Packin' Up, Headin' Out! Why I'm Headin' South

 It's that time of year again! The great migration to the AQS Show in Paducah, KY  takes place next week. That's why Frieda and I are packing our wares for the great journey South. Alas, it takes me days of struggle to get things organized and into boxes for transport in our trusty van.
The boxes store books, and patterns, and fabrics, and threads, and quilts, and a container of snacks to keep Frieda from longing for her dog, George.
George in a rare pensive moment.
Someday I'm going to get a dog so I have an excuse for eating all those snacks.
Come see us in booth # 1905!

That will be a great show to be at, hope you will get lots of photos for those of us, who can't attend. Love the puppy, I need to do some like that with my pets.

Hi Laura, I'll try and find you through the crowds! I'm heading north to Paducah Tuesday...first I need to pack some really comfortable shoes!

And I for one, will live vicariously through the both of you as you eat and plot and plan your way to Paducah! (even though I have a dog - I'll eat anyway!) HAVE A GREAT TIME!

You will have to check out my quilt...It is part of the Alliance for American Quilts Contest and titled Sunflowers on the Plains and it is fused along with some hand stitching.

Safe travels to you, and have a wonderful time! (how can you not??) I'll be cosmicly sending people your way while lounging on the beach :o)
