My sister and I went to Road yesterday..man was it crowded...we got there right when they opened and the parking lot was already full!!!! so we parked in a lot across the street....then we stood in a line that was aobut 1/2 mile long!!! we had already bought our tickets too, there was another line to buy tickets just as long! I tell ya, even in a bad economy....quilters will spend money...lololol.....
The first booth we rushed to was Primitive Gatherings and it was STILL packed. I took no pics but my sister did and when she uploads them I will post them:)
Found this tote bag kit right next door at quilt soup! She designs the happiest fabrics ever!!!! DID NOT need a tote, but could not pass up this kit, its so cute!!!
Arent these some happy fabrics!!!!!
Bought a few patterns...did not need them either...but you know how it is....waiting for that rainy day....
Promised myself I WOULD NOT buy any wool....and I almost didnt.....but...well.....you know....
I didnt buy much, I was prepared to spend a boatload,I had seen an iron at the Long Beach show and didnt buy it, and I decided to get it yesterday but they werent there. Im so sad, I dont even know the name of it, its like got a heavy duty shot of steam...does it sound familiar to anyone???? they were at the Long Beach Quilt Festival....and the iron is around 200 bucks? oh well...you snooze you lose:(
I tell ya I have a new addiction.....one of many I know...Pinterest....omg have you been there yet???? what a time suck!!!!! LOVE it!!!
when am I going to learn the piano, learn to crochet, learn everything on my list, and sew everyday...with all these distractions????
my husband and I lost a good friend this week and her funeral is tomorrow....she had luekemia, and my hubby had been donating blood, a certain kind I dont know how to spell so I wont try, but he went to City of Hope EVERY WEEK....she had a bone marrow transplant and somehow all the chemo and radiation just weakened her to the point she couldnt make it. She was a teacher and very much loved. She and her hubby have been our friends for 40 years, her hubby and mine are fraternity brothers. My friends, theres a lot of petty stuff going on out there....but life is short and full of surprises, so never take anything for granted...love like theres no tomorrow!!!! Last year I eliminated a lot of baggage from my life...this year I will work on forgiveness...it all seems so small and minor in the grand scheme of things!!!!
This week I RESOLVE to put all the petty crap in a box and stick it in a corner...and focus on loving the people in my life that deserve it...and hopefully before the year is over, I will be able to throw that box away!!!!!
Have a great weekend peeps!!!
