I finished the applique for Block 6 of Blackbird Designs "Ravens" quilt. It was a much easier block than Block 5 (see previous post). I've decided to do Block 2 next (another complicated one). The fabric for the wing has the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe written all over it.
Wouldn't it look terrific in those colors. It's a free pattern on their site.
Two friends and I went to Midway yesterday to stop at the Christmas store - Kringles.
It's not at the peak of autumn color yet but the red scattered over the mountains was sure pretty.
Kringles is a sweet store. I should have taken more pictures. Isn't that hydrangea pretty with it's pink hue.
After about 18 texts back and forth between my son and I - I bought this little gnome snow globe for him. It has rainbow glitter for the snow.
At another store my friend modeled this Cleopatra-like necklace pillow. There were earrings to match - ha!
After Kringles and the pillow store the skies opened up and we really got rained on. We haven't had much rain in the valley this summer (Midway is up in the mountains) so the big drops of cold water felt good. I had on sandals and didn't feel the cold till much later when the rain had stopped.
There were a lot of cute little houses in the small town with gingerbread trim. Fun to see.
We ended up eating lunch at a Mexican restaurant that was really slow but the food was sure good. We were in no hurry and enjoyed just visiting and some new food items.
I should have taken more picture but the restaurant was dark and then I forgot about it.
It was a lot of fun being together and taking some time away.
