Corbin Mills and American Whatever
If your in the neighborhood of Liberty, Missouri and you like cross-stitch or rughooking or for that matter just a good piece of pie you'll want to stop by Corbin Mills. Inside the doors you'll find a little bit of heaven!
Let me introduce you to Sandy Williams. She told me she gets up early in the morning cooks her husband breakfast and then comes down to do some cooking for her restaraunt. She cooks all the homemade pies...the restaraunt was already closed when we arrived and the pie was gone :( I've got to go back she has homemade coconut pie! Sandy told me to go ahead and go inside the restaraunt and look around she has hooked rugs inside the restaraunt, too! She hooked each and every one and she keeps a little photo album of all her rugs with a little history about each one.
I wish I would have asked her how many rugs she has hooked but from just what she has hanging it's a LOT!!!
She has many different rugs from lots of different designers. This paticular one is by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm called "Give Thanks" and when I saw it I knew I had to buy the pattern!
I thought this was a very clever idea...a bookcase turned up with legs added then wood to separate the shelves into bins to hold different colors of woolley worms.
It was kind of sad to see our trip come to an end but then again I'm sure there will be many more adventures to come.
I'll be gone for a few days to have some maintenance on the ol' ticker and when I get back I have some wonderful goodies to share with you that some friends have made! There is nothing like getting handmade gifts until then....
