Several years ago I used to make mohair teddy bears, this little guy is completely hand stitched and represents the season of Autumn. I also made ones for each of the other seasons that I will share as they arrive.

After spending the night in Centralia we continued down I-5 to Springfield Oregon. Something to Crow About is a lovely quilt shop a few miles off the inter-state highway.It is just filled with interesting corners of quilts, samples and fabrics. I love the mix of old plank floors with the brick.
This cow pin cushion is just too cute to pass up especially after just finishing my Out of the Box Mary Lou Weidman cow quilt. Aren't those polka dots cute?
Pioneer Quilts is one of my favourite shops in the area. This is my third visit to the shop and will not be my last. Most quilt shops are not open on Sunday in Oregon, but I found out they are.
Inside this large friendly staff shop there are some amazing samples. Sue Spargo quilts and samples adorn the wall next to a Kaffe Fasset sample.
here if you are ever in the area, there is a nice hotel just around the corner to stay at.
Back on the I-5 and heading North a quick antique fix at Kalama Washington. I love crescent moons facing this direction.
I found this pewter pin and my mom bought it for me, the swirl says "protect this woman."here She has a wonderful sense of design her quilting is quite amazing. Thanks Lynn!
