West Central Wisconsin
A couple of weeks ago, we took an overnight road trip with friends up into west central Wisconsin.
They still had a fair amount of snow on the ground.
A stop along the way we made was a place called The Highground just west of Neillsville, Wisconsin. We didn't spend much time there as it was extremely damp and cold that morning but hopefully we can make a trip back there this summer via motorcycle to really study all the war memorials on display.
The view from this memorial was gorgeous even on a cloudy, overcast day.
We went on from there to Osseo and had pie at Norske Nook. I don't think I've ever eaten pie at 9:30 in the morning before but oh my gosh, it was some of the best pie I've ever had. Raspberry Cream Pie...mmmmmmm! Norske's Nook is an icon in that area and I didn't even think to take pictures. It must have been the sugar rush I was under!
After our "pie break" we took a wander around and ran across The Quilt Yard. What a nice little quilt shop. One of those shops that make my eyes glaze over and puts me in a quilt trance. I found a really fun panel, a wall hanging pattern, charm pack and some embroidered squares. All of these items I have no real plan for but when you see something different, you have to take advantage, right? One of these days I am going to get back to quilting and sewing. It's been on the back burner since Christmas but it's about time to get back at it.
Signing off for now...
