Where do I start? As always, the show quilts were unbelievably gorgeous. The vendors were all so tempting. The crowds were as large as I can remember having seen them. Prior to arriving at the show, I wondered how the economy and problems with the Executive Inn would affect attendance and I was very happy to see the huge crowds.
Ruthie, Becky, Elaine and I met at Hancock’s on Wednesday afternoon. Since I was feeling very committed to not buying fabric, I went in and said hello to everyone, left Elaine with Becky and Ruthie and I went to Kroger for groceries. Then I drove out to our cabin and mom and dad had just arrived.
Unfortunately the very committed to not buying fabric feeling didn’t last through the entire show.
Dad was given his quilt on Wednesday. As usual, he’s very excited over receiving a quilt. See the excitement on his face?
Oh . . you’re having a hard time seeing his enthusiasm over having received a quilt I made him? Here . . see how excited he was when I gave him his green cat quilt a couple of years ago?
OK . . maybe the excitement doesn’t show up well in the photographs! 🙂 Dad did love his quilt. He had seen it on the internet as he reads the blog, and the picture was actually taken on Friday night when we were all pretty exhausted.
There’s so much more to share . . later. I’m tired!
