We started the month by attending the first birthday party of my great-niece. She lives in Florida, so we don't see her often except on Facebook. I don't often like to share pictures of myself, but her daddy grabbed my phone and got a few pretty good shots. She's so precious.
The owners of the Creamery have planted a large field of sunflowers right next to the building, which was another reason for our visit. The sunflowers were facing away from the sun (?) so the pictures aren't the greatest, but that didn't stop us from trying.
After seeing the quilts, we wandered around the rest of the festival grounds. There were crafts, demonstrations, and plenty of food. I will go back again, and next time I'll spend more time looking at the displays and folk art.

Because technically this is a quilting blog, and that's the real reason you're probably here, here are some token stitching pictures.

And I almost forgot! I attended Quilt Odyssey in Hershey PA over the weekend. While sitting at a table selling raffle tickets, I had the opportunity to meet one of my blog followers! How fun. Thanks TR, I've sent you an email, and I hope we're able to get together sometime soon.
Be kind, always. Sunny
