Down on the Lakadaisies Farm Blog # 28

Hello Everyone

I would like to thank everyone that came by our booth at the Quilt-A-Fair in Longmont Colorado and our booth at the AQS Show in Des Moines, Iowa. Again, it seemed that nearly everyone loved our new designs. I overheard John telling several women to hold the applause down a notch. He said something about getting a "big head". I promise not to get one. We met so many nice people. I don’t think I could continue on without all of your support.

Our son, Josh went with us to Longmont. He was a lot of help setting up and taking down, but we didn’t really need his help in the booth, so we told him to go take us some photos. We, Josh and I, saw groundhogs everywhere but John couldn’t see them. Josh tried for a hour and could not coax one of the little stinkers to pose....Hmmm. He did take some other pictures. I can’t find them right now so I will have to post them later. Sorry about that Colorado-WE REALLY DO LOVE YOU.

We took some good ones in the Des Moines area. They have this park in the downtown where they have these big works of art. Here are a couple of pics.

And they have these trees that are turning red-Sugar Maples we were told-magnificent. Anyway, here is a pic of one of them.

After the show we went to the town of Walnut, Iowa where we went antiquing. On the way there we stopped and took a pic of this windmill

pretty neat.

We have a lot of new stores that carry our patterns. I am going to try to list them on an upcoming blog.

Right now, I am focusing of the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. The show dates are Nov. 1, 2, 3 and 4 with a preview night on October 31. Please come if you can. Our booth number is 563. I can’t wait to see my old friends and look forward to making a lot of new ones.

Got to go...As always...enjoy life......ds

PS Our recently engaged daughter Ginny hopes to join us at the show and show off some of her "folded books"
