Wooling in Williamsburg

My best friend and wooling buddy Kim Benskin and I went on wooling run.  The Woolen Needle in Williamsburg, IA  We live about an 1 1/2 hours from here.  We try to make this trip as money allows!  This store was featured in the Quilt Sampler Fall/Winter 2010 edition. Can you EVER have enough wool.

Lucas' New apartment

My son has been living in a yucky basement in the TKE Fraternity for 2 years.  We helped him move 1 block to his first apartment.  He has 1 semester of college left and then will have a degree in business.  He will be getting married New Years Eve 2011.  His wife Allie will then join him there.  She has a year left to get a major in chemistry.  Allie has plans to get her Masters and maybe a Doctorate in Chemistry.  They are currently going to Truman State in MO.  Who knows where their lives will take them from here.
