Road Trip with-----

 
  
Kathy of Kindred Quilts, Missie of Hallbrook Designs and myself will travel east early Saturday morning meeting up with Julie of Me and My Stitches at the Woolen Needle in Williamsburg, Iowa. The four of us will be exploring quilt and antique shops in Kalona and Hills, Iowa. Lunching too! My (comfy) shoes are all clean and ready for me to wear during our fun filled day together!      
 
 Bella, our granddaughter, graduated from high school and I made a quilt as one of her gifts and will present to her after it's quilted and before she starts I.S.U. this fall.
 
 
"Bella"

 
We have six delightful grandchildren three girls and three boys. Both of our families live in close proximity of us.. It's been a great ride!!!!!
 
Enjoy the weekend...it's almost here!!
 
Hugs, Carolyn
