A great morning - beautiful weather, quilt shops, a quilt museum, scones ... We called this morning and ordered scones from Flamingo Row - if you wait for them to open, the scones are gone so you order and go get them before the place opens! They (blackberry scones) were soooooo good!

We went to Hancock's of Paducah. It is big and fun to see everything - I bought very little though! Then we went to Eleanor Burns' Quilt in a Day. It was nice to see but we didn't buy a thing! Ray wanted to see Eleanor and have his picture taken with her.

We walked to the Visitor's Center and the river where we saw the Flood Wall Murals - very impressive.

Then we walked to the National Quilt Museum. Some of the quilts were incredible while I really didn't care for others. Some of the hand quilting was really awesome! On our way back to the car, we stopped at Quilter's Alley. Again I didn't buy anything!!! We had a picnic lunch in a park in the middle of the historic district and then headed south. Tonight we are in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We had dinner at Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q. Good! We just came back from the Stones River Mall - an indoor/outdoor mall.

  1. We ate at a Jim-n-Nicks BBQ in Alabama once and loved it! I wish there were more around, especially up this way. If we had a Jim-n-Nicks and a Sonny's, I'd be set forever!
