Today we transversed accross Kentucky and ended up southern part of Missouri. I now remember that the reds and oranges are beautiful in this area. Even areas where there is bare trees, the gray colors against these colors would make a wonderful painting. We traveled mostly on interstate, but a short bit on the above Missouri Highway after we crossed the Mississippi River. These lanes are quite tight and we even saw semis on these roads.


Then we came accross fields of these. Cotton fields. Even saw some on roads and then rolled up in rolls like we have hay rolled up. I told my spouse they grow their own cotton for all the quilt shops they have in Missouri.  After we reached our destination we had some strands on windshield and he said here is some thread. 😳

Today was a 6 hour drive with a backup near Lexington for about 45 minutes. Tomorrow is almost 9 hours. We hit the tolls in Oklahoma. When we stopped for gas gots some quarters to add to our dime collection. Final destination is Elk City. Looks like we are escaping the cold weather settling down in  the Midwest. Hopping to catch some 80’s in Tucson in a few day. 
Enjoying the ride and have not done any quilting maybe tomorrow. So far back is doing well. (10 weeks post lumbar fusion)

Happy Quilting to all

  1. I’m so glad you are tolerating the drive so well. Beautiful things all around you. That cotton field looks like all the ones that used to exist on my route to work in Phoenix. Now they are all houses, apartments and shopping areas. It was such a lovely, uncrowded drive back then!
