Road trip

June 30, 2008

I have spent the last week on the road. Jim and I left for Indiana to attend the Circular Sock Machine Convention in Nashville, Indiana. I was concerned about the trip as we had to replan our route due to flooding in Iowa. We ended up going through St. Louis and then over. We spent the night in Effingham, Illinois and arrived at the Abe Martin Lodge on Sunday afternoon. We had a cabin that we stayed at from Sunday through Thursday morning. The cabins and the area were decorated with the characters of Kin Hubbard.

Inside the lodge were some interesting pieces.

These are some of the quilt’s on the wall at Sarah’s in Lawrence. I love going through the tall doors to see what they have.








Right across the street are two other places on Massachusetts Street I like to go.


Stitch on Needlework      

 In the back of this store, they also have quilt fabric. They have needlwork supplies in the middle of the store. In the front of the store they have Christmas collectibles like Christopher Radko ornaments, Snow Babies and villages. They also have quilted tote bags and wonderful seasonal items. 

 I then went to the Yarn Barn to get some carpet warp and to check out the latest knitting projects.












 I wouldn’t mind having this at my house 🙂






Then I was back to Topeka for a trip to the library and Saturday night church.


This library is one of the best assets in Topeka. I came  home with 10 books.
