Field Day of the Past

Friday I was in Goochland helping the guild with Field Day of the Past.  Country Piecemakers has a booth where we sell various fabric items.  The money supports our charity -- quilts for the NICU at a local hospital.  

Our space was on the side porch of a log cabin.  It was a bit windy and chilly so I was happy when my time was up.  Surprisingly we sold about $100 worth of quilts and "stuff" before I left.  By the way the star quilt above is a raffle quilt to benefit the guild and we sold quite a few tickets for it. 

 Across from us was this pen where trick riding was being shown. 
Two? Really riding two horses at once?  This gal made it look easy. 
Down the row was this enclosure showing off American wolves... 

There were a lot of tractors and trucks and, yes, tractor pulls. And, no I didn't watch any. 

I did watch some steam driven saw mill activity.  And a piece of equipment that squished molasses from cane. Or whatever it actually did. I was on my way to JoAnne's with a 20% off everything coupon and wanted to get on with that before all the good stuff was sold. (as if!) 

Today I'm off to return some things I got for the wedding and didn't like -- shoes and a dress.  Don't know if I'll do any shopping or not. 

Happy Quilting All!

  1. What a worthwhile cause to raise money for the NICU.

    What a woman! Initially I thought that was YOU riding 2 horses!

    Your granddaughter Sophi is adorable! I found her on the wedding blog post. I'll be looking for pictures of you two at the sewing machine!


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
