Joining the Piggy Bank Savings Challenge again.

Just a big can from peanuts from Costco, and some strips of orange that were hanging around last year, and voila! you have a piggy bank for THE Challenge over at Val's blog. Try it, you'll like it. I didn't save all that much last year, as you know.  But it did get me three lovely yards of batik at the Sisters Quilt Show this past Saturday.  Every little bit helps.

Stop by here tomorrow when I'll continue to show the show and the fabric.


As Promised, More of Sisters Quilt Show

There are lots of little shops in Sisters. This stained glass was in an art gallery. Thought my Sis would enjoy this one.

 In the below picture: this quilt is in 3 pieces... and
those are 3D flames... see the close-up below.

 This particular part of the crowd was out behind the Stitchin' Post (quilt store).  I got 3 pieces of batik there. You can see the fabric tomorrow if you tune in.

Here is the front of the store from an angle... Here's where Sisters show started.

 Another little boutique store sells these rusty animals. Just down the highway there are 6 horses, 2 cowboys on horses and 2 dogs. In CA there's  a field along Highway 50 that shows a fox being chased by bunnies and all manner of other little creatures. I've always loved that spot.

 I couldn't get any closer to this one... it had a steady set of admirers. See the hubby on the extreme left? That's a very unusual spot for him. LOL

This one needed a picture - and a close up of his eye and pretty purple beak, below.
 Isn't the quilting gorgeous, too. The squares are 2" finished. (The eye was on 5 different squares.. The highlight on the eye is part of that particular fabric - just a polka dot.)
Come back tomorrow for the rest of the pictures. I've gotta get to my packing again.

Hugs and Happy Sunday.
