Two More Hours!

I have about 2 more hours until I head out for Pickens, SC to meet with the Upcountry Quilter's Guild! We are meeting at a place called Tony's for dinner before my lecture/trunk show at their guild meeting tonight.

I'm spending the night at a guild member's home. I love doing this. It is so fun to see other people's quilts in their homes, how they display things, what their sewing space is like. And of course spending time WITH quilters one on one is great.

The car is loaded...OH MY. I must have 200 lbs of quilts in the car! But they said that there was no such thing as too many quilts in a trunk show, so I'm taking a lot :c) Even the ones that are washed and worn and have been used on beds have a story to tell.

I'll be back tomorrow in time for my afternoon massage appointments. I'll have to leave recovery until thursday!

I wish (and half the blogging community,) that I could be there too, I'm sure you'll be great. I hope you have a wonderful time talking to like-minded people and you get a good recovery time on thursday; then you can breathe a huge sigh of relief.
