My flight home wasn’t until three o’clock on Monday morning so Laura and I decided we had time for a little road trip!
We didn’t set off until a very civilized ten thirty so I had plenty of time to pack my bags and eat breakfast before we hit the road for Crookston, the home of This is Sew Broadway.
Remember Jenn? She was one of the vendors at the conference.Such a pretty shop.I do like displays although Jenn apologized she hadn’t had time to return everything to its rightful place after her weekend in Grand Forks.What was this by the door?I’d been there!
I found a license plate I needed….and some souvenirs of past Minnesota Shop Hops.We weren’t in North Dakota any more.
The sun was shining so I snapped a picture of Laura outside the store,
before I wandered up the street to take a few more pictures. Here’s Crookston Post Office,and the newspaper offices.There have already been frosts in town but this hardy geranium was still flowering in a tub on the street!Time to get back in Laura’s van.Laura has her own on-line business at myveryownquiltshop.com . She specializes in her favorite batiks. It keeps her very busy so it was very kind of her to take the day off to drive me around!
Off we went, on our way to the airport in Fargo, over the bridge…where we stopped to get a better view of the Red Lake River.Just an hour or so to the airport. We found a passer-by to take our picture.Can we just say it was windy?!!
A final shot out of the window as I took off.But where was Steve at O’Hare? Apparently he was in a meeting…
He did eventually turn up but without enough gas in the tank to get us home… We took an interesting route, avoiding the highway and looking for a gas station. We found one with less than ten miles to empty. Steve likes an adventure? We didn’t run out completely so what was the problem?
I’m just about ready to fly to Houston today. Just a few last minute odds and ends to throw in my suitcases. I’ve got three to check and one to carry on. Quilt Market and then twelve events at Festival are going to keep me busy.
