Farmer's Market and Second Star

I went to the farmer's market with my DH on Sunday.  I got the biggest cauliflower and head of cabbage I have ever seen, just one dollar each!! 
The purple and yellow ones were just amazing!

The colorful eye candy was everywhere.  I love fall in the midwest!

This market is realtively small but it was fun to get some great deals on some amazing produce!

So backing up to Saturday, I got up and went to Zumba, came home, showered and watched the MSU vs U of M game. A HUGE rivalry, which MSU won yet again!! It was a good game too. Then it was time to put up my Halloween decorations and clean up the sewing room. Done. I also managed to sew my second star from the FQ Star QAL hosted by Moose on the Porch. I'm happy with it.

Block 2

I managed to sew all the lines on yet another chenille blanket, now for the cutting part! UGH that makes my hands hurt already!! 2 more to do and then done with that. I wanted to work on a top for my friend's mom but just could not get to it. Hopefully I will be able to work on it this upcoming weekend as it is one I need to have done before Thanksgiving.  I did talk with a friend and have another pattern to test for her, yeah!  Looking forward to working with her again.  So I guess that brings you up to date with what I have going on.  How was your weekend?  ~XOP~
