The mornings have been cool, the nights have that fall breeze blowing in. As the sunflowers await their job, they smile down and I cannot help but smile back as I pass by, for here we are that time of year. A time for change, a time for the warmth of a great quilt, or hidden treasure that makes us smile, maybe even a birdhouse that may be added to our fall garden.
We will keep you posted during set up - what is in store for a fabulous fall show!
The Cupboards are coming and so many
wonderful treasures to fill them up with !
I have seen, heard and cannot wait to
share with you all that is about to arrive!

Raija works in acrylic and oil-painting on canvas, fabric, Christmas ornaments, glass, and watercolor paper. She has painted many murals in local schools, businesses, and private homes.
