First to blog about our day, that is. We went to the American Sewing Expo today. I got to meet a couple of fellow bloggers and they are awesome. Pam from Mama Spark's World, and Mary-Kay from Quilting Junkie.
This is Pam on the left, me in the middle, and Mary-Kay on the right. I wish you could meet these gals in person, they're a lot of fun! I told my hubby I was going to meet them, and he thinks we're all stalkers. *snort* Men.
I went with my friend Cathy [an annual event!] and my other friend Kathy came too. No pics, no blogs....I'll have to work on them.
Aside from meeting some exceptional bloggers, the show was a disappointment. Our favorite vendor wasn't there. The show was smaller. Way too much empty space. Cathy and I decided next year, we'll skip it, and try to get to Houston instead.
I did find some treasures. This vendor had .99 fat quarters, and yards were [I think] $3.
I couldn't resist this book, it was on sale for $3? $4? It's lovely.
On the back:
I love all things nautical.
The deal of the day was this.
36 skeins of variegated DMC floss for $10! And my favorite thimbles to use for hand sewing, which is the main reason I go to this show - it's the only place I can find them.
My favorite fabric purchases were these [sorry for the bad pic]:
Now I'm exhausted and I'm going to go rest!
