I'm baaaaaack. It was three long days of quilt expo. I loved every minute. Not only did I get to see some truly awesome quilts, spend money and make new acquaintances, I got to learn some new stuff. I'll go back again next year both for the sewing expo and the quilting expo. Granted I don't get paid in money. I get paid in having fun while working. I probably spent more than I should have but I did get some scrumptious fabric. I did notice that attendance was down. Unfortunately some of the classes had to be cancelled due to lack of participants. Yeah, yeah, I know, it's due to the economy. A number of volunteers cancelled, too, which put a burden on the rest of us. Chickens. It was a little nippy yesterday morning but it sure did warm up nicely. So why did people cancel?
Because I live a distance away from the convention center I stayed at a hotel nearby. That way I didn't have to get up at o'dark-thirty to get there on time. I'll do the same next year. Might stay at a different place, though. The hotel I stayed at was just a bit noisy, being as my room faced the highway. And the walls were just a bit thin. I really don't enjoy listening to a man doing his business (which happened only once, but that was enough). There's another hotel beside/behind this one which I will probably try next time.
There's probably a lot I should be doing today but I'm going to work on a quilting project for the exhibition our guild will be having at the botanical gardens in Athens, GA.
Y'all have a quiet day and......
