Road Trip

I forget when you get outside of the metro Atlanta area, you are in the country. I decided that I would go check out the quilt show in Watkinsville today. I left here (after the laundry was done) and headed out Ga316 toward Athens. The venue was on Hog Mt Rd and when I saw that, I detoured from the directions and headed that way. There is not much on Hog Mt Rd. It is a good thing that I had a full tank of gas! I could have bought a cow today. I saw a sign "cattle for sale" but decided that the back yard just is not big enough for a cow! I enjoyed looking at the quilts that were displayed. Visited with Melisa and left some money there. Also visited with Sarah of Thimbles/yoyo fame. Headed over to the quilt shop Dragonfly's and ran into Sarah again! I bought a book and a couple of fat quarters and then headed home. Thought about detouring down to Sweet Home but my hands were really hurting, so I just came home.

I had an email from my fat quarter swap partner. The package arrived in Australia. What fun to hear from someone on the other side of the world.

I am thinking about foraging in the sewing room and piecing a back for Double Delight
