Buggy Barn Shopping

When we got home a new neighbor had moved in!  We were feeling blessed to have made it home, opened the shades, sat down on the couch with a glass of wine and were enjoying the mountains...when a huge...I mean HUGE bird was flying by the window and landed beside the creek.  I have never seen one of these guys around here.  I expected him to ask which way it was to Louisiana?

The crazy weather we had did incredible damage and one of the accidents we passed was the result of a lighting strike.  The town of Madras lost one of it's own.  This tough farming community where blogless Sandy lives will support each other through this loss but keep them in your prayers.

I was taken by one of the vendors at the Buggy Barn Show and not only picked up a new boyfriend (you'll see him in the slideshow) but this cute embellished wooden heart. 

...and I swear sometimes I believe I was born under a lucky star because Bonnie Sullivan was selling some of her wool design projects.  I have always loved this pattern and here it was...finished!  I think I may create a new category ProBySoel (Projects By Someone Else!)I wish you could see the glitter on this project!

As prompted by Karen...full disclosure of my purchases.  So here it Buggy Barn loot.  I could have easily brought home twice as much...the shop is sooooo dang wonderful and there were so many kits available.  They have wonderful wool.  Although I have never sewn a Buggy Barn pattern, blogless Sandy has and I am going to pick her quilty brain.

Be sure to get something to drink and a snack because once you start this slide show you are not going to get up for a while...and you'll be watching it over and over again until you decide what you are going to order from the Buggy Barn
