Country Sunshine Photo Shoot

Hello Everyone,
She's finished!  We popped the cork on a bottle of wine last night and toasted Country Sunshine.  It was a beautiful day here in the mountains for an outing to visit two of our favorite wineries and take photos.
Our first stop was Indian Rock Vineyards on Pennsylvania Gulch Road in Murphys, CA. We always bring company here for a picnic at the lake. I knew weeks ago that I wanted to have a picture of the quilt on the windmill.  Just look at that sky!  It was like Spring yesterday and not February.


The goose came over to check out my flying geese in the quilt.....of which there are many.

Our second stop was Ayrael Vieux Vineyard on Monge Ranch Road in Douglas Flat, CA.

Another windmill on which she could strike a pose.

This little out building is perfect for a picnic lunch and a glass of wine.  Mazie made herself right at home.  This area was very cozy when we went there on a chilly day last month.

This was taken inside the tasting room.  Perfect match with the walls and bench.

Today I have to sort through all of the photos and select one for the front cover of the pattern.  This is always an issue.  I want to show the whole quilt, but I want to be artsy at the same time.  A collage maybe?
I'm off to my Independence Hall Quilt Guild Meeting this morning.  I'm going to take Country Sunshine for show and tell.  Then this afternoon it's work, work, work on the pattern front and back covers.  Then it's print, print, print.  This pattern will be available on my Sew'n Wild Oaks Designs page on Etsy this week.  I'll keep you posted when it's out there in the marketplace.
Thursday I leave for Folsom and get set up for the 3-day quilt show.  This week has all the earmarks of a busy one.  I need a nap just thinking about the days ahead, and what I have to do for the show.  Maybe it's time to pop another cork and just sit back and enjoy the view.
