Another New State

Abita Springs, Louisiana High 66 Low 46

We left Mississippi fairly early this morning after a cool night. We drove for about 2 hours with a stop at the Louisiana Welcome Center. We got to the RV Park at about noon. This is the earliest we have ever been to a RV Park. The information on the Park said check in was 4 PM, so I thought I better call, and was told to come in anytime.

We are at the Abita Springs RV Resort. It seems to be a nicer Park than some we have stayed at in the last while. We will be here three nights. This Park has a nice big Club House with quite a few activities going on each day.

Since we got here so early, we decided to go see a couple of quilt stores that are nearby. The first had some quilts designed by a local quilt designer. As it turned out, she was at the store and we got to meet her. Her name is Cherry Guidry. I haven’t looked up her website but we the name of her book Celebrate the Seasons. They seemed to have the same basic design, but were a little different for whatever the season.


Cindy found some fall fabric to buy, and as we were leaving, there was a case with hand embroidery floss that was free. The cashier said that it was always nice to get free stuff. I joked with her that it really wasn't free as we had spent $100 with them. She told us to help ourselves. Cindy got a good assortment of colors. This store was having a birthday sale and is a very large store.

In the first store there were different reasons to buy material posted. We didn't find them all, but the ones we did find were funny.
Remember, this is Louisiana!

This would work in Utah.

The second store was more of a sewing machine store, but outside they had some selves with free buttons and free 8 inch zippers. Again we got a good assortment of colors of buttons and zippers. It was nice to find some free notions at 2 different stores.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. It's true you know!! The reason I had such a hard time going through Kansas tornado alley was because I didn't have enough weight in my rig. Another 14 quilt kits would have helped considerably!!!
