Batik Stars, Abilene trip & a Wind Farm on the way
It is a glorious Saturday morning here in north Texas. It is only 73º so far. Can you tell I am ready for fall? Yesterday was a very full day for us. In the morning I worked on some batik stars for a new twin size quilt. The batiks are Dreaming in Color by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda fabric. I really like the cheery blues and yellows.
In the afternoon we went to Abilene, Texas for some business but then we had to have some fun. We drove to the small town of Buffalo Gap, Texas
where the famous Perini Ranch Steakhouse is.
The grounds are peaceful.
The decor inside is very eclectic. This is 7 foot rattlesnake ski tanned on a board.
Have you ever seen a jackalope?
This bison head was watching us eat.
Our appetizer was Jalapeño Poppers. Jalapeño peppers stuffed with cream cheese wrapped in smoky bacon and grilled. Second course was a blue cheese salad with roasted pecans. We split a 16oz rib eye steak with ranch potatoes and still brought some home to enjoy today. We did save room for desert by bringing home some of our steak. Strawberries with sugar biscuits and real heavy cream poured over it all. This was not a heart healthy meals but it was wonderful! They also raise a few pump jacks on the property.
There were some very interesting buildings in Buffalo Gap
I took pictures of the wind farms on the way home.
These windmills are huge!!! It is kind of freaky when you first see them.
This shows the wind farm with the sun setting behind.
It was good to get home. More sewing today.
