A couple of weeks ago, I went to the Reiman Gardens at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. Our first reason for going was the quilt show at the gardens. I have posted pictures of the quilts on another blog, if you would like to look at them, the link is Piecemakers Quilt Guild. Three friends and myself left my house at 7:30 a.m. and headed for Ames. We left early so we could be there shortly after the quilt show opened but there were several quilt shops along the way and they just seemed to get in our way! Our best intentions went right out the window but we had all day so it was no big deal. Right? When we got to Ames, we were all starving so lunch had to come first before the show...we got to the Gardens between 1:00 and 1:30 p.m. so we made good time (not). ;-) After viewing the quilts, we tramped around in and through the gardens in the misty rain and looked at the "bugs". There is a display of wooden bugs, that are 10x larger than life sculptures that were designed by New York artist David Rogers and will be on display until the end of August. Enjoy the Smilebox slideshow and let me know what you think about the bugs!!!
