February 3rd 2009

We did eat at "Carlos O'Kelly's" this year and the food was excellent. When it said it was hot it was really really hot. Made Mark's eyes water and that is how he likes it...and yes, there is a Carlos O"Kelly.
This is Ken and Joan, he is 70 and she is 60 and they won the dance contest two years in a row. They are such a joy to watch together, they are so cute! We had a wonderful time at the 50th anniversary of the Winter Dance Party, our favorite act for the three days was John Mueller's Winter Dance Party...they were so good! We think we might go to Green Bay next year which is a weekend earlier but closer and shorter. Would like to see Clear Lake/Mason City in the summer!
Found the best quilt shop, Country Threads in Garner, they were the very first shop on the cover of the Quilt Sampler Magazine in 1995, kool huh. Was really a great place and they have quilt camp in the winter time.
Need to get into the sewing room tomorrow. It has taken me two days to get the laundry done and put away and just resting after the grueling weekend.

Sounds like you had fun! Oh, how I envy you being able to travel. I'm getting Island Fever something fierce right now. Love the new picture of you and Victoria on your sidebar!

You got to Country Threads?!!!! When I first started quilting I made several of their patterns. I love the saying they made famous to me....Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without!!

Sounds like a fun time. The quilt shop sounds fun. I can't wait to see what you do with whatever goodies you picked up.
