Last Wednesday Karl and I and "the girl" went for a little drive out into the country side looking for fall colours. They weren't easy to find and we were a bit disappointed. Fall is coming late to Ontario this year. The temps are still nice and warm and we sort of hope it lasts for awhile.
The best photo I took was on the grounds of the
Wellington County Museum in Fergus. Karl and I drove up there a couple of years ago for a Threadworks display and I hope to drag one of my friends up there soon to see their new display of log cabin quilts. Then we could find a quilt shop or two and buy or not!
As we drove along I saw a farmer out in his field cutting his corn crop. There were two tractors out in the field ..... this one and one following along behind.
Take a look at the back tire on the wagon. See him there? This dog must have been pooped that night. He followed that wagon the whole row and it was a long one. I bet he stayed with them until the work was done. Old faithful!
We stopped at this little store in Neustadt. A little village that not only had this store that had apples to sell by the half and full bushels, apple pies hot from the oven --there was also a quilt shop!!! Karl hit the brakes when I said quilt shop and I went in and had a lovely chat with the owner while I picked up four pieces of fabric.
The windows on the side of the store have been painted. Take a look at these. They seemed to fit right in to what we had done that day.
Oh, would you like to see what I bought? The little shop is called the Cosy Nook and its on Jacob Street. No website I'm afraid ... just a delightful little shop you could browse in for awhile.
I have plans for them. The reddish one is going on the back of a wall hanging that is headed to Haiti, the one next to it is for a fall wallhanging that came in a kit that I just bought and the white and blue are for those snowflake ones. Nothing purchased on impulse for a change.
