A good way to start the weekend is with a good book and I highly recommend "The Truth According To Us."  It is an epic family novel set in Macedonia, West Virginia and is narrated by several characters.  As with all families...there is history...good, bad, tragic and still there is love.  If you haven't read her other book "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" it also is a must read!

I woke up yesterday with a need for a road trip so HH and I decided to head over to Prineville.  It is a town about 45 minutes from us and when you drop down the plateau into town you feel for a moment like you are in a Western Movie.  The Fabric Stalkers in recent years rent a house outside of town for a Spring retreat.  Our next one is in April (I can't wait!!!)  I always get a lot done at this retreat and we always stop at The Quilt Shack

The owner is a sweetheart!!! and you feel like family when you walk through the door!!!  They have such a variety of fabrics that there is really something for everyone.  So, if you need a nice ride in the country you must add The Quilt Shack to you agenda.  Stopping for lunch at Dillon's Grill will help you build up your energy for shopping!

Enjoy the slide show!  Have a wonderful weekend and 
we'll see you back here on Monday!
