Good Sunday Evening...

Hope all is well with you and yours.  Tonight, I will share the goodies found at Lena Mercantile and Quilters General Store from last week's road trip.

Top picture is Lena Mercantile, where, in the middle picture, is a pink and white checkered, linen tablecloth to be repurposed along the way, tiny Christmas themed fabric folded  to be used as a edging on quilts (Prairie Points) and a tiny hankie with two native girls on a teeter totter, all found at the Merc.  Also, a packet of quilt squares which the Proprietress acquired at an estate sale.  I must go through them to see what can be salvaged and repurposed.  Could not pass up a bargain.

The small quilt in the middle picture was a store sample from Quilters General.  A Kim Diehl pattern and fabric.

The third picture, fat quarters of lovely fabrics.

That's it for tonight.  Sending you blessings and all good thoughts.

Hi on Wednesday

Hope all is well with you and yours

Just a few snippets tonight.  Currently working on Kathy Tracy's Scrappy Star Quilt from her book titled "Remembering Adelia."

Below is one of the completed blocks which I posted recently

For Kathy Tracy's March Challenge, I have been busy preparing the patches for "Scrappy Pinwheels."

Today, DH and I decided to take advantage of a sunshiney day.  Drove to a favorite spot about 100 miles from home.  A town called "Lena."  DH and I camp here at  a local state park and pay a visit to the "Lena Mercantile,"  while in that area.  The Mercantile is a charming collection of antiques, odds and ends and many pleasant finds.  The Proprietress, Ruth Maedge is a gem.  We have become friends over the years.

Just noticed that there appears to be a reflective pond in front of the Merc; its actually the roof our our car!

In my next post, I will include pictures of a few items I purchased there and also, a small quilt I purchased at another stop on the way to Lena.

It was a good day spent with my best friend.

Oh, found an unexpected and delicious place to have lunch between the quilt shop and Lena.  Its called "Dickey's BBQ."  DH and I first tasted the wonderful beef brisket sandwhiches in Texas on the long road trip in November and December of last year.  Yum!

Blessings sent your way!

Good Sunday Evening,

Just a little news this evening.

Here is the updated block for Kathy Tracy's Mystery Quilt - Step 3.  A simple addition of framework.  This portion is not on Kathy's blog yet; however, it is on FB and Yahoo.

This afternoon, DH and I took a nice drive to have a late lunch at  The location is about 30 miles from here.  We had delicious fried chicken and trimmings for our meal and apple pie a la mode for dessert.  There is also a petting zoo with sweet animals.

Sending love and blessings your way...Sue
