All In A Week

How much can I possible cram into one week? Well, there's quilting to be done.

Then there was a block to make for Terry's quilt. You can read more about why here. I'm the volunteer longarmer for this project of love as well.

Then my DH and I took a small trip away from home for a few days to Pilot Mountain and Mt. Airy. I snapped a few pictures of some cute shops in the old downtown areas.

This quilt caught my eye in one of the many antique shops.

I took several photos of all sort of Autumn displays.

Then on our way back home going through Winston-Salem we stopped at the Dixie Classic Fair.
In between all the above was the usual grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry...the list goes on. Then poof just like that the week is over and now I'm back to quilting.

YOu are one busy person...I am just drooling over your long arm, can you now show that any more to keep me from having to wear a bib? HA!! Love your bat below...

That's a beautiful block for Terry! Such a sad story! So nice of you to volunteer quilting the quilt when finished! I was going to volunteer a block, but there were so many, I thought they probably had plenty. Isn't it nice to get away and your pics of your stops are wonderful! Fall is a perfect time to travel! Best wishes for a great week!

I have been to Mt. Airy. Nice smaller town. We went to a drive-in theater. Wonder if it is still open.

Sue said...

Nice photos! Love the one with all the quilts hanging!
Used to live in Winston-Salem years ago! Loved it!

Cindy said...

Oh my, oh my, what wonderful Fall pics! The last one with all those little quilts hanging high inspires such inspiration. Why can't Fall be year-round? Oh, how I'd love that.

BTW - you crammed ALOT into one week. I guess this means you didn't get any rest.

Anne said...

Wow, looks like so much fun! Did you buy anything? The quilt on the machine is beautiful!

Well....'POOF' me into your world...sounds like fun!!!

Good for you Mary to be the volunteer quilter for Terry's quilt.

Sounds like you had a busy week and some even busier times ahead. But you know what they say, huh? If you want something done, give it to a busy person.

Thanks for sharing some of the sights of your 'mini' vacation. Looks like you stopped at some awesome spots!

I remember driving thru Mt Airy on our way to Ohio and seeing the different shades of Autumn. I bet your trip was a lot fun.

I know, I know... my week's been the same, busy-ness reigns. I was too busy to take photos last week, glad you weren't! ;) Thanks for the inspiration.

Stephanie said...

Busy, busy! Love antique shops and craft fairs. Love the Autumn displays too.

Your block for Terry's quilt is so pretty. You're so sweet to quilt it.

I really enjoyed the pictures of your little getaway, especially the picture of all the quilts hanging. Very inspiring!

Pat said...

Bless you for donating your services to quilt the special quilt for Terry AND (as if that wasn't more than enough) you even made a block for it, too. You are one very caring person...that's for sure! Loved seeing your trip photos, too.

Pat said...

Looks like some great places to shop!! Lucky you.

Suzanne said...

I'm up late working on Terry's block right now. I was so happy to read you're one of the longarmers!

Kim said...

Good of your hubby to haul you off for a couple of days of fun. Yeah, that red quilt is a stunner, now I want one! Thanks for volunteering your talent for Terry's quilt, now I know it's going to be fabulous and done soon. Thank you Mary!!

Wendy said...

You have HAD a busy week. That quilt caught my eye too. The autumn displays are wonderful to see.

Shakerwood Primitives said...

No wonder you haven't been around lately. So how was your trip? Meant to ask earlier but same goes here about being busy. Not quite as busy as you, though! I skipped the grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and laundry!!! LOL

I have read about the quilt for Terry and it is so nice of you to do the quilting.
I didn't enter anything in the fair this year. Maybe next year.

Candace said...

It's so nice what you're doing for Terry! Gosh - what a fun shopping trip - I'm eyeing that quilt and also the baskets in the last photo -they look like Longabergers?
Cheers!
