We also stopped at my new favorite store in Bemidji, Mattie's Menagerie. I picked up the most gorgeous vintage handmade pillowcases and an antique embroidered one too (I can't resist).
Saturday was the real crazy daze and I had a ball looting Ben Franklin for new kitchen towels to embroider and discount scrapbooking supplies.
Ha! Ann Coulter's book was on the clearance table at Book World:
Dad and I volunteered in the Beer Tent at the Dragon Boat festival and Mom competed on City Hall's team. They placed 40something out of 60. I checked ID's at the door with Mike, the over-the-road trucker. It was a good time and free Blue Moon all afternoon!
Here they are parading in during the opening ceremonies:
Saturday night I went to Green Cheese and found that Amber's road has been paved! She was so proud of her new garden and I thought it was really beautiful. She was digging potatoes for us to take home. Mmmm. Here is her flower and herb garden:
Then, to complete my Saturday of fun I met up with Carolyn and Kate for some dancing at Keg and the Beer Tent again. Here we are ready to go out (along with Kate's roommate Katie):
Sunday, I scavenged veggies from my parent's garden and made the long trip home. Motley needs a traffic light at the Hwy 10 and 210 intersection:
Monday night there is nothing on TV and I wanted some cake, so I made red velvet with homemade powdered sugar frosting.
Last night I laid out my new patterns from Sublime Stitching (yes I ordered more) on my new towels from Ben Franklin. I'll iron them on tonight, cause I will soon be out of projects at work and I can't wait to do some Krazy Kitchen designs. Here are the results of my Country Cool pillowcases:
