My husband and I went on a mini vacation Friday and Saturday. On Friday morning I worked on this needle case and got the front cover done. I found the pattern here: http://sew4home/ Felt Travel Sewing Kitty. We left for Perry, IA on Friday afternoon and we stopped first at Prairie Star Quilts and I got backing for 3 wallhangings. Maybe I can get some things finished!
We stayed at the Historic Hotel Pattee in Perry, IA. It was an old beautiful Hotel that opened in 1913 and then was restored and reopened in 1997. It was beautiful. All 40 rooms are decorated in a theme. We stayed in the wood working room with all hand crafted wood furniture. (there is a quilt room and a needle art room that I would love to see.) Check it out at http://www.hotelpattee.com/
Then Saturday we went to the Iowa State Fair. ( http://www.iowastatefair.org/ ) Fun, as always. Saw all the animals and the quilts and photography. The quilts are amazing. I just can't believe all the talent we have in this state. Some day I'm going to enter a quilt. Don't you think that's a good goal to have? I do.
