Kellie rubbing his nose
Right across from his tomb is Mary Todd's and their sons.
Well after our tour I didn't think they were so cool.
Almost 700 feet up
The shadow of the Arch in the muddy Mississippi River from the top Looking straight down, to look out the windows you had to lean over the wall to look out. I was afraid too many people on one side was heavier and the thing would tip over, lol Notice the teeny tiny windows you have to look out. I was really trying to smile but I thought I could feel it swaying, I really think it was.
My Lewis and Clark movie ticket come in real handy. I had a raw spot and it hurt so bad. We saw the movie, waiting for our turn to go up. They have a really cool museum down under the arch too.
Darn shoes anyway, lol
We then hit the capital, Jefferson City
They had some really cool statues.
Branson, Mo. was our next stop. Kellie and I had our cd's autographed and picture taken with Kelly Bryant.
Here is just some of my stash from a store in Branson, finally a needleshop, right?! I know!
More then half the store on Hoffmans website is closed. I found that out last year on our trip to Florida
A couple Franken-Ort kits; some cupcakes; Cherished Works by With My Needle, 32ct Exampler; rectangle tin necklace for the Hornbook Angel or Miss Mary Mack; Hornbook Angel by Primitive Needle; 36ct light exampler; 32ct Chestnut for Mary Wigham and other misc. things I can't remember, they are already put away where they belong :D
The shop was http://www.ceciliassamplers.com/
They have HTF "And They Sinned" 48.00 and also LHN The Traveling Stitcher kits for 60.00 in stock. I know some of you are looking for them. I will have my ATS for trade when my framed piece is safe with me.
I also shopped in Clinton,Iowa http://www.stitchnandstuff.com/about.htm
For the record folks, I went to my LNS today and walked out emptied handed, Yes! can you believe it. I went in to get Crescent Color Dandelion Stem, I can't find that thread anywhere. I guess I will have to sub it. I needed it for Summer House which I should be stitching on, since I missed last Wednesday.
I better scoot. I hope you liked my little tour. We made it down as far as Arkansas, but that was boring, then headed back. I love my home!!!
