I came home with beads, appliques of butterflies, and lace; art tissue papers and books for a quarter each. The sun shone and we enjoyed ourselves. Do these sabra fruit look like a heart to you? It did to me.
The balloonists were out in full force...we saw eight over this field at one time...
The sky looked ominous, like rain, but it cleared up as the day wore on and the sun shone the rest of the weekend.
I thought these spent corn stalks made a beautiful photo.
On Sunday, Hannah suggested that I take my quilted pocketbooks to the Pence Art Gallery in Davis and see if they'd take them in their gift shop. I had six pocketbooks and only one single pocket. So I got busy and made six more single pockets with ribbons to be worn around the neck. I made tags with explanations for each pocket; and a sign to hang from my basket with ideas for how the pocketbooks might be used, including the photo of one four pocket book and the pic of me wearing the single pocket around my neck. I must have put in eight hours easy working on them.
Wish me luck, I am taking them in today. They have a traveling quilt show on exhibit right now through November called 12 Voices and some local quilters art as well. Seems to me these would fit right in. We'll see.
