I was pretty bummed when I realized I would miss the quilt show on Friday because of that darned root canal….until Rick asked why I didn’t drive to Des Moines afterwards. Drive 2 hours at noon to a quilt show that closes at 6 pm? How spontaneous! How irresponsible! How fun! So I did! But first a comment about the root canal. It went just fine. I knew it would as long as I could have the gas and at one point I heard myself snore! Yes, actually snore while she was working in my mouth! When it was over I apologized and she said snoring was the most supreme compliment I could give my dentist while she was working on me! Ha!
Saw so many people I knew at the quilt show – I finally decided to start taking their picture and put them here on the blog. No names, they’ll know who they are and it was such fun to run into everyone.
Many of the quilts looked impossible to make but they weren’t even my favorites. The two quilts that I loved at the State Fair by Jill Fisher were there and there was one Gypsy Wife. Lots of contemporary quilts caught my eye. I’ll just post some random photos I took of quilts I liked.
Today was another adventure – Junkapalooza at Heritage Park in Forest City, 14 miles north of us, the town where Winnebagos are made. Becky and I had planned to go to this first annual event and then Sam decided to come along, too. There were so many fun things for kids to do so Aidan and Lucy had a grand time. They went on the train, petted the rabbits,and rode the horse. Owen stayed in the snugly with mom.
Tonight is a bonfire party – when will I rest? Rick and I have decided to go to the movie,Sully, tomorrow afternoon at 4 pm so we won’t have to watch the debate. Smart, huh?
