We went to Kansas (where I saw this hankie quilt, quite well done. The tag mentioned that all the hankies were 'significant' to the quilter. Or to the person the quilt was gifted to. Or something.) It was a quick trip and I am not sure what all went on.
Also? In Kansas? The lilacs were In FULL! And Glorious! Bloom! Bushes and bushes (bushels of bushes!) typically line yards and farms in this part of the country, and I was wont to shout "stop the car"on seeing them initially! But there was no need, because there were plenty to inhale all around the yard of my in-laws.
Of all colors...
The big doin's around town was the 20th Annual (and final) Victorian Day. Certain townfolk were dressed in tyme appropriate regalia, high tea was available, train rides, a tour of Victorian homes in town, the quilt show, and so on. High tymes for a town of 600!
Also on display a vintage caboose...with intriguing wood. ( I did not choose to photograph the latrine...)
I had ample opportunity to practice my picture takin'. This old part of an old building in an old town caught my old eye.
So anyhoo. I would have probably blown off posting tonight but there is this little challenge going on with The Blog Hub group on Ravelry. I think we are posting every day this week. I will refamiliarize myself with the details once I am unpacked, but I am pretty sure I was supposed to get a post up today...it might have been yesterday, but being without internet yesterday, I am doing the best I can!
(As always, clicky on the pix makes them rilly big, and the lilacs may just give off a whiff if you try...)
