A photo gallery of my spin back across the threshold of the Midwest. Donald at Car Mart in Kirksville, Missouri stepped up and donated a Missouri license plate to my collection. “Bet you can’t wait to get back home to your bubbler,” he said.
I thought that was hilarious. Usually people say something about sleeping in my own bed.
Met Ellen during a break in Greentop, Mo. She ran a quilt shop with her daughter in law. “This building has a lot of history,” she said. “It used to be a motel, a grocery, a barbershop….”
Ellen talked about the changes in quilting and how ‘machine quilting’ provided so many more options and designs.
She had some of the most expensive equipment in the county.
Ellen also talked about her in laws who both had memory-care issues. “It takes a lot out of someone who is the caregiver,” she said.
