Of course the further South we went the more snow geese we saw - great huge flocks of geese everywhere. Kinda hard to take moving pictures of geese but I think you get the idea . . . fields and fields of white. Quite the sight!
This was supposed to be a quick picture of a very interesting looking sky - which it kinda is, but to me it turned out being more of a typical small town America scene. Definitely a slower pace of life in this small town - more my speed.
This cozy little shop is located in Jamestown, ND on a very quiet street that almost seems to be heading out of town. Randy thought for sure that we were on the wrong road and was ready to give up the search! Thank goodness we kept going that little extra bit and didn't miss out on the lovely visit and some more of the books to add to my collection. Trish, the owner, was just getting ready to pack up and head over to Minot, ND for their big quilt show. (I've since heard that it was a wonderful show!)
Instead of staying in Jamestown we decided to carry on to Mitchell, SD which was a fair trek from Jamestown. We felt it was much too early to stop for the day so we continued on. Luckily we did as a huge snow storm came through and, as I understand it, all of the towns North of Mitchell recieved quite a large amount of snow. This is a picture of the interstate just outside our hotel window in Mitchell - they did get some snow but nothing too serious - thank goodness.
Ah! . . . Another quilt shop! This is where I found some of my charm fabrics and also a really nice little pattern to use for charms. Can't wait to work on this little beauty.
And . . . next door was this little shop - "The Little Red Hen" - sorry about the reflections, but that was the only way I could get a picture. Look at the little foot prints going acorss the front of the building - adorable! Full of great gift ideas that every traveller is looking for.
More charm squares by Sandy Gervais - can't wait to find some time to myself to play with some of these prints. Maybe this weekend . . . oops!, forgot . . . have a little quilt showing to attend on Saturday - maybe I can play with fabric on Sunday.
'til next time,
