This weekend I will be participating in my first fundraiser "race" run/walk 5K. I'm a little excited!
Two weeks ago I biked 40 miles (total) to one of the neighboring cities that has a Quilt shop. It was one of the most pleasant and beautiful bike rides I have ever taken, and the longest. I've only done 20 in one day. I was very ambitious that day. I did hurt some the next day, but I was not as sore as I had expected to be which was a real bonus. Everyone along the route, which seems to be a popular one for local bicyclists, said Hi to me. Every. Single. One. You don't get that kind of interaction in the city where everyone is GRR-GRRR GET OUT OF THE WAY MOFO!

Here is a Waffle Time pattern done with the pumpkin print I bought at the quilt shop I bicycled to. It's really pretty! This is just the top, haven't quilted it yet.

Remember that top I was working on that caused such a stir in one of the facebook quilting groups because I mentioned how mmisogynistic Hobby Lobby has become?
Well here is that top all done. They did help me pick the borders, which are mitered (pain in the ass that was).
Again, I found the pattern on youtube.
I've also been canning up some garden produce, beans and 8 pounds of cherries delivered by Sun-Ripe Fruits. I've gotten peaches from them as well and their produce is always top notch for less than grocery store prices.
So this week, I am thankful for the ability to take off on a random adventure. Not everyone is able. So I am very grateful to be able.
What are you grateful for this week?
Until next time...
