end of september

others have posted and shown pictures of the quilt show last week in chicago. unfortunately i am having problems downloading pictures from my camera so those may have to wait until another time. it was a wonderful moving experience to see not only the quilts that were made from people from the AD board but also wonderful quilts from so many others across the county.

after the quilt show lori, ann and i drove up to door county. it was very special for me to be able to show them a place that means so much to me. we visited all the typical "tourist" places as well as some of my favorites. neither had ever been to wisconsin so i had to make sure both experienced things that are equated with wisconsin. - friday fish frys, brats with sauerkraut, racine kringles, cheese curds and some wisconsin brewed beers. i did stop short of making them wear cheese head hats! lori of course wanted to see lots of cows and i made a point of showing her how "happy" wisconsin cows are, not like the reported california cow commericals which we wisconsin residents despise.

and of course before we could drop ann off at the airport in green bay, i just HAD to stop at lambeau field to show them the legacy in green bay. i think ann was disappointed that the houses were not painted green and gold!

thanks to you both for taking the time to come up and see a little part of my heaven. i just wish i could live there all year round. hopefully one day, bob and i will make that dream happen.


  1. I can certainly understand why you would want to stay up there full time. What a beautiful place! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to enjoy it with you.
    By the way, I didn't see a smile on those Wisconsin cows. ;)

  2. You're right, I was surprised that more of the houses weren't painted green and gold! I thought Packer fans were irrationally rabid.

    It was heavenly to be in Door County. The scenery is magnificent, no matter what the weather is. Thank you for "inviting" us (or did we invite ourselves?) to your haven. I could feel Russ and Gene smiling during our visit.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful time! :)
