That's where Cathy and I went today, and wow was it small. We'd been through everything by 10am, and we got there at 9am. We had arranged to meet Mary-Kay and her friend for lunch, thank goodness we ran into them and decided to eat early. Not at 10am though, lol...Cathy and I were on our second go-round when we ran into them.
Mary-Kay's friend [how embarrassing, I've lost her name already] - Mary-Kay, and me. Grey bangs shining like a beacon.
We chatted with this lovely lady while we waited for the show to open.
She's the founder of The Sewing Machine Project, they collect and distribute sewing machines to women around the world. They've donated 750 to just New Orleans. AMAZING story - check her out, and if you have a sewing machine collecting dust, consider donating! She also had some gorgeous messenger-style bags made out of sails, and decorated by artists, and the sale helps them raise funds. Sewing machines are expensive to ship! You can check those out too, here at Sea Hope Partners.
All I bought were my usual leather dot thimbles, I was almost out. I get some every year. Cathy did a little better. *G* Afterward, we stopped at Joann Fabrics, and I got all the floss I'll need for the stitch-along at Homespun that I'm doing with Wendy. And when I got home, I got the first block traced! I'll fuse the interfacing to the back tomorrow, then start stitching the first block, yay!
I hope you're having a great weekend too!
