I did a little shopping at Fat Quarter Shop during their birthday sale and picked up a couple of their pre-cut Jolly Bars. I always love the cute fabrics from Me & My Sister Designs……now to just decide what I’m going to make!
See those wooden ladders on top of the Avalance? Guess what they are for??????? They went to Florida where they will be used to hang quilts on in my friends house.
We were very lucky to be able to spend some time with our friends from Florida before they headed back home. We left for Minnesota on the day that they were arriving in the Quad Cities. My dad is to the left. Judy K is also a quilter and the ladders are hers. I used to babysit her when she was a baby!
One more cute photo, it was so great to see them!
I almost forgot to talk about the neat shop we found in Minnesota called Soderlund’s Wood Mill. It was funny because we saw the wood carving and stopped…..and bought…and then I asked if we were in Stillwater…..he gave me a funny look and said no. We had taken a wrong turn, the road we needed was about 10 miles back. We were in Chisago City, MN. Thank goodness for wrong turns!
We had a great visit with the owner/wood carver. His work is fantastic.
This is the one that caught my eye right away.
This was another one that was neat.
We ended up buying this one, he is a little smaller and cheaper. We already have a deer called Bambi and a moose named Bullwinkle so…..our eagle will be called Eggie. Builder Bob is going to build a stand on our deck for him.
