The hall was a buzz with women , some enjoying a lovely cup of tea and a light lunch and the rest viewing or maybe drooling over the gorgeous work on display. I'll just give you a little overview of some of the work , this is a small hall but they do pack quite a few quilts in as well as a table selling lovely runners , bags etc.
One thing to note is most of these quilts are hand quilted and the stitches are amazingly small !
A lovely string quilt and to the left of that is a unique rag quilt with some lovely applique , loved that one.
A couple of traditional quilts ,the card trick and a sampler .
I know this is getting photo heavy but I really want to share a couple of photos I took yesterday on a little adventure to Big Island , I love this Island and it could possibly have something to do with the fact my first date with Bill was sort of here .Do you want to buy an Island , I just happen to know where there is one for sale :-)
This is up the road a piece and I just had to take a picture of the wild rose bushes that are starting to turn , and as you can see the skies have cleared a bit too .
This is at the other end of the island , it is a marshy area and the different grasses have started to turn plus there are some rose bushes here that are turning so I just liked the contrast of colors in the land , not sure you can see that so well in the photo but in person it is so pretty .
And lastly I want to share these two pictures of wild flowers that as a child I would pick for my Mom and bring them home to her , so proud of them and she was always more than willing to place them in a vase and put them on the window sill to enjoy , funny how those things mean so much to me even today, so what flowers did I pick , well these first little yellow flowers always reminded me of butter they are such a lovely shade of yellow ,no idea of what they are but still love them
and finally these little asters I believe they are , I am not up on the names of the wildflowers I just love them for their beauty.
I hope I have not bored you with all these photos , thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy your day ,it is a beautiful sunny day here today and summer has finally arrived in the Fall.
