blocks????? The other pattern Little sister and I are looking at for our "bird" quilts---NO we haven't forgotten them--just been busy with other things--but maybe now that we got the pattern we can get them going?????
Only stitching I did was on "Brutus" and of course he insisted I stitch him in first--then the blanket under him--now he has me stitching in his chair---the flowers are last---
Seen these "beauties" on the way home---and this time the color came out good!!!
Well that was our little adventure for today--tomorrow it is back to work day---but I haven't decided on which project yet--probably the binding on State Fair and maybe work on Kelly's quilt along challenge???????
What are you going to work on????????
