Catching Up

SO, I took some time to travel with my sister to her beloved James funeral service. He wanted to be buried at the Veterans Cemetery near his home town of Louisville KY. With the Virus, there were a lot of accommodations made. Only 10 people could go to the cemetery, and there was no Color Guard or Honor Guard. Only 20 people were allowed at the service at the funeral home. We had a little time to spare between appointments, so I took her mind off of things by dragging her to a couple of quilt shops in Louisville! 
Look at these cute fabrics! Now we worked hard to get these. The shop is Among Friends Quilt Shop in Louisville. You had to call ahead for an appointment...we called from the front door and the ladies there were so kind to allow us in to shop a little.
I hadn't seen this P Buckley Moss panel before, so, you know what they say, get it when you see it, because it'll be gone next time. Since I will not likely ever be in Louisville again, I got it!
 They had an extensive clearance section, I got this Moda Grunge Wine for only $8.99 on clearance. We also stopped at the Cozy Quilter, and I picked up two Harry Potter prints that I had not seen before. I know a person who is obsessed with all thing HP, so it was a fun find.
We had time  to visit a really nice Antique Mall near downtown. The Louisville Antique Market was fun to browse. I loved this boat shaped book case-it had wonderful painted pictures on the sides that reminded me a lot of our family relative Charlie Brown's work.  It's a very nice antique mall. I saw this jadeite piece, but didn't buy it.
We also drove around downtown to see the tourist sights-before the protests began.....Louisville is a pretty nice town and looks like it has made great strides to attract tourists and revitalize their urban areas.
These two stopped by the house before we left for Louisville. Little Jaymie seems to love riding with Ben!
The flowers are finally getting going! I so love these iris that DD my wonderful gardener planted. They are coming on strong!
Ok, all caught up now, not much else going here, just work, work, work!
