I Love Basting!

Well, not really. But I did really like Barbara Jackson, so I decided to take a second class with her. Once I saw the project in person, I just couldn't resist.

It's called The Shepherdess Tray and it is much smaller than you think. I think the finishing will be fairly easy too.

On Saturday morning, my mom and I drove to Kansas City. Why? Doesn't everyone go to Kansas City for fried chicken? Okay, maybe most people go for BBQ, but we drove four hours for fried chicken.

My mom wanted to eat fried chicken at Stroud's. Apparently the restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives at one time. Was the fried chicken good? You betcha!

Fried chicken livers and gizzards...not my preference, but my mom loved them!

Winner, winner chicken dinner!

After lunch we visited Old Mill Stitchery in Liberty, MO. Super nice shop!

Too bad that it all had to end. Looking forward to future excursions!

I wonder how far Old Mill Stitchery is from Indy? Roadtrip? :). Love the Barbara Jackson pieces.

Your Mum looks like she is really enjoying the food. The new project looks beautiful.
