Applique table runner with a pelicanI forgot to share this neat photo of my little pelican on my Folk Art Quilted Traditions table runner. Doesn’t he match perfectly!

Today we are heading out on a little trip to Minnesota to see Builder Bob’s mom, she will be 96 on Saturday. I hope my mind and body are in as good of shape as hers when I am that age. It is a 8 hour drive but…..we will take two days to get there. We have a favorite Meat Market called Nick’s Sausage in Hayward, MN and we will be picking up some meat to take with us.

How did we find this shop…….it is in the same little town as the Calico Hutch which is one of my favorite quilt shops to stop at. It is so much fun to look back at old blog posts and revisit memories! The first time we stopped at Calico Hutch was in 2010 when all of the family got together for his mom’s 90th birthday!

In September of  2013 we stopped at the Calico Hutch again and I picked up all these neat little scrap packs and had so much fun with them! I know we stopped last year but I can’t seem to find a post.

We are taking little Sadie with us so we will stay in Albert Lea, MN which is about half way. We are now looking for pet-friendly hotels……..she has changed our lives!

  1. I have noticed how many of you have made the same runner. But that is ok, the variety of colors shows how versatile the pattern is. Your photo is lovely.

  2. The Calico Hutch is fabulous. It’s been too long since I’ve been there. Hmmm. Have you been to Grubers in Waite Park, MN near St. Cloud? It’s amazing. One of these days I’d love to meet on one of your journey’s to MN. I agree that it’s been a blast to see all the different table runners. AND congrats on making the top 100 quilt bloggers!

  3. The Calico Hutch is definitely a fun shop. I finally got to stop there in September while coming home from a business trip to Madison WI with the hubbie. I know I’ll make a point of stopping again.

    Have a safe trip! Happy birthday to your MIL.

  4. Have a safe trip! I remember turning off I-35 at Albert Lea going to Rochester when I took my late husband to Mayo Clinic so many times. Your little pelican is an amazing match for your runner–looks like you planned it that way???
