When the day’s quilt-doings focus around moving from one hotel in one town to another hotel in another town, there are few opportunities for inspirational photos on this journey!
No note-worthy stitches were sewn today, though I did work on some hexagons a bit.
Instead I thought I would give you a quick glimpse of normal things that made up my day -----minus the DFW area traffic that has us shaking our heads! SO MANY PEOPLE!
The day went like this ---
Sleep In a bit!
Eat breakfast and pack up.
Grab lunch at a Thai place with Janet!
ME! Green Curry Bento Box!
Janet! Drunken Noodles Bento Box!
((How many of us are only familiar with the term “BENTO BOX” because there is a quilt pattern named after it??!))
Early Happy Birthday to my poor aching feet!
((Yes, the DH drug me to Dicks Sporting Goods!))
And since we all know that fashion stops below the knees when standing on concrete floors to teach all day workshops and give lectures --- my feet will be very colorful in their new black/turquoise/pinkness!
Move on to new hotel to be welcomed by a gorgeous marble floor:
Yes, this is the Quilter’s edition of “Laying Out The Red Carpet!”
A baby one in the elevator!
We had about 150 at the trunk show tonight, and I am looking forward to a couple fun days of classes with these ladies.
The highlight for me? A group of quilters from the Sulphur Springs, Greenville TX area who I used to quilt with “way back when” we moved to Sulphur Springs in 1999. That is where I lived when the millenium was ushered in. What a great group of ladies, and they remembered times we went to retreat together and sewed on sit and sew days and it was a great reunion.
See, not a whole lot interesting to photograph ----but a dear day all in all ---
Oh, here is one funny thing! DH and I were driving down the toll road and all of a sudden we see blue and red flashing lights in the rearview mirror. He got pulled over!
I said – “Are you SPEEDING!??” No ---
The officer asked to see his license and registration and proof of insurance ---Well, this is a rental car. We don’t HAVE proof of insurance on it.
The officer said that he had ran our tags and that the car was uninsured! We laughed, saying that this is a rental and we picked it up at the airport on Saturday ----and we are covered by our own insurance. What a CLOSE CALL. Who would guess that a car rental company would let insurance lapse on rental cars?
It was good for a laugh after, but it was panicky at the time!
Night night! Class time comes early tomorrow!
