Day 244 of 366

There is a new shop opening nearby.  
I drove by today to see if there was a sign with the opening date on it.
Instead, I found the shop was open!
I found these goodies inside.

Home again, home again.
No matter how exciting the adventure, it is always good to be home again.

Time.  It marches on.
Second picture is from outside the hotel.
Country flags.  
I see mine.  Do you see yours?
If you do, let me know!

I had to run an errand downtown today.
I took the opportunity to take pictures.
I like this one a lot.

Day 230 of 366

Reflections.
If you look closely you can see a reflection of me
taking a picture of the side mirror of the car
in which there is a reflection of the clouds and the car
on which there is a second reflection of the clouds.

Day 228 of 366

The quilt that hangs in the hall took a trip outside for a photo shoot.
This is a friendship exchange quilt. 
 Two friends and I each made 3 each of 24 blocks and then exchanged
so each of us ended up with 72 different blocks.
This is my quilt made from those blocks.

Day 227 of 366

This is a small antique quilt I purchased.
I can't really remember where I got it but I'm sure I got a good price on it.
A closer look will show you why.  (Click on the picture for a larger image.)
I love the color and pattern though.  It may be worth reproducing with current fabrics.

Day 225 of 366

I had a tough time getting a good shot today,
so while watching the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics
I took a shot of my TV screen.

Day 224 of 366

Classic BLT...with a twist.
What is the twist?

Edit:  Yes, peanut butter instead of mayo.  If you've never tried this, you should.  Yummy!

Day 223 of 366

Today was a fabric dyeing day.  These are the fabric dyeing vats.
I came.  I saw.  I did not dye fabric.
Those who did made some beautiful pieces.
Little Lady and I worked on my 36-patch blocks.

Day 222 of 366

I am inspired by Rachel D.'s train station pictures like this one.
Here is my version of a train picture.
This is known here as the "Fair Train." It only runs for a couple weeks each year.
It runs an 11 mile route transporting people to and from the State Fair.
Maybe we'll ride it this year.

Day 220 of 366

A friend found this crocheted blanket at Goodwill.
I love the colors and their combinations.
I think it will make a great palette for a quilt.

Day 218 of 366

M takes a moment to look away from one piece of technology
for a quick glance at another.

Day 216 of 366

On the floor at Little E's house.
I didn't pick it up.
I figure she could use the good luck (due in 5 days) more than I could.

Day 214 of 366

Some wonderful things are growing in Big D and R's garden.
If I remember correctly, this will become a cantaloupe.
Can you tell I'm not much of a gardener?
