I Like Thursday #94

L to R, yours truly, Diann from little Penguin quilts and Sharon Engel, award winning quiltmaker
Welcome to this week's list of likes. Let's start with meeting up with friends!
Through blogging, I have met some mighty fine and fun people, and here are two of them.
The picture was taken by Sharon's husband at the outdoor quilt show this past weekend in Berthoud, Colorado.

We three, Drew Milo and I headed north to the town of Berthoud. It was known in 1900 as a town to help one heal lung conditions, and is now known as a flower center. This show was small but nice in a shady park.
I've never been to Sisters Oregon but it was terrific to see quilts hanging in nature.
Diann blogs from littlepenguinquilts.  We met she and her husband on a trip to Boulder last Spring and have a lot in common. She's so easy to be friends with! We walked around looking at lovely work, some we'd like to try, some we just admired.
Sharon is an award winning quilter, freshly back from Paducah show where one of her recent quilts was shown. What a fun person to know! She was with her husband and daughter, and we all got along famously! Sharon has jollied me along this move, listening and making me laugh when I was closer to tears!
Milo makes a friend

Milo gave them both two paws up!
I liked this santa quilt, and several made with repro well as this modern flower...
great way to use large blocks!
Tired? When we all went separate ways mid day, we continued on to town for a rest
and a bite of lunch amid lush flowers
it was cooked on this... just kidding!
cool outdoor gas stove from days gone by. I like a gas stove but....
I had fun looking thru an outdoor antique store after lunch... remind you of the 60's?
 fancy french cookware from some fancy restaurant I guess...
a few vintage gnomes...  Kind of wanted the rolling trays below
hard work for some...
a small pail with rollers attached
and playtime for others
I love looking at items from years ago, wondering what the people were like that held them
I like old homes too, especially this little house now a barber shop...
Who lived there???
look closely... think it's haunted?
 Now this seems to remind you of time gone by, repairing a clock instead of buying a new one
I love alleyways... behind old homes are cool alleys

We all liked the Italian Ices
Mine was creamsicle  YUM, my favorite flavor of popsicle growing up! Drew got Mango, and Milo had some of each, declaring, well I'll let him tell you
MILO: " is this what you've both been eating while I have kibble?!!! Wha'  the heck! And why didn't you get me one? Not one of the kid size y'all got, I mean POODLE sized? What are you thinking..."

ER, maybe we won't let Milo speak at the moment... I've heard people say they wonder what their dog is thinking... not me... from what I hear in my mind already.
I'll finish my likes with this flamingo-in-a-stump, of course!
Milo's Moment: I loved being with my pawrents and meeting new friends and Aunties! 
I like the sweet icy stuff, and watching kids at the pool...
they won't let me swim... that's profiling at it's worst. I never pee in a pool.
I like shade, and will on occasion pee on these kinds of bushes
LeeAnna's likes... sunset colored roses!!!
Gosh Mama! You had your turn... just because you forgot... okay she also loved the way this tree was trimmed...
and because I love her, I'll let her jump in my post!
Now, stay! clickety click on her links to friends also keeping it pawsitive today!

You have such wonderful towns to visit in your area! An outdoor quilt show? Score. Great post-thanks for sharing it with us. mary

Fun to see the things that caught your eye in Berthoud! I thought you would like that little town. Hope moving is going smoothly!

PaintedThread said...

So much stuff to see! What a wonderful day.

Connie Kresin Campbell said...

Looks like you had a wonderful time and how fun to meet up with a couple other quilters!

Sara said...

Looks like a fun outing for all of you! Where my daughters live, the city pools have a "doggie" day at the end of the season where people can take their pets and only the dogs get to swim in the pool.

The outdoor quilt show made me miss the Quilts & Vines show that used to be held at a local vineyard in the area. The quilts were hung out in the vineyard, among the grapes. It was so much fun.

Suzanne said...

I just meet a new friend, Deanna, who has a quilt blog I follow. How fun you three quilters could get together. I like outdoor shows. I have been to Sisters and it was awesome!

Shannon said...

Those roses are beautiful! So glad you got to meet up with quilty friends- that makes things so nice!

What a fun outdoor exhibit. You know, I've never been to Berthoud! Guess I should take a ride up there and check it out.

MissPat said...

So glad you were able to get together with Diann again. And maybe flamingos are not as unique in CO as you think.

You always seem to have such a fun time on your out n' abouts and find so many cool things! Sorry you couldn't swim Milo! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I would have LOVED seeing all those quilts! I need to find out if there's a quilt show in my area. Love being inspired! Hugs!

Michelle said...

I LOVE quilts! I have several that my grandmother made. She was very talented. Thanks for linking up today and have a GREAT weekend!

Sandee said...

Oh the quilts. Quilts rock and I'm so glad people are still making them.

Milo seems to have had a red letter day. Good job.

Have a woof woof Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

M Dawson said...

You did have an amazing time, I loved seeing the quilts, thank you!

Michele McLaughlin said...

I finally managed a post, but very late.
The quilts outside look wonderful. I guess they are confident it won't rain. I am glad you met up with Sharon and Diane. You look very cute in that photo!

I like looking at old things, too. They are very tempting to buy, but then you find there isn't actually room in the house to show them off.
Not sure if you found this there in Colorado, but when we were living in Minnesota one summer for my husband's job, we went to an antiques place and were amazed at what they called antiques. This was compared to New England where I grew up. Things people in New England still used! or, if not in their house, in their 'camp' - cottage by a lake. Cooking utensils with wooden handles - antique?

Milo sees the neatest things

M. K. Clinton said...

I would have been thrilled to visit there! SO many treasures. ♥

Angie said...

I don't think I have ever seen an outside quilt show. I guess they were confident the weather would cooperate? We've been having some cool weather here, but I don't think that would stop me from enjoying an Italian Ice! Enjoy your week ahead!

Milo is sooo beautiful as are the quilts ~ Milo steals the show, though,

Happy Day to you,

So manny beautiful quilts, that was quite a show!
Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.

Susan said...

That looks like a great way to spend the day - an outdoor quilt show, and fun things to check out in town. Looks like Milo enjoyed himself too!

Pity poor Milo...!
Such an adventure you three had. New friends, old houses and, to me, the best of the 60s. For a while, as they built a new house, my parents had an outdoor stove. When we moved inside, we still had to chop wood because we didn't have electricity yet, and Mom made all our meals on a wonderful old black potbelly stove...true fact. Of course, we were halfway up the mountain then. It's all been built over now. Now and then we'd go down into town for groceries and whatnot, and I remember the soda fountains with those red-topped stools we could spin around on, until Mom made us stop!
Ah, the good old days when I was young. Now that I'm old myself, I try to keep my adventures young.

How fun that the three of you got to meet up and enjoy a quilt show. You had a lot of likes this week. Milo - I think they should let you swim in that pool. You poor fella.
