On Friday, my DIL along with 2 grandchildren and I went to Salem to see some historic sites. First we went to the Mission Mill Museum for a short visit. While there my GD got to talking to a book binder and we visited with him for a while. He was very interesting and informative. One of the historic homes wasn't open by the time we got there (guide book didn't have the new times). We did get to see and tour the Bush House Museum. It is a lovely house built in 1877 and our tour guide was excellent. See this link.
In my spare time, I have been doing quite a bit of sewing. I have completed 11 of the Union Blocks from the Gone to Texas quilt. They are very scrappy and I didn't know if I would like them, but most of them look pretty good!
Saturday's civil war block. I'm glad that I have been able to keep up to date on this.
Saturday we went to a local historical museum and we have some other outings planned. We have decided to stay at DS/DIL's longer. Woo Hoo!
