Something I enjoyed in the small town in Kansas where my younger son lives is this building -
It started out as one of the 1,689 Carnegie Public Libraries built around the United States by a philanthropist and businessman named Andrew Carnegie between 1883 and 1929. According to this article from NPR, he was once the richest man in the world and he gave his fortune away to fund public libraries across our country!
Nowadays, this building is the Carnegie Arts Center in Goodland, Kansas. We took a walk over to the Arts Center last Saturday afternoon and went in to visit the exhibit that is there for the month of April. I like this painting that I found there. I can see turning this into a quilt, can't you?!
Whenever we are with our kids, we play a lot of games. We really like card games like Cribbage, Skipbo, and Phase 10!
I arrived home to a package on my doorstep!
It was the fabric I had ordered from Connecting Threads last week. They had a sale going on that I couldn't refuse! It's the last bit of Amanda Jean Nyberg's Good Neighbors fabric. At somewhere in the "neighborhood" of $2.50 a yard, I decided to stock up! The stripey yardage is going to become the backing to the Scrap Jar Stars quilt I've been working on.
And also greeting me when we got home the other day is this pretty daffodil - just about the last one to bloom in my Spring garden. So pretty!
Happy Thursday! Thanks for visiting my I Like Thursday post! Thanks, as always, to LeeAnna, at Not Afraid of Color for hosting this weekly blog hop!
