what an exciting day! I had a blast sharing the love of quilting, shopping, eating and laughing with 6 other friends! It was a fully packed van!
I was on a set budget and did fairly well in keeping in that budget. I purchase 2 items that I wanted to get and an extra bonus item I'm totally in love with. I was good and didn't purchase any fabric --though I came sooo close to purchasing a $150/kit, I did pick up a cheap little $12 kit instead. I got my show pin and a group pin.
Here's my newest booty (l-r: my second thread catcher for my travel hand work bag, a pattern for hanging my pin collection on, my new pins, and my bonus project bag with tons of zipper pockets directly from Pat Sloan---oh did I mention I talk to Pat? :) ) :
And Eva and Laura got me this cute t shirt (I don't own a quilting t shirt):
We had a wonderful time and I think we all did well on our shopping budgets! I think we are done with shows until next year.
We did see a lot of quilts that were shown at the Lancaster Show in April. There was a nice selection of quilts and highly impressed with all the appliqued ones. Here's my gallery of all the pictures I took. I do have last year's pictures still up, if you are interested here as well.
I think my favorite quilt was this one:
We did get our tradition group picture- this one was taken in front of our own guild quilt (Four County Quilt Guild) which we (as a guild) have entered the past two years' raffle quilts for judging into Quilt Odyssey. Eva got a better picture, poor Jane likes to look around when the camera is snapping :) l-r: Donna, Cheryl, Me, Jane, Eva, Pam and Laura (trip virgin to our group) in front.
I'm beat as I'm typing this post up after our trip....Sunday will be recouping day :)
