Pear Fair and Quilt Show 2015

Yesterday was Courtland California's Pear Fair for 2015. We have never been and thought it would be fun. Looked on Saturday to see what the agenda was. Started out with a 10 mile run at 8 a.m., a 5 mile run at 8:30 and a kid's run after that. Nope, nope, nope. Not interested. But it did have a pancake breakfast at 8 until 10:30. Okay, sounds good.

We got there around 9:30 and headed out to have breakfast. It was good, but boy was it slow getting to us. The sausage was about the best I have ever eaten. We each got a plate with two pancakes, two sausages, two pear haves and some blueberries. Yummy.

They also had a small car show. There were only three antique cars. Here is our favorite:

It is a Ford.

After that we went to the school gym next door to see the quilt show. It was small but nice. Here are some of the quilts we saw:

Love the moose in the middle. The moose was cut out of Australian fabric. I thought that was funny. It really made him stand out, though.

Hand embroidered teddy bears.

Pattern is Whimsical Garden. I made one like it a few years ago.

Love these dresses. They are done in 3-D. Very nice.

This quilt was folded over the risers for display. Wish we could have seen the whole quilt. It was stunningly beautiful.

My husband and I had a good time at the fair and show. It was quite small and quite hot there. We only stayed about 2 hours and most of that time was waiting for our breakfast. We plan on going next year. Note to self: go in SUV as the parking was in a very uneven field. Hard on the little car's underpinnings. Also bring home a box of pears to can. We walked out of there with no pears in hand. Silly us. May have to drive back into that area and find a fruit stand. Pears were in practically every field we went by.

Great day. Came home and took a nap after all that sun.

Keep on Quilting
