What a wonderful vacation we had! Now before I tell how many miles we put on our car, you need to know that we love road trips. So here it is: 5446 miles! At some point I will share a few photos from our travels, but first, I had made arrangements with my quilting friend in Kansas, Linda from Linda Quilts to meet her and her husband at a restaurant in Holdrege, NE. We had a great breakfast, and then we went to Quilter's Delight, which is so accurately named! There is so much fabric and lovely samples! The lady who owns the shop was very, very nice. The two photos below are of Linda and I in front of the shop. Needless to say, I parted with some cash here. I was almost out the door when I saw something else I just had to have. It was so nice to see Linda and her husband again.
I have long been a fan of Pearl Louise patterns, so when we went through Rapid City, SD, I just had to stop at her shop, the Thimble Cottage. What a wonderful shop this is! The displays are stunning, and so many beautiful quilts on display to tempt the browser. Unfortunately, when I arrived, it was nearing closing time, but maybe it's a good thing I didn't have more browsing time. I came away with a book that has a great snowman quilt pattern that I think I will have to make.
