Another Weekend Ends

It's hard to believe that it's Sunday night already.  Friday night, I sewed on my quilt bindings.  On Saturday morning, I took another long walk on the towpath.  There's not much fall color here this year.  I think most of the leaves will dry up and fall off because of the unusual heat and dryness that we've experienced this summer.

Saturday night, we had free tickets to a crab feast. I ate one crab, and hubby probably ate a couple dozen. Picking crabs is not my favorite thing to do, and they were so salty I couldn't stand to eat them. Fortunately, there was also barbecued chicken, pasta salad, and corn on the cob.

Picking crabs

This morning, we got up early and went to a nice craft show, which we were lucky enough to also have free tickets to! It's a juried show, with nice crafts, but it seemed much smaller today than the last couple of times we attended. We didn't buy much, but had a nice time walking around. We got there before the big crowds.

We also stopped at a small farmer's market, and had lunch at hubby's favorite Thai restaurant. I let him pick the activities this weekend since last week was 'all about me'. Later this afternoon, I went to a couple more antique shops, where I bought a few more hankies. I should have enough now for my quilt top!

Now I'm settled in to read a few blogs, and work on those bindings some more. I hope everyone had as nice a weekend as I did.


  1. What a great weekend.

    Our leaves are starting to turn but they don't seem as vivid as earlier years

  2. thanx for your nice comments on my blog, Sunny!
    I have been peeking at your quilting dreams for quite a while now... Just don't seem to take the time to comment... The crabs look oh, so yummy!
    {And I'm loving your other blog--I just found it.... I love the pic. of the painted beach cottages, and your recent post of hotel hospitality!! :) Have a great day!

  3. What a nice place to walk. I ought to take some photos of where I walk and then you would see why I love your pictures! Too bad the crab was salty. I love crab - but not picking it out of the legs, too time consuming.


You comments mean a lot to me. Thanks for stopping by.
