This and That.....

Took a walking tour of downtown Rochester, Mich. on Saturday with my BQFF Barbara...  This is our (and 16 other people's) guide, Rod. It as a beautiful, warm day and he was fabulous! It started in front of what is now the Rochester Mill Brewery....
which was the largest woolen mill in the country in the 1920's. The settlers built it where 3 rivers came together.
This next building sits on an Indian burial ground and the rows of rocks are from the farmers' fields, who brought them into town when they visited!! The top stones are purposely larger so that to someone looking up from the sidewalk--the stones all appear to be the same size!
On the quilty front--this baby quilt is finished!

The shingles were delivered today!! Jim loved that conveyor belt--no climbing necessary!
And just to show how absolutely wonderful it is here in Michigan this Fall....

Thanks for stopping and letting me share a little of this and that with ya's........Have a great week ahead! :-)
