One of the fun things about living in a small town... you get quaint little Carnivals that come in once a year. You just don't see them this small anymore!
But how cute is that? It reminds me of when our boys were pre-teen age and we took them to the big Fresno Fair (nearest large town to us). We dipped into the large container of "spare change" & they filled up their pockets and off we went. It of course made me a wreck... so easy to loose someone in large crowds... I kept counting heads... 1, 2, 3... 4, 5. Ok, breathe. 1, 2, 3,4... where is 5? ... ok, 5, breathe.
Anyway, they were on one of those large basket rides that spin. It stops to let more kids on, starts, stops... the boys are at the top... and then all of a sudden all you can hear is tink, tink, clang, tink. They are up there, upside down and their pockets of change are emptying out... it was remaining money... everywhere!
Speaking of spinning things... here are my Hex-a-gon Along blocks. They are all sewn,
now.. on to the next step!
But I could get diverted... I got my copy of Quilt Sampler!!!
Now that is my idea of fun... perusing the pages, seeing the projects and then
going back over them to read how large each shop is and how many bolts of fabric they have, then I do in depth looks at each of the store samples! Ymmm! Fun!
I never miss an issue and this one has got to be my favorite. Lots of goodness inside!
In Between Stitches in Livermore CA.
And this wonderful little shop, ok, not so little, but has lots of Quilt Soup samples...
including a project by Barbara Jones herself!
Lots of FUN!
