Life is good. Getting to see this quilt from a distance was good. As always there are things I would do differently. Like ribbon candy in the white, and tighter on the other stitching. But ya know what? I love this quilt.
Bruce took a moment to get a photo with me. Note his name tag says Diane. This is sweet. So very sweet.
Linda Lease had two chairs in her booth. Missing “The Doctor is In 5 cents” shingle. There is a moment when a soul connects to soul, the chairs providing the opportunity and those occupying the chairs taking good advantage. The moment over far too soon. Linda’s eloquent words shared on her facebook page.
The quilts stunning as always.

I did bring the camera with me, however it once again remained safely in my backpack. I spent more time talking with people Kim Niedzwiecki, Kelly Ashton, Giovanna and Renee. After the show we had a dinner with Julie and her husband at a place in Manheim called the Cat’s Meow. Such a great day. I had a bit of a scare on the way home. Don’t worry I just freaked myself out momentarily. After chatting with Giovanna for a bit we went back in to the show floor to say good bye to a few people and to do a quick shop I wanted thread and batting. After I bought the batting I put my credit card in my pocket. While my sweetie drove I had this moment where I didn’t remember where it was. So I checked my pocket, weird. Maybe I put it in my purse. Nope. I start freaking out just a wee bit. I figure I’ll deal with it when I get home because if I dropped it somewhere the worst that can happen is…yeah. So I get home and really dig into the pocket, which I discover is deeper than I thought. The card is there, safe and secure.
I’m off to do some stitching on this lazy, beautiful Sunday morning. Rumor has it some thread followed me home. That’ll wait until tomorrow. Seems I left it in the car. Not quite sure how I did that.
