I have rarely come to visit my daughter here in Wisconsin without running over to Waunakee (about 10 miles from her ) to visit Millhouse Quilts. A fantastic quilt shop – I would almost refer to it as my local quilt shop LOL except I have to travel 14 hours to get here!! go to the link above and you will see the inside of the shop – an old mill converted into a store. (on their web site if you go to the about us – you can see the inside of the shop through a series of clicks.
I stuck with not getting any fabric unless it was on sale and I found this little bundle of fat quarters that will go with my Japanese Taupe’s for Love Entwined – needles, and batting that I needed to restock as I only have a partial batting left and would have to order on line to get the Quilters Dream that I like. I did noticed that the store had not marked their batiks up to $15 a yard yet like some stores that I have seen the past 6 months or so – most of theirs are still in the 11-12 dollar range. I have two quilt tops at home – Carousel and a 9 patch that are closer to a double size than twin size so I got two double size batting’s. I think I will try to machine quilt the 9 patch but I am not sure on the Carousel yet –

The cheese sign is in the distance from the campground but nearby – but what I wanted to show was this monster custom RV that someone has here at the campground! can you believe this thing – the size of a semi truck!! 3 or 4 slide outs – must be the same size as some very small homes that you see!! Wonder what kind of gas mileage this one gets? They sure can’t get into most state park camping sites I bet! They would have a hard time negotiating some of the roads inside the state parks for sure and to get in the campsite – no way! I have never seen one so large before. (I do wonder how it looks inside – some of the big ones are very, very nice) but I wouldn’t want it – we wouldn’t be able to go to the parks we like.
Today (the 21st) is cold, cloudy and windy – 56 degrees and wind chill in the 40’s I would say.
