Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Vol. 33

Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Vol 33;

Whew, we are busy recovering from the last shows and getting ready for the next show. It was not exactly three shows in a row, but it was awfully close. We met a lot of nice folks at all three shows.

We have been to Virginia and Chicago several times and knew what to expect. We have been to Minnesota also, but never to Duluth. What a beautiful city. We thought that we were in San Francisco or maybe Seattle. Especially, when we were driving straight up those mountains from Lake Superior to our motel. It makes you appreciate automatic tranmissions.

We joined some of our very good vendor friends, Sam Winover from Two Sisters Quilting and Hannah Lee from Hannah’s Quilts in Kansas City. From there we had a little "rolling tailgate party" all the way to Duluth. John was the leader and he definately got some lessons on how to lead. He thought that he would show them how to follow. I got a pretty good laugh out of that. We had a little more fun on the trek from Duluth to Chicago. We had three days to go 468 miles. We, of course, got off the main road and had a blast. John finally figured out how to lead, and that was good. So here we are, three cars pulling into every antique store we can find in the tri-state area. I really love the food in Chicago. We had a couple of "new restaurants" recommended and they were both good, but we had to eat three meals in our favorite Polish buffet (Old Warsaw). It was great as always. We have not eaten everywhere and we welcome any challenges.

Now, it is easy to have fun when you are assembling kits and labeling pieces of wool. Getting ready for our next show in nearby Temple, Texas where The Wildflower Quilt Guild presents "Let Freedom Ring" Quilt Show. The show dates are July 12 and 13 and it will be held at the Frank Mayborn Convention Center, 3303 N. 3rd, in Temple, Tx. Show hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM. Come and see us if you can. 

John is busy printing and claims that he is going to mow the grass. It is hot, but we are enjoying a small break from the usual 100 + temperatures. I hope that it lasts for at least a little while.

Well, I better go see if I can get his motor running.

As always, "Enjoy Life"
