We leave tomorrow morning for our trip east -- Road Scholar and granddaughter's wedding with sight seeing before, between, and after. No blog posts until the end of October. . . . and no time for wildflower or even garden photos!
While I'm away my sewing machine will be in the shop for a much-needed cleaning.

Last evening our guild had a members' rummage sale. $20 per table. I split with Irene -- I had a table and a half and she had the other half. I packed boxes with books, patterns, notions, kits, and fabric. Every time I turned around I found something else I thought I could live without. [Note: quite a lot came from estate sales, thrift shops, and destashings.]
Not many people participated. The program chair said there were a number of cancellations. Attendance at guild meetings still hasn't come back to pre-pandemic levels.
I didn't sell out, but I returned home with less than I brought. Out of my house are: two pairs of never-used Gingher applique scissors, a pattern, four books, a pattern, a tote bag kit, six cute greeting cards decorated with buttons, a mola, a set of vintage blocks -- and, hooray, 32-3/4 yards of fabric! (I could not resist and bought five yards from other sellers.) It was interesting that all the sellers priced fabric at approx. $3/yard, an independent decision. My profit after the table fee and my purchase: $53.50.

I sold the blue bows quilt for $200.
I traced the origin of the signature block quilt
to Itawamba County, Mississippi, and sent it to the historical society there. I got this lovely email acknowledgement earlier this week:
(I'd link up with LeAnna's I Like Thursday but I'm not sure how.)
See you all at the end of the month!
