Every year we get in the car and make the trek up the coast to See Canyon where we purchase "fresh from the tree" apples. I wish we could actually pick them, but that's not an option. We love the variety called Splendour and have found only one place that grows them. They don't always have prolific quantities of them, so when we are notified that they have them, we go now!!
We stopped at only one fabric/quilt shop along the way, as I had a very specific fabric in mind that I was trying to find and knew some of the shops just wouldn't have what I was looking for. I accomplished my mission and found the background for the embroidery blocks in this quilt!
