Autumn Fun

TGIF everyone! What a beautiful late autumn day we've had here in North Little Rock, Arkansas! The temperature hovered around 80°F and the sun was shining on all the pretty colored trees. They say rain and cooler temps are in the forecast and that is fine with me too. I love this time of year!

The Mister and I went to a little quilt show today. It was a small one, but that made it just the right size for me! My feet get too tired and sore from walking at those bigger shows! I took a few photos, but I don't have the right cables to transfer them from camera phone to computer!

They had six vendors. One had the best deal on fabric! I was amazed to find batiks and fossil ferns for $5.65 and $6.65 per yard! Fat Quarters were a buck apiece! I wish his store was closer! I didn't price everyone's fabric there, but did see a lot of $10/yd stuff. I am glad I have a well stocked stash with these prices going up and up on cottons.

In spite of my stash at home, I was coerced into buying a couple fat quarters for an old-fashion styled quilt coming up in a year, a couple yards of a brilliant red batik, (cuz I need more reds in my stash), and an adorable frog print that will be made into a gift for a very special person I know!

What better way to close out a perfect autumn day than with my Creative Prompt picture for the word Autumn:
