We are visiting our youngest son and his family in Kansas and it snowed all day Sunday and has had temperatures in the 20s.  The boys have had fun playing in the snow and we were able to go to their school Christmas concert.

A couple days ago I went to the local quilt shop, Quilt Head Quarters in Overland Park, Kansas, and bought a couple items.

I also went to the Legler Barn Museum in Lenexa, Kansas.  The barn was built in 1864.  Usually, on Wednesdays there is a group of quilters there hand quilting.  I was unable to see them because they were on a break for the holidays, but the barn was very interesting and there were several quilts hanging up there,

Crazy Quilt - see description below

It's a small museum, but very interesting.  I found out that Lenexa, Kansas is the Spinach capital if the USA!  Who Knew?  I even bought a cook book in which every recipe contains spinach.  Thought I would try some of them out.

We've had a great visit with DS, DIL and 2 adorable grandsons.  They are sweet boys, aged 9 and 11. We are leaving today for Florida.


  1. What an interesting bunch of quilts in that old barn museum! Thanks for sharing. Glad you've had a good visit with family there. Hope you have a safe trip on to Florida, and then back home to Oregon! I know you'll enjoy seeing more family in Florida. You're brave to make such a long trip this time of year. Wish you could stop by Texas. I think it would be too far off track, but you know I'd love to see you. Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! ---"Love"

  2. How fun to be able to spend the holidays with family! I love going to new-to-me quilt shops! Love the barn too!!

  3. What a fun trip! My uncle and aunt live near that quilt shop and I think I've been there on a family reunion trip! But the barn...hmmm...perhaps an outing for the next time reunion is held there?! Safe travels to Florida!

  4. What a great stone barn and nice Quilt Museum. I love to examine off the beaten path places when traveling.
    wonderful to visit the family and see the kids at their concert.
    merry Christmas

  5. Great to be with family this special time of the year.

    Always fun to to explore a quilt shop!
