Fall Festivals and Slow Sundays

Fall is my favorite season. One of my favorite things is the fall festivals. Yesterday I went to a folk festival at the Buchanan Log House located in the Donelson area of Nashville. Sorry that the photo is a little fuzzy. There are several log buildings on the property. It was my first visit there.

They had blacksmiths, women making corn shuck dolls, music, folk dancing, candle-making, and more.  And, of course, there was quilting. I guess I didn't win the quilt raffle. Oh, well. I did see a hand-operated sewing machine. I had never seen one before and it made a great stitch. 
Don't know if you can see it, but there is a  banty rooster sitting on the banjo picker's shoulder.

Today I was a little late with my slow Sunday stitching. I had to go visit a neighbor in the hospital. But, I have made some headway on the Trim the Tree pillow. Because the pattern says to put two pieces of fabric together, I was afraid it would be difficult to stitch. But, it is going very well. I just love redwork.

Drop in on Kathy's blog to see what else was being slow-stitched this Sunday.
