Last weekend Kelli and I made a road trip to Dubuque, Iowa. It’s only about a two hour drive. We were heading that way to meet up with our blog reader Ila and her husband Tom. We’ve long loved Ila and have met up with her several times. It’s always so fun.
Ila is known for gift giving. We have tried and tried to convince her that seeing her is the gift but she just doesn’t listen. She brings gifts anyway.
For me scrap goodies. Since this photo was taken I already have them trimmed up, organized and in the corresponding bin. Yahoo!! I am keeping my promise to process scraps right away.
Ila brought Kelli a box of gluten free goodies. She finds the best stuff…In the box were the amazing caramels that I love..and have to ration!! Thankfully Hubby likes them too so I don’t eat them all! Check out the fun fabric for making a kids book. So cute with the alphabet.
From reading the blog Ila knew that I was planning on doing the Rug Along that Mary at Country Threads is hosting. She wondered if I might be able to make a frame with an old curtain stretcher. I have it in the garage and plan to consult Hubby about it once he’s not in the field.
The gifts and lunch were truly appreciated and very fun but nothing-NOTHING-beats seeing Ila. THANKS!!
Today we’re hooking up with Patchwork Times.
