Today really is the first Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day and so Mom and I went to the newly opened LaRue's Quilt Kottage in Crescent City. After running a few other errands in town, we shared lunch back at Mom's house. Then it was time to go to our sewing circle where we are making sleeping bags for the homeless. It is a nice group of ladies and wonderful to share the afternoon with my mom.

Saturday we went to the annual Crappie (perch) Festival in Crescent City. It is always fun to walk around the booths for 'deals' and for fresh veggies. We got adventuresome after our tour of the main square and went to a new Bistro.
We sat outside in the sunshine and had a great lunch.
The walk down to Crescent Lake put a nice finishing touch on our day!
