On Saturday on our drive over to Batesville to see Marshall Dry Goods Store – (see yesterdays post) we saw some pretty fall color. Not as beautiful as it can be – we have had a lot of dry weather over in that part of the state.
The above photo I took at a little rest area that we spotted along the way.
This photo is taken in the town of Mountain View. After we left Batesville we took a round about way home stopping here in Mountain View. A nice little town – almost always has some music going on. There are groups of people who just gather to play their guitars and fiddles.
A variety of people gather to listen.
There was a small quilt shop here in the old downtown, I wandered in but I didn’t really see all that much – it was a small store and I had just bought fabric and wasn’t looking for more.
There were cute displays of fall and Halloween around the town. I hope our fall colors will improve over the next week or two and I will post more then.
Here is another easy triangle that I made last night:
Now if they could all be as easy as this one was! I think it took all of 45 minutes to hand piece. I have the next pattern ready to go and I think it has about 30 pieces in it. I am part way done with my Star Crazy October blocks. I messed up somewhere in the cutting of the Irish Chain blocks and they are not coming together right – today I need to look things over and re-measure pieces. Something is wrong somewhere!! I might have to totally cut these blocks out over again and start fresh – sometimes it is not worth it to rip – we are talking 1 1/2 inch pieces!! I have plenty of scraps to re-do this mess.
