Dennis Green Valley Daycation

Here is some pictures of Dennis Green Valley Daycation (some of the girls called it Daycation instead of Vacation) to Blennerhassett Island. We left Extension office at 6:00am. First stop around 10:00am, was at Neff's Country Loft which is a country craft and quilt store. We saw all kinds of primitive crafts and the quilt shop had a huge selection of quilt supplies and beautiful material.

Next we had lunch at Hardee's before going for a 30 minute fiery ride over to the island.

Next we enjoyed a covered wagon ride around the estate before touring the Blennerhassett Mansion.

We then boarded the boat going back across the Ohio River. The sternwheeler departed from Civitan Park in Belpre, Ohio due to the riverfront development in Parkersburg, WV.

Next stop was to the Museum. Most interesting thing for me at the museum was a Double Wedding Ring quilt. It was different because the middle of the ring was square and another thing was fasinating the quilting wasn't 1/8 inch apart and some of it even closer. We even went back to the Country Loft a second time before leaving town.

Some of the girls had bought flowers from a greenhouse next door to the Country Loft giving us good excuss to go back. I got a package of Quilt Patis, the green fabric and ordered a stileto first time. Next time I got a cheater panel, and two other pieces of fabric. Also, I just couldn't leave without two patterns.

We stopped in Mineral Wells and ate at Cracker Barrel before coming home. We arrived back at Extension office around 11:00pm. All had a great time! Thanks to Debbie for planning this trip for us.
