Ah! The joys of autumn...the calendar doesn't say it,
but we in the Pacific NW all know it because the signs are there:
leaves starting to put on their colorful fall finery, pears ripening on countertops,
apples nearing harvest time, rain, autumn flowers like these beautiful crocus...
a quilt + craft show in one of my favorite little towns--Vernonia, Oregon!
BTW, I also found out there is a lot of love there--
in this little church;
because I had the opportunity to see love in action while there...
created by hands that wanted to bless their church home
(and I think) bless those that would come through the doors of the show.
Love that put together an asssortment of birdhouses
(I was sorely tempted to buy the red one; I loved it!),
Love that put together other crafts and Christmas items,
love that did a lot of the things that go to making an event like this an enjoyable one--
things like the great lunch which we were soon to enjoy!
and lunch among the many, many, many quilts.
What could be better?
a warm quilt or comforter at night,
I think I like it:)
Blessings to my 2 'angels' of Vernonia
and blessings to all of you!
Note: If you love quilts (and I do),
if you love crafts (ditto above comment),
if you are hungry for a good lunch
and you like small, mountain valley towns with great parks and more,
you might like to pay a visit to St Mary's Quilt + Craft Show!
You have three more days:)
Here is a link about the show:
Note 2: Should you want to see more of Vernonia---I have quite a few photos from there taken last year. Feel free to use the search feature located in the right sidebar. I will also soon be doing a post on the Blue House Cafe there---awesome Mediterranean food, friendly staff!
