oh my aching feet

Yesterday, I spent the day  (up at 4 a.m. and home at 9 p.m.) taking a bus trip to a quilt show near Philadelphia, PA. It was a great day with some great gals, but I am really tired today!  I'm showing a picture of my finds there. Unfortunately, I cut off the title of the children's book, The Quilt Story, which Pokey recommended in one of her comments on my blog. She said she loves to read it to the children in her classroom.  I also found some lovely fabric and the YLI silk thread I like to use for applique....picked up a pattern and some needles too.
If I haven't been commenting much on other blogs this week, the quilt show was one reason...another was that I was scrambling to meet some deadlines and just didn't take time to comment although I tried to read some blogs.... I will try to catch up over the weekend...Grandson is coming for the weekend but I should have some "me" time...Enjoy your weekend.

Looks like you made some great purchases. The colours of your silk threads are lovely.

I stumbled across The Quilt Story by accident ages ago, and I love it! I've always wanted to make a quilt like the one in the book... :)
