Friday I went with 3 girl friends to Stover Missouri for a Christmas Gathering. It was two floors of Quilt shop vendors, and other vendors offering pottery, jewelry, stained glass, baskets, and western decor.
This was one of the first booths we came too.
What's missing in this picture? Katie. I hope the girls told you I was there!
It was a fun day. We stopped at the Amish market in Excelsior, where we all left with a bag of goodies. Bread flour, yellow eye beans, cracked pecans and two Christmas gifts were in my bag.
We found at least 3 quilt shops along the way. Lunch was at a little diner in Stover where we found the best freshly made hamburgers. After that we made our way to the Outlet mall at Lake of the Ozarks. Thanks Carolyn for driving. The funny of the day, was the hand blow dryer in the bathroom. Who knew we all had loose skin on our hands!!!
And then came Saturday, The blacksmith and I went to Excelsior, Missouri just as I had done the day before.
It was Blacksmith Association of Missouri meeting. My other blog has a few more details.
Once again I was lucky enough to join a group of ladies for shopping. We found the scratch and dent store, and two Amish fabric and quilt shops. Thanks, Carla, Margie, Nancy, and Ester for a couple fun hours of shopping. In two days I was in more then a half dozen fabric stores. What a good girl I was, I only bought two pieces of fabric totalling less than 2 yards!
