Been on a Vacation

We took a little vacation to see the Minnesota State Fair

 We walked and walked.... bought shirts and (below) we visited with butterflies!

(Yes, those are small blades of a double wedding ring I attached to this shirt to represent my Grandkids.) The butterflies stayed to rest there because of the warmth and quietness of this old lady, and because my hubby kept catching them and depositing them there.

 The next day we went to the Mall of America and walked too much there, too. So we decided to go for a ride to our old haunts in Minnetonka. (We lived there for a couple of years in the 90s)  Here on Minnetonka Lake we enjoyed the lovely 70 degree weather and he fed donut to the edge dwelling fish and ducks.  They put on a great show for us with all the boats going out and coming in. Really was the best part of our trip... and nearly free.

 On the way to all that we stopped at a quilt store in Rush City and I bought some fabric....Surprise!
These are the Dolly Quilts I've been making.  Found a bunch of little blocks and sewed them together. I've got a lot of blocks laying around.... you know, UFO, WIP, whatever you want to call them.
So we are back now, he's mowing the lawn and I'm doing the laundry... samo samo.
Have a wonderful long weekend.
