When in Dublin, Ohio ----



If you ever find yourself near Columbus, Ohio ----


You MUST stop to wander through the “Field of Corn”!!

This is one of those “Things that make you go “Huh?!”

or --

One of those things that makes you think “REALLY!?”

Or ----

Make you wonder if you somehow missed a turn and found yourself in Iowa by mistake ;c)

We passed these sculptures yesterday after 4 of us left Bonefish with dinner filling our bellies to way-too-full! I did a double take!

I just think oddities like this are so fun ---I know, kinda CORNY, huh?!

((Yeah, and you just knew I was going to say that!))

Photos are not mine ---I had to search google!

There are 109 giant ears of concrete corn in in Sam and Eulalia Frantz Park. Awesome!

I just finshed going over the final pdf copies of the pages for my next book. Oh – it’s BEAUTIFUL! Just wait till you see it! I don’t want the summer to go too quickly, but I also can not wait for July and the book release to get here.

I’ve got just 30 minutes before Catie picks me up to do some more sight seeing, and then off to a dinner with the guild ladies, and finally a lecture/trunk show tonight for the Common Threads quilt guild in Columbus!

  5. Welcome to my city! I would have loved to been in your workshop, but had to work. Make sure you see the brand new Nationwide Children's Hospital almost ready to open. That is where I work. It is beautiful!

    I'm like you're first response. I thought immediately of a cemetery! Perhaps a cemetery just for farmers like my father was. He would have like that.
    I can't wait for your book. I have the other three all autographed so can't miss this one. When can we reserve ours?

  9. Americans like big. The big ball of string, the big muskie (fish) in Wisconsin, there's a big chicken in Atlanta, I'm sure there are more. Must have been mass produced because once you've made one, what's the point of the rest? Maybe some Dubliners could explain the why. Safe travels!
