Such pretty material. I am starting my Christmas sewing and could come up with many uses. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your give-away. Sherry
Congratulations Sherry! E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. I will send the fabric right out to you!
Don't forget Moda's Country Fair. Visit Camille today.

Rocheport, a small historic town at the halfway point of the ride, is a great place to stop and visit some shops and have dinner. Luckily we were there around 5:00pm when Abigail's opens for dinner. If you are in Rocheport when Abigail's is open make sure to have a meal there. The food is amazing! We were too full to eat desert so carried it with us in our backpack for later at our hotel.

We had dropped our luggage in Booneville, Missouri, earlier in the day at the Hotel Fredrick. I didn't want to carry the extra weight on my bike. (Believe me, my hips are enough weight to pedal around!) This place is very convenient as it's right on the trail. You can tell from the picture it's older....but it really added to the charm. So when we came over the Missouri River into Booneville that night, everything was waiting for us at the hotel. We showered and then went to the bar for some much deserved wine....and of course our desert left over from Abigail's.
The next morning we were up early and ready for another day of biking. The weather couldn't have been better. It was in the 70's. We had to wear jackets in the early morning but the sun was warm and the breeze cool....we hardly broke a sweat.
