Quilt Show and Heritage Festival



It was a great weekend to be in Maple Creek...

Wouldn't you know it.... they had two quilt shows going on!!

There was quite a few antique quilts at Kelli Dee's Floral


as well as a mix of other quilts....










Including 3 of mine!!

My Infinity Quilt


and a herd of cows!!
HER - ford and Speckled Park


There was also a quilt show at the Jasper Center

It had a showing of Canadian Quilts for the 150


How cute it this in all the colors....





as well as some other quilts






The Jasper Center is a museum. 

It once was a school and now it takes you back into the wild west!

Very representative of Maple Creek, Sk


All kinds of brands from the ranches around there...


all kinds of bits and a full room of saddles


Horse shoes of every size...


 Who knew there were this many kinds of barbed wire???




This is only three pages of the 10 that were there!!

I loved this collection of hats....


I think she gave the queen a run for her money!!


It was a cool step back in time!!


I can't even imagine wearing this with the heat wave we have going on!!

I loved this class room with all the different size desks


The Fleming family donated a room full of history


Cute bassinet....


I was starting to get scared when I realized I have this doll
(was my mom's)


and this chair


and this machine...

 

Is my house starting to look like a museum???

I loved these blue enamel ware.

How come I never have the cute stuff??


This washer is quite the spiffy unit with all the folk painting on it.

Still beautiful!!


But I like the little button on my washer that says 'ON'

Good times...

Ghost Town Blues 2017

Crazy.....
 it's been a year since our first stay 
at

We went back this past weekend....

Cowgirl Deluxe
We loved it so much we booked again for 2018!!
 

Every cabin and wagon has it's own unique character
 
Robsart Cabin
Owner, Greg Hisey has done an amazing job with his eye to detail...
 
We used the church to its full potential starting with breakfast 
and
ending the day, playing cards into the night!!

The dogs, Brewer and Molly were just as glad to see us all again.

We played them out throwing the stick!!
 

Bink was there to greet us with his smiley face.
 
 
This was our room in the Hatton Cabin this year.

So cute!!
Hatton Cabin
My sister, Larissa and Shaun came to hang out with the Marcottes
They stayed in the Senate Sheep wagon.

A little tight for a guy whose over 6'....
 

When Shaun went for breakfast one morning,

he unknowingly locked the door on his way out.
 
 
Larissa tried texting him.

She heard a ding in the wagon....that's not going to help..... he left his phone in the wagon.
Senate Sheep Wagon

She texted me next 
but
 I had to get a pic before releasing her!!


We had fabulous weather with a quick shower of rain....
 
to beautiful sunsets every night.
 
We had supper one night at The Star Cafe in Maple Creek,Sk
There are so many nooks and crannies to sit and hang out in the summer breeze

It was great to hang out with my sister for the weekend at such a great venue.

Larissa and Christa 


We also took in the quilt show and Heritage Festival in Maple Creek...

 Till tomorrow....Stay cool!!
