Taking Friday's back

Way back when...
I used to have Friday Fun Days with my boys.

Every Friday we would find some woods to walk in, visit Amish town, go to the city, etc. Even during the school year we would use Fridays as a discovery learning tool. 

I do not remember the last Friday Fun day we have had. Until today. (ok, yesterday, as it is after midnight). 

Up north where we live now, there really isnt a lot of opportunity to hit the woods like I am used to doing, unless we plan to drive awhile. Well I dont care. I am taking Friday Fun Days BACK and if it means I drive, then I drive. 

Today we went to the most beautiful Botanical Gardens in Overland Park, Kansas. It only cost $2 to get in. I saw SO MANY quiltspirations. My photos were just taken with my phone but you get the idea. 

Loved the little garden dancer.
I think this is exactly how I felt today.
I am so at home in the outdoors.
I just LOVE it.

I need to make a floral quilt.
I have always wanted to.
(I havent forgotten my pretty pattern Belinda!)

I think I could sit and stitch here all day long.

Or how about an entire studio in the woods.
Away from it all.
Think they would mind me setting it up here?

Another dancer...still my mood for the day.

So hillbilly....
love them!

This garden was really pretty in person.
It was red, white and blue.
I would like to applique a red, white and blue floral quilt.

Wait! This is the garden I could stitch in all day.
I'll just take both.

Or how about that bench over there?

Well, no matter, I had a wonderful time and so did both my boys.
Stephen even blogged about his day.
His is MUCH more interesting.
You better check it out.

Name changes

I had mentioned a while back that I needed to change the name of some of the ahhhhs. I did change them but I failed to show them to you. I need to do that TODAY and tomorrow you will see why :)

Number one is now called:

I wish I may
(remember that poem from when you were little?)

And number 14 has been changed from the friendship star to
Triangle Star
(sorry folks it had to happen)

Now tomorrow you will see why I had to show you this today :)

Peaks and Valleys

Several wanted a star name for this one but we have quite a few star names already so I went with Peaks and Valleys for number 52
