I recently spent a week in Minneapolis caring care for my youngest grandson while the rest of the family went on Spring Break. One day I went to lunch with a friend there...and then onto the Flower Show at Macy's. What a delight. Susan told me I would smell the flowers once we got off the elevator...and she was so right! The 'layout' of the flowers/shrubs was wonderful and it was being enjoyed by multiple generations. Very nice.
We then visited Glad Creations. It is always good, as a shop owner, to visit other stores. I got a chance to met Nancy, learn about their line of patterns (see Union Star) and see some of her mother's quilts. So...a Bus man's Holiday. The tricky part was explaining this term to the Spanish speaking exchange teacher staying with my daughter!
