pumpkin picking

a couple weeks ago we went with some friends to this great farm near us, none such farm. we intended to only go there for the market, which sells delicious meat that is raised across the street. but they had a pumpkin patch so we went there first.
i've never been to one before, it was really cool.

then dave made this killer beef stew for dinner.

quilt photos

a couple of weeks ago i went home to spend the weekend with my family. i brought my quilts because i wanted to get some picture of them with a field background, so my dad found a good spot. it was on PA state game lands (aka hunting land). luckily you aren't allowed to hunt on sundays, so we were safe.

and a special thanks to my dad for his help with holding the quilts!


a few weeks ago we went camping at tobyhanna (again). that place is so great, especially for those with dogs who love to swim.

our camping neighbors had the coolest dog, named lloyd. he was only 8 months old, but gigantic. he was a mix between 3 types of mastiff and a dane. so you can imagine how big he will get. i can't stop thinking about that dog, he was the (second) cutest.

lily of the valley quilt

the lily of the valley quilt is finished, just in time for the clover market tomorrow. stop by anytime from 11-4 if you're in the philadelphia area.
the center is a vintage tea towel and it's bordered by vintage and new fabrics. i really love how it came out.

i quilted around each flower and the bow to make it pop and give it lots of texture. i love how it turned out! if it doens't sell tomorrow, look for it in the brandeye etsy shop.
