A Note from Valerie
I loved having a good reason to dig through my scrap drawer and use some up for the gallery this month. I got out a square punch then cut the squares down into triangles. I played around with the pattern until I found something I liked. I stitched down the middle of each column of triangles and them pulled up the edges for some dimension.

All three of us ride together like this at least once each harvest. Each year the combine cab feels a bit smaller. This time it's Matt's last harvest as a full-time OBS employee.

October Fun Fact
I've been using the same DSLR, a Nikon D50, for eight years now. I'd love to upgrade, but if it's not broke, don't fix it. Right?
