ON Sunday I visited the Sully Plantation Quilt Show and Sale. However, I'm not a quilter. I love this show because many of the vendors sell vintage fabrocs, trims, and buttons! The show is sponsored by the Fairfax County Parks and Recreation and is such a nice outdoor event!
The day was warm with a lovely breeze that kept the heat from getting too uncomfortable. Once admitted to the event, I hurried to my favorite booth run by a pair of lovely ladies who are spectacular crafters and who also sell lots of buttons, trims, and other goodies!
As you can see their booth is very popular! I visited it when I pretty much had it to myself. One of the ladies, Debbie Hartwell, makes the most wonderful pin cushions. Her creations can be found at Earth Angels Toys! You all know that I certainly can appreciate another pin cushion crafter!
Here is my favorite part of visiting this wonderful booth! BUTTONS!
Aren't these vintage sewing machines wonderful? This particular booth deals in very old textiles, quilts, and notions!
This "cherry" quilt caught my eye just before I spied this booth out of the corner of my eye...
I purchased quite a lot of fabric pieces from these ladies. Everything was priced to sell!
I joust couldn't resist taking a photo of these gorgeous Nasturtiums which grew in profusion in an herb garden on the grounds!
Quilts everywhere! I hobbled out of the sale with a bag stuffed full of goodies! I couldn't wait to get home to sort through them all and start sewing! You all know how that is!
Today, as you all know, is a sad anniversary for everyone who cherishes peace. I was sitting that day where I am now, down in my basement office with the window open. I heard the airplane hit the Pentagon (I live a few miles away) and didn't know exactly what I had heard until I switched on the television. In this day of rememberance for those lives lost, honor those who have fallen by loving one another. Love to All of You. XXOO, Beth
