It's so 'fall-like' here today, I thought I'd share a recent photo of The Yorktown General Store.
We ran the store for many years, then closed it as we went back to school and on to other jobs...Then, a few years ago, we reopened it.  We had general gift items, mostly country stuff, stained glass made by son Jon, country furniture made by son Jeff, hand tied fishing lures made by son Andrew...and fabric and patterns.  Well, the location is quite "out of the way...and local people would rather buy their fabric at business was not as we had hoped...  Now, one of our sons lives in the building, and the yard never looked better...I swiped some tomatoes from his garden today...mmmm good with our tacos.
It's going to be down in the 50's tonight, great sleeping weather..
   I've entered a contest to win a GO fabric cutter, made by Accuquilt, on this website..  I would love to be able to take the GO with me when I go babysit my grandkids...  and it would be wonderful to use it to cut my scrap pile into tumblers and charm squares.....wish me luck.


  1. Thank you so much for blogging about the giveaway!! I wish you the best of luck in the drawing! Summer tomatoes are the best, aren't they?
