I'm home, I'm home!! No ruby slippers to click heels together, but none-the-less, I'm home!
I had the BEST time in MD.....
On the way home I drove a different route than I-95, the way I went up. I think I learned that I don't LIKE going I-85...bleeechh! It added more time to the drive, the whole thing was at 10mph or more slower than I-95 and there was construction zones.
BUT! It did get me to Mary Jos and the Longcreek Mills thread outlet! :cD
I didn't do too much damage. I bought some shirtings for backgrounds and fat quarters to round out some color areas where I am falling short in variety. I really had to restrain myself though, because they had the whole collection of Charleston IV by Judy Rothermel, as well as the PA Dutch chrome yellows, poison greens and turkey reds that I love so much. I kept thinking of what I already have in these colors waiting for me at home and need to plan a quilt to USE what I have, and THEN go buy more. I really did restrain myself well.
I bought some Amish solids in various colors....they have a remnant bin and the prices for solids are always so cheap. I love how quilting shows up on these and I want to do some more Amish type quilts.
Everything is STILL in my car...I just grabbed my duffel bag with my clothes and toiletries and figure the rest can wait for tomorrow. I will post some workshop pics here so you can get an idea of what went on! These were sent to me by Linda Harvan who was instrumental in setting up the whole trip. Thank you Linda!
Also special thanks to Kathie for the terrific lodging and great meals! The bed in her guestroom is like sleeping on a cloud....it was WONDERFUL!
I'm sure I'll think of other things to post when I am not so bleary eyed!
A tired but happy,
