Bright and early this morning, Mr. Painted Quilt, Mac and I headed sixty miles up the valley to to the Wolfville farmer’s market. Sounds like a fair distance to drive to go shopping, huh? Well let me tell you, it was well worth the trip.
Does it get any better than this?
All the veggies are locally grown in the Annapolis Valley and are certified organic. Fresh red potatoes, tomatoes, butternut squash, rutabaga, red onions, mini bella mushrooms, sweet potato and brussel sprouts…yummo!
And what about the French olive baguette? I can’t wait until dinner to dig into all this goodness. We also picked up a jar of ‘Pepper Garlic Jelly’ from the Tangled Garden booth. We were given some to sample on a cracker and it was to die for. Our mouths were still tingling fifteen minutes later!
My postage stamp quilt is progressing. Eighteen blocks are made…
with thirty more to go. I’m really liking how it is coming together, especially the ‘scrappiness’.
I also have some news to share with you regarding the 2-strand Aurifil thread that I spoke to you about in my last post.
Laura, the Etsy shop owner, emailed me to say that since my post, she has run out of the red colored thread. With any luck, she is hoping to receive more sometime next week. The thread is called 12 wt Bright Redwork #2260.
Unfortunately Etsy does not allow the product to be shown on the site unless it is in stock so you cannot see the actual red thread but you can see the other colors that are available in the line by clicking HERE.
Here’s a close up of the thread in orange. If you click on the photo you can clearly see the physical make up of the thread.
Laura told me that because of the inconvenience, she is going to offer a 10% discount to those who read this and order the redwork thread once it is back in stock. To qualify for the discount, you must enter the following code when checking out…codered10.
Good deal, huh?
