Once I picked my Mum up we again went the round-about way, taking some more back roads to our destination. We came across this group of four Turkey Vultures, sitting around as the air currents weren't ideal for them to get up in the air.
Finally we got to the Country Quilter to check out their annual quilt show. I absolutely love this little exhibit! The Country Quilter is in an old house, and their exhibit is essentially quilts hanging from ropes strung between the trees in the back yard. Its just so lovely (despite the mosquitoes).
This quilt... I AM GOING TO WIN I bought 3 raffle tickets, but the draw isn't until October.
At first I thought this was someones "signature" on the back of a quilt. LOL it was a REAL dragonfly!
Of course the day involved shopping too! I bought these fat quarters, a few are for the finishing on Flip flops and the others I just liked, including one for my dragon stash (what I'm going to do with those dragon fabbies I have no clue). We followed The Country Quilter up with a trip to Quilting Quarters, then Dragon's Liar Beads. Finally we went and had lunch... a very late lunch before I took Mum home. It was a nice crafty day out with my Mum, we haven't done that in ages!
Once I was back home, and since Todd wasn't around I worked on his Christmas stocking. At the moment it doesn't look like much since its just a bunch of outlines. I think on Sunday I'll be able to start working on Santa... its a great stocking, perfect for the fisherman in your life!
I've been meaning to share these... its a graduation gift I got form one of the students graduating next week. He had a lovely note inside the box, his grandmother made all these gorgeous cards! I'll be holding onto these for just the right occasion!
