Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Monday, August 26, 2013
A little sewing done over the weekend--I'm behind making Rainbow Scrappy Challenge blocks--here is a blue and two yellow.

See everyone's design walls at Patchwork Times.

Friday I called Pat and asked if she wanted to road trip.  SURE!!  We drove to Sioux City (IA-SD-NE) and visited Heart and Hands Dry Goods.  Pat bought a pattern and I did a little stash enhancing.  Next we saw a sign advertising Palmer Candy Company.  Pat bought treats for the grands.  The shop was full of candy and shoppers and had lots of staff to scoop your goodies into bags for you. 

We were looking for a particular store--the on-line maps were wrong and we toured Iowa for a while.  Thought we might end up in Omaha--but we found an exit and got turned around and headed north again.   Pat and I are road tripping again on Friday. Pat asked if I know the stores in Sioux Falls better than IA? 

Last week Laura Beth and family camped with us.  While Laura Beth was drying her hair the breaker kept flipping.  We blamed it on her Industrial Strength hair dryer and said she'd have to use mine.  Ken suggested she go outside and use the direct plug in on the camper electrical box.  So Laura Beth--this picture is for you.  Your own Outdoor Hair Salon. (courtesy of your father!)

After they left Ken and I remembered we were running the central air, an electric fry pan and the microwave.  Adding the hair dryer was too much.  Sorry Laura Beth--it really wasn't your Industrial Strength Hair dryer!

Weekly Goals-
  1. Cut out Red Rainbow Scrappy blocks
  2. Finish a YoYo block
  3. Bind teal/orange quilt
Its going to be a busy week.  Volunteering three days and we're going to RibFest on Saturday.  Ribs, Bands and Beer!

I thought I was the only one that had disappeared from the blogging world, but thankfully you are back. I always enjoy reading your posts. Your daughter now knows the secret, so you will never get away with that particular tease again.

I put up photos of my summer quilting efforts. Classes should start for me tomorrow, but jury duty calls again. *sigh*

Hope the beer is cold at Ribfest, because the temps will be miserable. But I'm sure the ribs and music will be great.

I love the blocks , and I have had the online/gps directions be wrong more than once. But road trips are fun regardless!

Wow! You really travel far when you road trip! I used to blog four, five times a week. Now it's a great week if I get two blogs up!

Love, love, love going on road trips with friends!

Enjoy the Ribfest and take LOTS of photos to share. Have some suds for me!

I'm jealous! I've been wanting to visit Heart and Hand. And Palmer Candy, love me some Twin Bings! Heirloom Quilts in Sioux Falls is great.
