A Great Find

It's a beautiful fall day in Minnesota!  I was up early this morning and picked tomatoes and the last of our cucumbers in the garden.  I made creamed cucumbers and used the tomatoes to make two batches of salsa.

We went to church and stayed for dinner - it was our church's fall festival today.  Had a delicious chicken dinner followed by some bingo and a little shopping.  I enjoy checking out the craft items that have been made by the church ladies.  I was lucky to find this great quilt made out of scrap fabrics - a scrappy quilt!  It is more than generously sized and will work on the twin sized bed in our extra bedroom.



The woman that made the quilt was there; it was great meeting the person that put so much time and talent into making this beautiful quilt!

I also want to share with you a little gift I received yesterday.  My friend Judy brought this cute little scissor fob for me.  The witch is from a Plum Street Samplers design.  Isn't she cute?  (The fabric in the background is the backside of the quilt above.)


And some beautiful pins for my now finished Victoria Sampler project.  Hope you can pick them out in the photo (not such a good photo!)  Thanks Judy!


Well that's all I've got for you today!  I'm going to go stitch and maybe watch a little football!  Thanks for stopping by.
