Today was a lovely, lovely day. My friend Cathy and I hit the road to take my machine to the dr. and see what trouble we could get into. Due to all the construction on the highways, it took us twice as long to get to Port Huron as it should've...but that's ok. We took the scenic route.
Port Huron is home to Mary Maxim - a wonderful catalog store full of crafty goodness.
They have a nice clearance section. I'll show you another time what Cathy got me. After we dropped off my machine, we stopped in there and then went to the quilt shop.
I found some darling fabric, half off - I'll show you that another time as well.
After that, we went to the mall, and had lunch from the Japoni Grill - love love love the bourbon chicken and rice! Then, since I can't leave Port Huron without visiting the beach, that's where we headed. Boy was it crowded!
Tons of boats anchored just offshore so folks could swim. You see the boats out there? That's like waist deep water. It was nice and warm today, we didn't need our winter coats like last time.
And then I took Cathy on a drive around town. She's never been there. And she spotted the darlingest little diner that I had never noticed!
Look at the ceiling and all the Lucy stuff! I LOVE Lucy! And I seriously wanted to pack up this diner, put it in my purse and take it home.
This is what I had.
And look at this floor - is this not a quilt in the making?
I'll have to try and do some math to make one just like it!
All in all, it was a great day spent with my best friend. Thanks Cathy - anytime you're up for a road trip, let me know!
