Art, Antiques and Ice Cream

On the way to the Wine and Blues Festival at Soaring Wings Winery, stop off on Main Street, Springfield for some fun places. Etched garden stakes, dicroic glass jewelry, silk painted scarves, felted hats and purses all abound at the gallery. Wonderful antiques just down the street at Corky's Place and up the hill visit the old fashioned Soda Fountain at Springfield Drug. Their ice cream is the best. Even get balloons for the kids. Fun day!!!

Omaha Quilt Show

Just returned from the Omaha Quilt Show. I had a booth there. Lots of great folks stopped by. Sold a couple of my hats in addition to some of the other art pieces. The hats were a hit! People ooh'd and aah'd over all the color in the hand dyed scarves. The art quilts by Sharon Malec were a crowd pleaser. Lots of interest in classes...I'm excited.

Mike and Mary who interviewed me on their Morning Blend show, KMTV, a couple of weeks ago participated in the celebrity quilt judging.

I met people from South Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri, California as well as area states.
