She and I are going everywhere together and you will see me in many of the photos on her blog. Great fun at the Carriage Country Quilts in Des Moines - beautiful repro. fabrics, Civil Way fabrics in the most charming little yellow house. Beautiful kits and patterns - all terribly deserving of their inclusion in the Quilt Shop Sampler magazine a couple of years ago. Such a terrific shop.
Wednesday included a jaunt to one of the Jo-Anne's Super Stores. Quite the adventure for our international visitor. Actually we were able to find some fun, little gifts for some folks at home as well as utilize our 50% off coupon. Very fun! Of course, it was fun to bring a "real" native speaker to my Dutch class, last night.
Today we have a couple more outings and events planned. Details to follow.
We are having a great time.
