Friday Night Sew In Update

In a little town across the river from us, Altus, there are at least four wineries. One of them was having a winefest today. On the way to school Friday, I heard one of the owners on a radio show talking about the festival. I thought I heard him to say that even though the festival was on Saturday, activities would begin at 3 p.m. on Friday. Since they have a nice restaurant on the premises and he said that during the past year or so they also opened a Bistro, Larry and I decided to go over and eat and listen to some music.

We got there after 5 p.m. and nothing was going on. So, I figured I misheard. We also couldn't figure out where the Bistro was. So we found an employee in the "clay shop" and she told us where to find the Bistro. Well, I've never been to a Bistro but this was not what I expected. It was basically a little sandwich shop in front of a liquor store.

So, we ventured the five miles or so back to the German restaurant and had a wonderful meal.

I think when we came out I heard some music but it was already almost 8 p.m. so we decided to go home.

I settled in my sewing room and was going to work on adding the borders to the pink and green flimsy but didn't have enough of the fabric I wanted to use. I just didn't want to make a decision on borders. So I decided to start on Natalia's Snowflakes Are Falling quilt. I've had the fabrics picked out for several weeks. This is how far I got last night.

Can't wait to get back to work on it. But first the pink and green flimsy will be finished and will get quilted.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. We stopped at the Bistro once when we were on our way through going to NW Arkansas and we were disappointed with it as well, we kind of just wandered through looking at things and left. I have been to the German place - it is at the winery isn't it - I don't remember the name of it. I went there with a group of women I worked with at the time - gads, that must be 12 or more years ago now.

  2. We were at our local winery today, too. I think next weekend is another wine trail so we may join in on that. Your snowflake blocks are beautiful. Looks like you had a fun time today and a nice dinner.
