July Quilt Show

One of the local quilt stores, Rooster Creek, had a quilt show this weekend. I met my friend there & we had a nice time. There were a lot of beautiful quilts there; my favorites were the vintage quilts. They always amaze me how each piece was cut with scissors & sewn piece by piece. Not like today with rotary cutters & sewing machines.
We hope to do some camping once it cools off. We have one trip planned to Hermann, MO in September. I look forward to fall & the cooler days!

This one was my favorite. It was 110 yrs old!

Missouri Star Quilt Co

One of my friends had never been to MO Star Quilt CO. Yesterday, we took off to Hamilton, MO to the mecca of quilt shops. I've only been here once before. Jenny, the owner of MO Star, was in Australia. This time, she was in Hawaii. Someday I hope to see her in person. I love all her, MO Star Quilt Company, tutorials on YouTube! She's helped so many make beautiful quilts we never thought possible!

Even a man cave for the husbands who visit. Comfy chairs and a pool table.

My friend , Jon and I, always have a blast together.

Hope everyone had a great 4th

I haven't posted in a while. Normally when it gets hot, I hide out in the A/C until Fall comes and sew. But it had cooled off from the 100 and 90+ temps we were having just in time for the 4th. We also had more rain then we had the entire month of June. For the 4th my daughter invited a few friends over and we bought some fireworks. We normally go up by the Capitol but being one of the bridges is shut down, for maintenance for 4 months, we opted to stay home. Hope everyone had a great 4th!

My grandson enjoyed the snakes. 

He would grab the ash from the snakes 

He would put the ashes in his big wheel. Said it was gasoline for it. But he had fun!
