Farmers Market

Yesterday I threw caution and my to mend pile to the winds and started a new quit! Nothing beats the February blahs like cutting up a bunch of perfectly good fabric right?
I had this big stash of fruit and veggie fabrics so I combined them with some wood grain and basket weave fabric and I'm calling it Farmers Market.
All day I was thinking, what will I do with this one??? I did a lot of blocks, and I love how vibrant they are, but what am I going to do with it????
Well once they were all pressed and trimmed I got them up on the design wall and it was so nice and bright that I invited the big guy in to see. His gut reaction?
"I love that!!! can that be ours?"
Really? uh, okay! cool! He even loved the name I picked. Then he asked if I was going to back it with meat and sausage fabric!

Wintry Weekend at St. Anthonys

Come take a walk with me in the wintry woods at St. Anthony's....

If we are quiet we can hear the water running under the ice....

The frost and snow look just like lace on the frozen river

So fresh and clear.............

Remember sucking on icicles when you were a kid? Mother always told me how dirty they were from all the stuff running off the roof, but they sure did taste good to me!
