Duck Mountain Getaway

It may be mid summer but it is also time to swathe the rye...should be ready to combine on Monday!
 
Dawson is always exhausted after a day of bunny watching in the tractor...
It is also our annual camping getaway with Arnold's family... This year it's Duck Mountain Park

I like to explore our way to our destinations so we stopped for lunch in Carlyle at Michaels....

Then a quick stop at Sew and Sews to see her new store...

Pretty nice!!!!
I made this quilt some time ago and still love it!!
 
Then it was a quick stop at Colettes Sewing in Yorkton....


Where I purchased the inside panel of this quilt...not sure why but it was calling my name...
 
While Arnold went golfing, Justin and I headed to Swan River,Mb
I wonder if Justins milk cows agree with this slogan ....
The Coop was cool.... It still had clothing and a sewing section at the grocery store
Quite the selection....wish ours still did!!!
The real draw to Swan River was to check out Fabriculous Quilt Store...
I have experienced their booth at shows but never to the store 
It did not disappoint!!! The owners husband was manning the store and did a mighty fine job of hosting us. 
He was an ex cattle farmer turned store owner and was passionate about there venture 
I loved the different taste than the average store. Lots of bright colours 
Lots of samples...
Some Tula Pink....
And some original art work from the owners,,,

It was a fun day!!!

Now back to regular scheduled programming....loons cooing and squirrels chattering

Having a rest...Christa
