The Black Hills are so beautiful. Being half Norwegian and half American, I think it's the perfect spot for me! We met up with my brother, his wife and their kids and spent six days touring the Hills, caves, the lakes, the ATV trails, the train, the towns and of course a few quilt shops. My pictures of the shops were on my phone and have somehow disappeared...I think my four-year old Iphone addict may have had something to do with them disappearing.
The Hill City shop closed its doors on June 12, 2012, and I heard that store was great. I got to two Rapid City stores...Thimble Cottage and Quilt Connection, Etc. and The Bakery in Belle Fourche. I came home with this from the Bakery
and this from Thimble Cottage
|Like I need any more Kansas Troubles fat quarters!|
I was able to finish my hand embroidery on our vacation...one good thing about a 14 hour drive with four kids...and I pieced the inner part of the wall hanging today.
Now all that I have left are the borders. Should be done by Christmas!
