Young at Heart

Meet an amazing couple. They just celebrated an anniversary and I'm sure they're just as much the love-birds as they were fifty-five years ago! Young at heart and spirit, that's how I hope we're enjoying life just as much as they are in another 20+ years.
We took advantage of the beautiful weather this past weekend for another motorcycle ride. I'm sure that doesn't surprise anyone! Riding up past Indianapolis and over to the Dayton, Ohio we stopped to spend the night with my aunt and uncle. It was great to see them again!

Whenever we go somewhere I do a little research to find any interesting quilt shops along the way. It's hard to find them open on Sunday though but the Fabric Shack in Waynesville was. I can't say that the outside of the shop is very exciting, but they do have a LOT of fabric and I was able to find a couple of pieces I've been looking for. The entire town looks like a great destination for some serious gifty and antique shopping! We spent a little time browsing before getting back on the bike for the trip home.

This is the modified Jelly Bag that I made for Aunt S's birthday (It's tomorrow so I'm wishing her a Happy Day!) I used up some of my Amy Butler stash for this one. I've got another "secret" project in the works and I've also been informed that I owe a bag to another one of the daughters! My father-in-law also has a birthday this week, so wishing him a Happy one too!

One last thing. Have any of you ever visited the nienie dialogues? Nienie was severely burned in a terrible small plane crash last year and though she had a popular blog before that, she now diaries her healing progress. I've been inspired and impressed by her honesty, her humor and her bravery. Check it out if you need a reason to be thankful for your own blessings.

Have a great week!

The fabric shack is only about 5 minutes away from where our SweetiePie grew up and close to where they got married. You do know that it is THE fabric shack that bloggers talk about when they say they mail-ordered some great piece of fabric, don't you? So true -- the outside isn't exciting, and the samples leave a lot to be desired, but a great selection.

What a sweet looking couple. Isn't it fun to hunt out quilt shops along the way when you are traveling? Fun post.
