Quilt tops, a River Walk, and Kitties

The weekend was a whirlwind of busy-ness.  It started with a Friday walk on the Hillsborough River Walk.  We just missed the rain, getting our steps in before the drops started falling!  Jason and I admired again the amazing man-made stickwork structure by artist Patrick Doughtery.

I was in my sweet little shop Sidetracked on Saturday.  I love meeting my customers.  I had a new customer from Raleigh who found me on line.  She and her husband stopped in and we had a nice visit. Of course, the kitties (all four of them) keep life interesting and sweet.

Jason and I did a lot of garden work over the weekend, which was evidenced by my Fitbit blowing up with steps.  I managed a quick stop by The Scrap Exchange where I saw some beautiful quilt tops.  I passed them by without purchasing, but I did take a few pictures.
