Not far from the truth

The other day I joked about the upcoming event at Sweet Home Quilt and wondered if there would be a line. I arrived at Sweet Home a few minutes before nine last night and the porch was FULL of laughing women waiting for the doors to open. I heard that they began assembling an hour earlier! What fun...middle aged women that have their priorites straight! I think the ladies inside were slightly fearful of being trampled when they opened the doors.
As usual, I was bad! Gretchen, Cindi, Sarah and others had piles of purchases as well. I bought a backing for the Civil War Scrappy quilt and I found another jelly roll that I had to have. I loved it so much that I bought the layer cake as well. This morning I will check out the book to see which one I want to do next! But first I need to begin to prepare the fabric I have for quilt camp.....Come on Sept 18th! It probably wouldn't hurt if I did a little cleaning too!

the only sad part of last evening was that Becky was unable to come. But Becky I know you were there in spirit with the rest of us!

Karin - I so HATE that I didn't even get to speak to you last night! It was such a zoo, and so many people I only caught glimpses of from across the rooms! But it was tremendous fun and I hope all of you who came enjoyed it, too. Expecting more crowds today as we finish up the 3rd Anniversary

Last night was so much fun! My "Bad Melisa" bag was stuffed! Can't wait to see what you do with the layer cake and jelly roll. Happy sewing and hugs to Bailey!

Ok. What layer cake and jelly roll line did you purchase? I'm living through your purchases. Thanks so much for calling to offer to take me to Bad Melisa's sale! I was indeed there in spirit! Once, the new hip is doing it's job, let's make a "run" to Sweet Home.
