We always have a good time when we go to Hamilton, Missouri to visit Margie and Phil. When we arrived in town a little before 2 o'clock on friday, the blacksmith dropped me off at Margie's work. After she wrapped things up for the day we took off for Missouri Star Quilt Co. We had stopped at two quilt shops on the way to find sock monkey fabric, but no luck. (Ben Franklin at Macon and Hueffmeier's Fine Pines Quilt Shop in Brookfield)
At Missouri Star Quilt Co. I was successful. We are expecting grandson #4 in April. I think he needs a sock monkey quilt. After we left Missouri Star Quilt, we might or might not have gone next door for Blue Bell ice cream . . .
Saturday morning after a breakfast of sausage, fresh eggs, homemade cinnamon rolls, and coffee made with freshly ground beans we took off for Jamesport, an Amish community. The weather didn't cooperate but it was still fun visiting many of their businesses.
Then there was this barn quilt!!!
They had tons of beautiful fabric. My only suggestion is take a flash light, especially if it's a cloudy day. Those gas lights aren't very bright.
It's always great to get away for a few days, especially with good friends.
Life is good.
