More from the antique shop...

I did not take a whole lot of pics, at least not compared to what was there.  But I want to share a few more right now...
How's this for a riot of color and beauty?  If you had any of these beautiful plates would you use them?
There are reflections, but still, don't you think the girls are so well done?
Every which way we turned, there was more stuff to see.  I don't think we seen it all even though we basically went round the whole building at least a couple times.
Isn't it a beauty?

I want to remind you to click to expand the view.  You will be able to see so much better.  I wonder does anyone else like this kind of stuff?  I love it, and but have very little.  I just don't have a place to put it.

I only made a couple of x-blocks late this evening.  Like the ones shown here. I have over 20 of them now.  I am going to have to come to a decision on what I want to do with them.  I tend to make them or crumb blocks when I want to sew, but don't want to commit to something.

I have enough of the Falling Charms blocks to make a quilt, but am of the mind to leave them be for now.  And put them together later.  With Christmas right around the corner, I would probably not quilt it and I had rather have blocks waiting to be put together as to have a quilt top folded and waiting.  Not that I don't have plenty that are folded and waiting.  I have probably a dozen and most of them full-sized quilt tops...

It was such a beautiful day that we went shooting...I cannot tell you how long its been since I did any shooting.  And I didn't do much today...just went to be out with Roger.  But, I forgot how much I love the smell of gunpowder.  It is right up there with wood smoke or new mowed hay.
