The girls and I headed over to Shenandoah to be "ladies who lunch" today. Small town Iowa usually is limited to some good diners, but lucky us, we have the Sanctuary--a church turned elegant restaurant. I even had to take a picture of my lunch--asparagus quiche and the Sanctuary salad, the odd but delicious combination of greens, bananas, cranberries and raspberry yogurt.
After lunch, back to Clarinda, stopping out in the country just outside College Springs to visit the best little quilt shop in Iowa, The Quilt Coop. Chicken coop turned fabric store, this is why I love Iowa. It was shop hop day and we got there before the busload of quilters, whew!
