I drove to Blue Earth on Tuesday to meet up with my friend Felicia who then took me to visit Father Stenzel’s Stone City in the country outside of Wells. First I located Welcome Stitchery for Connie who wants to visit some time. As I sat in the parking lot, a customer walked out and I knew her! It was Linda B. who has been a Country Threads customer for years.
Then I found the quilt shop called Michelle’s on Main Street where I bought a single piece of fabric – I could have enjoyed shopping there but no time. Off we went to Wells.
I have to say right here that I was stunned at the beautiful rock work – my mouth hung open as Father Stenzel showed us around his yard. This lovely man is 83 years old and has been working on this project since he was 10. The grass was beautifully cut, there were flowers planted in many spots and pots of ferns were everywhere. This fern is over 100 years old!
Here is a series of photos:
I hope you got some feeling of the beauty! Tuesday night Kay, a Country Threads employee and neighbor, invite us to her garden for a quick get together but it turned out to be just 4 of us.
Breathtaking, isn’t it?
So today is feed delivery day, groceries and finish mowing. It’s going to get very hot for the next week or so – back to my sewing machine! Is anyone familiar with Tilda fabrics? Both Connie and I are using them right now and they are very beautiful florals.
Stay cool, Everybody! We’ll talk again soon!
