It’s hard to blog about a trip like the one I just took, because so much happens, and it’s all so fun, and I’m so busy I forget to take pictures, and how do I pick out just a few things to tell about? Such a quandary . . .
I got there on Thursday afternoon, and hooked up with Victoria right away. She and I spent time browsing through some of the vendors and looking at some of the show. We also swung by the Alliance for American Quilts booth so I could meet everybody and find out what I would be doing and where I needed to be on Friday to help out with the Q.S.O.S. project.
If you haven’t heard about the Q.S.O.S. project, I urge you to go to the Alliance’s web site and read up on it. It’s a wonderful project, and I’m so glad that I volunteered and helped them out with some small piece of it while I had the chance. I got to meet and make several new friends because of it.
On Friday, we were joined by our other friend, Shelly.
I was wandering around one day through the vendors, just minding my own business, and ran smack into a group of my friends from home! I didn’t even know they were going to be there! It was fun to see them.
And I suppose you want to see what I bought, right?
Sure you do . . .
I only bought a total of 1 1/2 yards of fabric, so I didn’t do too much damage to my stash report that way. I bought some metallic ink, and can’t wait to play around with it on some fabric to see what I can come up with.
And I bought some rulers for my longarm. I’ve been wanting these for a long time, and I finally gave in and bought them. I know I’ll be glad I did.
See? Very well behaved at the vendors. And really, I spent a lot of time helping out with the Q.S.O.S. project, which was fun, and looking at the quilts in the show. That’s where I really get inspired, and then I can hardly wait to get home and get back to quilting.
So that’s where I am today — home and back to quilting.
