My friend Judy and I had a good time together. It's the first time we had met in real life. We have been friends on the Quilting Haven forum for some time now. So it was fun to get to meet and spend 3 days together.

We spent Wed doing some geneology stuff for Judy and we went to Kalona to the Quilt Museum there. It was fun and interesting.  Then we went to Mt. Pleasant's (Iowa) Old Thresher's Reunion. We watched horses pulling equipment to thresh wheat and one horse pulled the drill to drill water. Another horse walked on a wooden tread mill to power another thresher machine.  We toured the craft barns and rode the ground train all the way around the grounds which are extensive.  It was tiring and it got hot before we left but we enjoyed ourselves.

Judy has gone on home now after spending a few days with her daughter in Decorah Iowa. Hopefully we will be able to get together again one day and do some other site seeing.

Hope you all are enjoying cooler weather. If not it shouldn't be long now as fall is almost upon us here in Iowa anyway.

Wishing you sunshine and laughter!! God Bless~~
