Welcome to Boonsboro, Maryland. This is the sign at the street that turns down to the park. Course the building beside it is the town laundrymat.
Sorry I have been a week getting these pictures in and writting. Time just seems to fly by and when you get called about every fifteen minutes to get something, it's hard getting anything done.
Here is the butterfly I talked about before. Ours has swans on either wing. This stands a good 5 feet and is in a concrete base. Every butterfly that was made is different and made out of different materials. Some with designs made of glass. I'm just glad that Boonsboro has one.
Across the steet is the restored Trolley station. It ran between Hagerstown and Frederick. The tracks were where the street is. Probably why our main street is a little wider than a lot of old towns.
This is the front of it and hard to believe that 10 years ago it was a storage for feed at the Hardware store, now gone.
This is the main room inside, Turn around and there was a pot belly stove and the rest of stuff which was for the comfort of the station master. Didn't get any other pictures as there were too many people in the way.
A stroll down the road and we're in the park and this day it was packed with people and stands etc. This is the stream that run through the park. The water comes from a spring under an old home on main street.
This lady makes bird houses out of gourds. Really neat.
I really have been getting some sewing and quilting done. Here are the results of this past week.
This is from a kit I got at the retreat. We were each to make up a kit and then we exchanged them. Mine came from the other Eileen in the group and is called This and That. She had a package of Charms from Wildfower Serenade and two Kansas Troubles Fat Quarters. I machine quilted it yesterday and got the binding whipped down while watching the Redskins.
This I have shown as a top a couple months ago. Made from leftover HST It's all TB and machine quilted also.
I now want to get the butterflies pinned and quilted next. Kim is sending me some black wool for the antenna's
Hubby has been pretty good except for the nights that he can't sleep then wakes me fairly often. But we tried a sleeping pill last night and he only woke once and called. We just take one day at a time. Thanks for all the concerns. We are fine.
