We are vacationing in Kansas City this weekend. We hopped down to the Country Club Plaza yesterday and were able to get some really great photos of the statues littered throughout the plaza. It was a little humid, but we made it through with a little help from Winstead's ice cream and cheeseburgers :)
Here is some eye candy for you all:
Today we did some shopping related stuff with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. We also stopped by the art museum again today. We ended up in the contemporary collection. They had some lovely impressionist / post impressionist paintings as well.
We stopped by the Yarn Shop And More and Harper's Fabric & Quilt in Overland Park, a yarn and quilt store respectively. Harper's was recommended to my by Tall Prairie Grass Studio, a native. Though she recommended an even better one over in Larwence, KS. I will be unable to visit Lawrence this trip, but loved Harper's.
The staff was friendly and they have a nice selection of fabrics, notions, and patterns in the store. I went away with some Heather Bailey and Amy Butler fabrics. I also purchased the Cabo Halter pattern from Amy Butler. Now I just have to figure out which fabric I want to use it with. I am still glowing with the excitement from my purchases.
We also visited a thrift store. I rescued some sewing books there. I will share some of the pages with you in a later post. They were published in 1987, so some of the photos are pretty funny. The information is still good. I will put them to good use.
