Hanging Out in Kankakee
Alex needed to print/sign (in blue)/scan/submit some business documents early this morning, so he located a FedEx Store just 3 miles from a quilt shop north of Kankakee. So thoughtful of him!
In addition to the R-B-R license plate, I was still searching for the exact Moda Grunge I need to finish a project. I was successful at Top Shelf Quilts in Frankfort, IL!
Top Shelf is a lovely little shop in an out-of-the-way suburb of Chicago. The selection was limited, but excellent, and the staff went WAY above and beyond in helping me spend more cash!
The FLW house tour of the day was the Bradley House in Kankakee.

With a special $5 donation we were allowed to take interior pictures. My favorite space was the dressing room with all the built-in cabinetry. (Second favorite was the soapstone sink in the kitchen.)
Again, an excellent tour led by a well-informed guide.
We're in Springfield, IL tonight. The Dana-Thomas house is on the agenda tomorrow. I've seen it twice before and never get tired of it. I've also picked out a quilt shop (or two) to hit before we get to St. Louis tomorrow night.
