Last week we headed to Elk River, Minnesota to spend time with Builder Bob’s mother and celebrate her 95th birthday with family. Everyone said to make sure we stopped at SR Harris Fabric in Burnsville, MN so of course we did.

The printed fabric was on sale for $2.99 a yard so I bought 5 yards of it. I also picked up 1 yard of each of the other fabrics to go with it. I have no idea what I’ll make yet.

I picked up some huge spools of rayon embroidery thread. See the little green one in front? That is the size of my rayon embroidery thread on my wall. The shorter spools have 5,500 yards on them and I have no idea what is on the larger ones. These were on sale 3 for $10. I doubt if I will ever have to buy these colors again!

Here you can see the quilt cotton section. All of the fabrics were marked $12.99 a yard and were 50% off that price.

We really lucked out on our drive to Minnesota with beautiful weather and saw many of the trees changing colors.

On Saturday there was a birthday party with about 35 family members attending. This is Builder Bob with his mom and three sisters.

  1. I STILL cannot believe that is all you bought at that amazing store! I do know the fact that store is more than a few hours from my house is a very good thing. LOL Oh boy, I just checked, and both their stores are within about 4-5 hours. Heck, we do that drive going to visit hubby's Mom, or my son where he lives near the law school he just graduated from. 🙂 Ooh, it's doable. LOL

  2. My dad turned 95 in June and we had a wonderful party for him. I am heading to Minnesota next week to visit the grandkids……might have to head to that fabric store. I make my daughter take me to quilt stores all over the state! Always come home with a suitcase of fabric! LOL! 🙂

  3. So nice to be all together on such a nice occasion. Lovely family.

    I love to see family pictures like this

  5. Looks like you had an amazing trip in every possible way. So glad a good time was had by all. Love that print fabric and after looking at the photos, I'm amazed you got out without buying more!!

  6. Those are wonderful photos. Happy birthday to Builder Bob's mom!

    Great stop along the way too.

  7. 95 is an amazing milestone and how special that she was able to celebrate with family. SR Harris is a favorite stop for one of my besties whenever she visits her grandchildren in the area. She raved about the selection and the prices.
