Lake of the Ozarks

 For Spring Break DH and I went to my Cousin's time share at Lake of the Ozarks. I think it's been our third or fourth time there with them. This time we planned to hit the Missouri Star Quilt Company in Hamilton Missouri, and hit it we did!! On the way down, and on the way home!! We toured all the shops AND the Retreat House. Of course we made lots of purchases also!!
 While staying at the Time Share Cottage, the guys golf, and the gals shop or sew.
This photo below is from a magazine (forget which one right now) of a block I wanted to try out. Its another disappearing 9-patch with a few added cuts.
 I brought some of my old fabrics to give it a go to make 4 blocks. 
I don't know what to think of it, other than there is too much pink.
 I did some playing around with the blocks...
 I looked online and found this pic, where the quilter put sashing in between the blocks....
 We'll see what I end up with? I put that bag on the back burner for now. Which I am so darn good at. Always working on something, but not always finishing them in a timely manner. 

Also while in Missouri, we toured one of the many farms down south where the Budweiser Clydesdales are bred. This one was Warm Springs Ranch.
 A lovely tour of the grounds/horses/colts and videos. 
VERY clean and well functioning facility...
 All ending with a beer and a photo op.
