Dear Emily reminded me this week that I have not posted lately. I've been just a bit busy with vacation, two weddings, etc. etc. But that said...We have four busses coming on Saturday, April 16. We are participating in the Cruisin' Kansas Quilt Shop Tour. There is a bus leaving from Overbrook, Severy, Newton, Emporia or Eudora all at the same time and making a circuit, all going the same direction. For $93.95, you get to visit all the shops and have a continental breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner included. I think that is a great deal.

We just had our 13th Annual Kansas City Shop Hop. It was deemed a success with lots and lots of first time shop hoppers. The batik designed just for the hop shops was brown with sunflowers and hawthorne flowers. Sunflowers as the Kansas state flower and hawthorne as the Missouri state flower. All the shops had different ideas for setting the 6" blocks together. We received a lot of compliments on our quilt. It is pictured in the photo gallery on our website.

I'll write more after the bus trip to let you know how it went. There is still time to sign up if you'd like to make the circle of shops. Look for us in Paducah. We are in the pink Finkle building where AQS has their sale books.
