The rest of the pictures...

I am having a heck of a time, and I know I am jumping all over the place, but please bear with me.  The above is Sue who was working at the Quilter's Parlour in Jenkins.

We thought that we needed our pictures taken with Paul Bunyon - Johnna and Linda are on the right.  I am on the left.  We have no idea who the little kid is...he ran up and wanted to be in the picture with us - that just makes me laugh!  Maybe he thought we looked like more fun than his own family.  See how he is missing he is missing his two front teeth?  So cute!

 Here's Johnna and I posing with Paul...
Now going back to our trip up - when we stopped at Country Threads, we decided that we wanted to buy Aunt Nancy and Larry a barn quilt for their 24th anniversary, which is today.  I couldn't wait for Aunt Nancy to see it, so as soon as we got home from brunch we had them open it.  Imagine my surprise when she opened it up and the one on top was the one that I wanted (not the one we got for Aunt Nancy and Larry!).  Well, DH and I will be celebrating an anniversary next weekend - I will actually be in Galena and will celebrate with Mom and he will celebrate with the fluffies.  Anyway...Mom secretly got a barn quilt for us too!  I am so excited - I love it.

This afternoon we took a boat ride with the neighbors, Carolyn and Ron, in their pontoon boat.  It was a beautiful afternoon - the weather was just perfect. 

These ducks have decided to make themselves at home on the dock - I think we were annoying them!

Ok...that's it for now...sorry about the double postings!

Have a great week!


  1. You're a hoot, Julie Girl!! Love it!! All kittywampus and all! Don't quite know where to begin commenting - you packed so much in!! Love the little guy who joined you in the photo shoot - that's too funny! And, love your quilt from your mom....lucky you (and happy anniversary!!) Looks like you're having a wonderful time...hope it continues so!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  2. Who wouldn't want to take advantage of a photo op with Paul Bunyan--even with total strangers? How cute.
    Love those barn quilts. That is something we don't see out west. I want one on my house. Don't think DH would agree! : )
    Happy Anniversary to you!

  3. Wow, how neat. What fun and a Flying Swallow block, too. both of those barn quilts are stunning!!! What a treat.

  4. So much fun for you and so much fun seeing a picture of you! Love those barn quilts - I'm so jealous. I just got a flyer from them and lusted over a couple of them!

    Glad that you've had a good time and Happy Anniversary!

  5. It looks like a picture perfect vacation. What a great setting to relax in!

  6. How funny about the kid in your photo! Cute! Minnesota has some great shops. My father in law lives in Nisswa where you were previously. We really miss the MN lake life! Love the barn quilts. Are the mounted on canvas or what? I don't know that term.

  7. Wow - wish I could have been a fly on your shoulder for this trip, Julie! Love where you stayed and wow - just everything else! Oh...I've always wanted a barn quilt and didn't know you could actually BUY one! I thought I might make one for our house! I bet the kitties are sure happy to have you home!
