Faded Memories & The Peddlers' Fair

Not much quilting going on here this weekend, this is about all I've accomplished so far, but hey I'm off until August 11th, WHOOO HOOO!!! I was overdue for a stay at home vacation. I was at use or loose time and we can't have that!
This is the start of the bag for my swap partner. All of you stash busters would be proud! I've decided to use what I have and I'm piecing a lot of it together, this the 3 Sisters, Faded Memories by Moda. It's from my Rabbits Prefer Chocolate quilt, had a lot left over. I need to make two more panels like these and I should be ready to start the stitching and assembly. Wish me luck!
Yesterday was the Annual Martinez Peddlers Fair. Every year I say that I want to go and every year it is so hot that I stay home. This year I made it down, but too late, everyone was packing up. The Peddlers Fair is a mixture of old, new and new made to look old. It's fun to see everything, there is so much to want, but I sure don't have space. I'm going to make myself happy by just blogging some pictures of all that I saw that made me smile.
And this last one made me laugh out loud. I wonder if he'll get a cut of the sale? More tomorrow!xoxomar

Was happy to see that you made to the Fair this weekend. I saw a couple of things in those pics that I wouldn't mind having myself ... and the OJ pic is NOT one of them. LOL

The Faded Memories is perfect for the bag you are making. Can't wait to see the end product.

That's going to be one very cute bag Mar! And laughing with you over the OJ picture -- I wonder if his sports memorabilia is more or less valuable since his trial???

Mar, Benicia's Peddlar's Fair is this Saturday, the 9th. The weather is supposed to be pretty nice. Please come! I don't know how it compares to the one in Martinez (I have not been to that one -- MUST go one year), but I always enjoy it. Let me know if you want to meet up; would love to meet another "struggling" quilter, he he!! Deborah@webajeb.com
