Farmer's Market

I haven't had any time for sewing this week between a busy week at work and my in-laws visiting from New Jersey. I did work on a mini quilt and here are all the tiny pieces cut out and ready to sew.

Mostly every spare moment has been spent driving around to enjoy the local tourist spots. One of the highlights is always the farmer's market, which is a feast for the tummy and the eyes! Great food and so many interesting and unusual things to see.

For you know how brussel spouts grow? On a cute little tree?!? I never knew that until this week!

And have you ever seen a sausage as long as this?!?

And the piles of beautiful fresh produce were unbelievable! We are so lucky to live in such a resource rich area.  Look at these grapes! I bought some bunches and thought we'd have them for lunch tomorrow but the gang has already eaten them!

I love the pepper stands and even though I don't love to eat peppers, I am always tempted to buy some because they look so pretty.  Even though I haven't had any time to quilt, I am having a blast enjoying the sights and the beautiful fall weather.

We are going to Oktoberfest tonight (warning....polka music on that Oktoberfest link).
No time for quilting in sight, but lots of fun family memories!

Pretty baskets of Peppers. Gotta do that Food Jar Quilt... It's just a WHIMM for now. And Polka Music, how fun. Reminds me of Fridays in High Sschool German class. Enjoy you're family time.

What a gorgeous Farmer's market. This week is the last for our little market until next spring - I'm going to miss it.

What an extraordinary farmer's market! It feels like a quilt!
