Farmer's Dinner

Thursday, October 9, 2008

Each fall my childrens' elementary school hosts a Farmer's Dinner celebration. The event is designed to raise funds for classrooms. There is games, a cakewalk, costume parade, live auction, silent auction etc., It's developed into quite the affair. Each classroom chooses a theme, and parent donations are collected to build a basket to be auctioned off at the dinner. In addition to helping with the basket, I'm donating these two quilts. The above is a Turning Twenty pattern. 

This one was such a happy quilt to make. The fabrics are bright, happy and saturated with butterflies, flowers and bouncy little swirls. I chose an all-over butterfly pattern for the machine quilting. It reminds me of lounging in the backyard, daydreaming as the sun warms your face. 

The remainder of my week will be filled with more preparation for Farmer's Dinner, subcoaching Cassidy's volleyball team, dashing to Red Bluff to watch John Jr., and the rest of the CSHS team crush them in football, up early Saturday morning for my niece's soccer game, yet another volleyball game Saturday evening. . .ahhh, no time for sewing this weekend. 

Enjoy yours!
