Road Trip

Today the Wednesday quilters took a road trip instead of quilting.  Several ladies were turning in quilts to be shown in a quilt show. The Country Quilters biannual show, "Harvest of Quilts IX," will be from 10 to 4 on Sat., Sept. 27 and 28th at Pine Bush High School, 118 Route 302 in Pine Bush, NY.  We were at Quilter's Attic.  Notice all those green bags?  We were all trying to help the economy improve! 

We tried to stop at a local restaurant but they had closed for the week for vacation.  Oh well.  On to a chain restaurant and an enjoyable lunch.  

Here are the trippers in front of Quilter's Attic.  I'm the tall one on the end. Hum, didn't realize I'm taller than everyone.    

Our last stop was Jelly Toast Inc./The Fabric Center, 57 Front St. in Port Jervis, NY.  (Sorry couldn't find a web address.)  No pictures because the camera battery had died. And, we helped the economy in Port Jervis also! 


Tomorrow I'll be back to quilting on the piece I showed yesterday.  And, the dog is going to a new vet to make sure all her shots are up to date.  Christy is a 13 and 1/2 year old black and white springer spaniel.  Her days are spent asleep on her cushy bed.  She gets up if we make her go outside which she really doesn't like. (Heck it is cold and dark at 5:30am when she is invited out!) She will be at a new kennel over the weekend as we go to watch our son and sil participate in a triathlon.  She's just too old to go with especially since there are three young dogs going too.  Being new in the area is hard on both humans and animals.   Hopefully she'll realize we'll pick her up Monday.  She also needs to be groomed but how many new things can I spring on her at once? (She looks pretty pitiful here ... maybe it is the angle!)  

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie
