A Day Out Away From Quilting

Hard to believe that Quilting could ever be too much of a good thing but today I needed a break. There is a re-enactment going on of the 1828 flatboat trip that Abraham Lincoln took from Rockport IN to New Orleans. It was on this trip that the 19-year-old future president witnessed his 1st slave auction while in New Orleans which helped shape his anti-slavery opinions. The replica pioneer-era flatboat was close by on Wed. but I had to work but today it wasn't too far away in Mount Vernon IN so my husband and I went over.
