I feel so guilty!

Man I feel so guilty! I should never have told you about Mount Sunflower since you all simply do not know better! While Kansas does have some very hilly areas and even some trees, I'm sorry to have to tell you that Mount Sunflower is not really a mountain. It is simply the highest elevation in Kansas and if you go here, you can read about it and see pictures!!! Check out the railroad spike sculpture. How to get there? Just take the only road north out of Weskan.

Here's a Kansas joke: What is the state tree of Kansas? (Answer at the end of this post)

Since we're having a guest this weekend, I'm going to spend part of the day cleaning tomorrow. Another part of the day, my husband and I are going out for lunch and probably will browse through an antique mall and drink coffee at Barnes & Noble. Notice I plan to have my entire house cleaned before lunch! Then in the evening, we're taking our guest out for dinner at a new restaurant in town.

I told you all my plans for tomorrow just to let you know that I'm not going to have enough time to finish my project. This will be the first week I haven't finished a string project.

So, ta da! You asked for it and here it is ... a photo of my project's bits and pieces. Thats the back side if you haven't figured it out. Kind of embarrassed about all the birds nests on there. Looks like I could use a refresher course on pressing too.

As soon as I sew it all together, I'll post a photo and explain why an e-mail from Gerry inspired me to make this project!

OK, so what is the state tree of Kansas?

The telephone pole! Anyone who has ever driven across Kansas on I-70 would probably agree with that. I'm afraid I don't know what the real state tree is.

I think I've been getting a little too crazy here lately so its back to my respectable self as soon as possible.


  1. Why - I like the 'little bit crazy' you. And I love the unbiased descriptions of Kansas. OK, so turn it over so we can see it. Enough with the theatrics!!! LOL
