Classes, Pumpkin Picking and the Trevor Zoo!!

Columbus Day Weekend was filled with a lot of different activities for the Quilt Basket and for Carter! Sunday my parents had a wonderful time running our booth at the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show in Poughkeepsie.  While they were there, I ran our final Technique of the Month Class of 2015 with Jackie Kunkel (certified Judy Neimeyer instructor) at the Mizzentop School in Pawling.  We have spent the last 9 months watching the students work on their quilts, every one is so unique and beautiful.  Thank you to everyone who attended this class, we had a lot of fun!!

We will have another class starting in March with Jackie Kunkel.  This will be a 3 month (1 session a month) class covering the Prairie Star.  More details to come in my winter Newsletter. This is a great class learning more Judy Neimeyer paper piecing techniques.  We currently have a sample in our store- stop by to see the completed quilt!

While all of these Quilt Basket events were happening, Carter was invited to go pumpkin picking with a few friends of ours.  He had a great time and brought home an adorable pumpkin.  Thank you to my friends for spending the day with him.  He cannot stop talking about the tractor hay ride!!

 We also had a wonderful time with our friend Grady and  his Grandma Sue Sue at the Trevor Zoo in Millbrook this weekend.  The weather was perfect for a walk around the zoo! We couldn't resist this photo of the boys holding hands while running around to see all of the fun animals! If you are local, this is a great place to visit for kids and adults.

Yesterday we were able to make it to the Beekman Rec in between rain showers so Grady and Carter could run off some energy.  These boys are best friends and I love watching them play together.  Hopefully, the weather will continue to be nice so we can squeeze in a few more outdoor playdates!!

I have a new Cutie Collections Quilt on my design board- I'd better get working on it so I can reveal it to you soon!!

Have a great week!
