But this one was a lot smaller than VQF. The quilting ladies of the local Congregational church had their fourth show on Saturday and this year I got to it.

The quilts were hung in the church itself and were almost all traditional patterns with both bed-sized quilts and wallhangings plus small things like pillows. I took photos of those that I particularly liked, a couple of which were antique quilts and very lovely.

Christmas is coming!

The quilt show was only the beginning -- DH and I had lunch downtown, then took a look at the sidewalk art show. I had a quick trip to the library and after that we sat in on a discussion about earlier days in Springfield and the many changes that have taken place within the past 60-65 years while enjoying some delicious strawberry shortcake. After that (since it was still early in the afternoon) we drove out of town and explored some of the back roads. Some are uninhabited with nothing but trees and an occasional abandoned stone wall to be seen. On others there are very attractive homes and even still some working farms. Cows and llamas... Haying has been difficult this year because of all the rain we have had, so it seems to be getting done in fits and starts, depending on the weather.

DH thought of going out and about again on Sunday but I told him that one such day was enough for me for a while so we didn't.
