    Sharon and I met yesterday in Louisville and we had a GREAT time!!! We hit a few fabric shops, did a few touristy things, and then my son bought us a wonderful dinner :D :D :D This shop had a wall of fabrics $2-$5 and another wall of $1 FQ's. They had the most awesome and extensive selection of cheater panels that we had ever seen, too!!! The staff and other shoppers were pretty friendly, and I would highly recommend this shop to anyone in the Louisville area 8) 8) 8)

    This shop had entered quilts in a show last week I believe they said and they had 3 of their quilts place in the top 8 catagories.

    This is primarily a shop that sells smocking supplies, The Smocking Shop, but they had a piece of fabric I just HAD to have in the quilting section... and very good prices on stabilizers and other notions too. They have a fabric section that is buy one yard and get one free... :D This is in Louisville, too.

    After going to a brand new JoAnn's we went downtown to 4th Street Live...walked around and Sharon and I took some pictures, people watched LOL and then had a wonderful dinner at Sully's. She will be posting these when she gets back home :wink: Sully's is celebrating their 5 year anniversary so we wore the hats to help celebrate LMBO and the second picture was at the end of our day in Louisville 8)

    I like to have coffee on the back porch and these little guys keep me entertained!!! They fight, chase each other in fun, and give all of the neighbor dogs fits LOL
    The hawk is kind of hard to see...He just swoops in out of no where in the afternoons... I am sure looking for the squirrels and rabbits running through the yards.

    I love watching squirrels! I think they are so funny!
    When we lived in CT, I had an arch in the front yard. The windows in our living room were 3 huge floor to ceiling types. I put the arch in the middle of them and then grew morning glories and trellising roses on them. I would hand a bell bird feeder from the middle so the cats could have their "cat tv". Well, one day a squirrel jumped on it and the cats were mesmerized. Hubby saw the squirrel and went out and shook the arch. Sill squirrel hung on to that bell for dear life as it was twirling around the center rung. I stood yelling at him to stop...ok, in between the laughs. It was just hysterical. Poor squirrel never came back into the front yard again. I wonder why? lmao
