Early Morning Departures & We Didn't Mean to Be Gone All Day

IMG_0331 This is Ashley & Brian Loftis.  They are twins.  They really love each other but they just don't know it.  They are from Gastonia, NC. They came on the trip with Vickie & Tim who are good friends of their parents.

Image1 I just realized I did not have a picture of Tim & Vickie Ederidge from Greenville, NC together so I made one.IMG_0421 Jimmie & Betty Hardy from Greenville, NC & Sue & Lendy & Sue Edwards from Shalimar, FL.  Betty and Sue are sisters.  They headed for Canada this morning.

All of these left today along with Gayle & Clifton (picture yesterday).

Today was grocery shopping day and Sharon, Lois & I decided to go to Butte. On the way we stopped in Silverstar at a antique yard sale. I had heard about a quilt show in Whitehall and that was right on our way so we stopped there.  The town of Whitehall was having Frontier Days complete with craft vendors & a parade.  We shopped the vendors and went to the quilt show but got out of town before the parade started.IMG_0425 This was my favorite quilt in the show.IMG_0426 I liked this one too.IMG_0429 IMG_0430 This was the guild fabric challenge.

IMG_0437 As we were leaving we looked across the street and there was a quilt shop so of course we had to visit it.  That's my friend Lois making a purchase.

Then we were on our way to Butte.  Just on the edge of town we saw a Garage Sale sign. We had heard there were a few thrift shops in Butte so we made some stops before getting to the grocery store.

This is my yard sale and thrift store buys for the past three days.
