Well, I’ve been lax on blogging. Lots happening in life. Today is my first installment of catching up. I’ve missed you!
I made a quick trip to Holmes County in early August. A friend invited me to come with a group of women. The only reason I hesitated was that our third grandson was due at the same time. We decided Mike could keep the older grandsons until I got home if needed (if their parents went to the hospital). I decided to drive separately so I could be home in three hours if needed. While there, I also did some leg work in preparation for a trip to Holmes County that I was planning for a group of friends in September.
The treasure I found on this trip was unexpected. I stayed at Hotel Millersburg. That evening I took a walk down the middle of town. The stores were closed, but I could window shop and see if there was anything I wanted to come back and see the next day. I found a unique store called Modern Farmhouse. Out front on the sidewalk were several items including half of the blade from a windmill. It struck me, as I had an idea for it. I thought it would look awesome hanging on our barn. I took pictures, and sent them to Mike for consideration.
After he looked at the picture, I heard music to my ears, “Whatever makes you happy.” So the next day, I went to the shop and purchased this monstrosity (4’ x 8’) to be picked up in a month on my next trip when we would have our truck. Check back for the installation of this with my next barn quilt….
