The service was very nice and we enjoyed visiting with DearSis and her guy. She brought me new slippers to swap for an estate sale dress form I found for her. I brought the fabric and embroidered blocks for our next quilt collaboration and we swapped some books to read.
There were a couple of small towns near-by that had antique stores so we explored those and hiked up a very tall overlook to see wagon train swales (wheel ruts) made by pioneers crossing the Big Blue River.
I gained an new appreciation of the hardships of westward expansion, 5 feed sacks and two aprons.
While we were away, I traced and stamped ten embroidery designs from Penguin & Fish for a travel project. They are so much fun to stitch, I have been working on them since we got home, as well.
The good news-they stitch up pretty quickly. The downside- I have another WIP...
