This is the "loot" of our first day at Paducah! I took a great picture of us "before" and then "after", but on the wrong camera :c(! I can't find the cord to download, so from now on I will take pics with my "good" camera.
To recap the day! I spent my entire weeks allowance on the first day. The truth is I went over by $18. I got so upset (silently) that I had a nose bleed :c(! Well---after sleeping on it, I am no longer upset, I will take my blood pressure meds and I will continue to have fun!!!!!!
We did have fun yesterday! All we did was shop (clearly) but we are returning on Saturday to look at all the quilts. We had a great lunch with a quilter from MS who got TWO---count them---TWO quilts in the show. AND---drum roll here-----they do NOT have crystals and in fact are really quilts that represent the kinds I make! REAL quilts. She gave Diane and I hope since sometimes when you go to these shows, although the quilts are absolutely beautiful and you see why they are winners, at the same time, I am a little discouraged since I KNOW I could never make quilts like that. I am going to try to enter one next year---I am! I know I don't have a chance of a "snowball in a 400 degree oven" of winning, but I would love to get the comments from judges. In the program, there were lots of "first time" entrants and the quilts were beautiful. As I said, we will really look at them all on Saturday!
Today, we are going to make the rounds locally and then tomorrow I think we will go to Whittles. I am just looking although I am thinking of going to the pawn shop and pawning my wedding ring for some extra cash (just joking)----but I wonder how much I could get?????
xoxo---have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
