My sister-in-law drove from South Carolina for a visit with us!! We had a good visit.... our kids and grandkids came over for several visits with her and we went on a road trip to Hamilton, MO. ...the home of the Missouri Star Quilt Company. It has only been in business for maybe 5 years but has grown by leaps and bounds. Most of Hamilton is now quilt stores or rented from the quilt company . The Small Business Association helped them finance the new 42,00 sq ft shipping building. The old library is full of quilting machines where they quilt for customers. Hamilton is also the birthplace of JC Penney and I think the home of his first store. So there must be something in the water!
Now that my sister in law has left and the weather has gotten cold and wet ,I am working on teddy bears and friends for the upcoming " Teddies on Vacation" show. I haven't decided which will be my preview bear...lol ! When I do, I will post a picture and the link.
