Saturday we spent most of the day over in Shepherd at the Maple Syrup Festival. It was a friend’s birthday on Friday, so we treated the day as a celebration for her as well!
There are a lot of activities going on in Shepherd every year during this festival. We walked all around the village – the weather was glorious! It was sunny but not too warm and with a nice cool breeze.
Of course one of my favorite events was the Festival of Quilts. I was pretty disappointed that they apparently lost my registration information so none of my information was listed (except my name, misspelled, boo!) for my feature quilt, Modern Venus:
My Fall Frolic challenge quilt was also on display and several people mentioned to me that they liked it, so that was cool:
I also enjoyed this feature quilt by Sharon Jarczynski:
Most of the other quilts on display were family heirlooms or quilts that were created from published patterns/kits, so I was pleased to see another representational quilt.
We also enjoyed the pancake and sausage dinner, bingo, the craft show, the classic car show, the carnival, yard and jumble sales, and of course the petting zoo, where we met this adorbs goat:
It was a lovely day!
