You think Saskatchewan has wide open roads...
but in South Dakota.... it's a ribbon of road!!
We spent the weekend in Deadwood, South Dakota.
Deadwood is so rich in history and has such beautiful buildings
It was +15C and gorgeous!!
Arnold and I both had a turn in the money booth at Tin Lizzy's.
You had 30 seconds to catch as much money as can...
and push it through the TINY mail slot!!
When we weren't testing out our luck, we were canyon touring
through Mount Rushmore......
It is an unbelievable accomplishment and work of art!
That was some vision to create such detail out of a wall of rock!
The National Forest signs always make me think of Yogi Bear!
We made just a few stops at some quilt stores....
I was Arnold's sugar momma in return for some shopping time!
Nancy Zieman was spotted in at Junction Fabrics in Sturgis, South Dakota.
At Rapid City, South Dakota, it was Fabric City.
Loved this sign....
It's my #3 word on my list of life goals
#1 and 2 are Simple and Worry-free...
that's what makes it possible to CREATE
Lots of inspiration at this store!
It was a quick stop over at Pearl Louise's Thimble Cottage
This is a beautiful store in a vintage home.
This little tike was found on the store steps this week.
He was scrumptious and I could have taken him home...
if I didn't already have 5 dogs!!!
(that's a story in itself)
In Spearfish, it was Dakota Quilt Company
This is also an amazing store with lots of light and very friendly staff.
Arnold had to wait patiently here as I was having a great time at this store!!
We also stopped at Bakery Fabrics in Belle Fouche, South Dakota.
I even found some inspiration for my compass quilt at one of the casinos
We got home just before the blizzard which hit today.
All the cows look like snowballs.
That is swirling snow on this picture...not a scratched lens!!
Now that all the moms and babies are warm and safe....
I have a new stitching project calling me!!
Thanks for doing chores, Justin & Jeremy!!
