You know I'm getting close to the pattern finish line when it's time to take pictures for the pattern cover. Mr. Joe and I headed out with quilt and camera in hand and drove around the Livermore wine country searching for an old barn. It looks like it's going to be a good harvest this year.....a Harvest of Hope.
Sometimes, serendipity happens, and a horse drawn carriage comes into the scene just when you are snapping a picture......and poses for the camera.......right by the red geraniums AND the quilt!
Mr. Joe assures me this piece of farm equipment is a seed spreader.......I was afraid it was a manure spreader!
I would love to set this table with a bountiful harvest dinner in the vineyard.
The vines are heavy with grapes......wine grapes.

I felt like I played "quilting hooky" yesterday with minimal time spent at the keyboard or sewing machine. It was such a gorgeous day to be out and about, enjoying the beauty of our own community. I can work on the pattern tomorrow.....or the next day.....and the day after that.
