Summer travels...

To celebrate Fall's arrival, I will mail this pattern to the first person who email me in the morning.  The pattern is called Gathering Bittersweet.

When quilters travel, they check out quilt stores.  This antelope was in the window of the Quilters Corner in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  This was a pleasant spacious store with the nicest, most accommodating, they had a beautiful clean rest room.  Very important information to file away.

Our next stop was in Kearney, Nebraska.

Great samples and beautiful fabric.

I guess this is what my dilemma is!

I'm sorry this is so blurry, but the sentiment is beautifully clear!

The next stop was in York, Nebraska.  We missed a few stores unfortunately, but when we were passing through their town, it was either too early or too late.

The Quilt Basket had some lovely inspiring samples, and the fabrics to back them up.

We have had glorious gentle rains all week end.  I enjoy rainy days.  I've been sewing, what a surprise! lol.  And napping..:-)
and of course reading.  The weather has prompted me to make soup, so I will sign off here and join my husband for a bowl.
