Limon Day!

I've decided we are going to live here for a long, long, LONG (forever kind of long) time.  So what better way to become acclimated to a new town than to jump right in with both feet (and three quilts)?  (Seriously, trust me on this... I've had a lot of experience acclimating to new towns.)

Limon Days was on August 4th.  The librarian (the town info queen) convinced me to display three quilts in quilt show.  When I dropped off my quilts I visited with the lady in charge.  Joy and I agreed that we needed a quilt club in Limon.  She set out sign up to see who would be interested.  More on that venture when I finally get around to blogging October's events.

In addition to the quilt show and old-type craft demos (there was even a tatting demo), there were a lot of outside things - petting zoo, farm equipment display and tours at the museums.
