Visiting the Farmers Market


One of my favorite Saturday morning activities is to visit the farmers market at Grand Army Plaza. Grand Army Plaza is the main entrance to Prospect Park and is a really stunning location here in Brooklyn. I especially like it at night when it’s lit beautifully with the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch in the background.

Grand Army Plaza is about a 10 minute walk from my street and is home to the farmers market every Saturday. Of course it’s a great place to shop for fruits and vegetables, but you can also find locally made/sourced cheese, bread and pastries, milk, fish, and much more.

What’s better than visiting the farmers market on a crisp fall morning? Nothing! I stopped by Saturday and snapped a few photos to share. Check out the beautiful produce and flowers. And doesn’t the bread and cheese look delicious?

Must Love Pink

After nearly a year of working on this quilt I am finally calling it done!  This was one of those projects I started and got pulled away from many times.  I think it was the amount of cutting and piecing that made me lose focus more often than I would like to admit.

Pink and Red Hanger 2


I’m normally someone that starts a quilt and then works like mad on it to get it done, but this one was a struggle.  About two hours in I stopped counting the number of triangles I had to cut.  See all of these?

Pink and Red Floor


I’ve always loved the combination of pink and red and creating a quilt with those colors paired together has been on my quilt to-do list for years.  I’m happy to say mission accomplished.

With all of the pink going on in this quilt it definitely falls into the girlie category, and I say there’s nothing wrong with that!  Now on to the next project…
