On The Road Again!

Today, Marion, Joannie, Sue and I are headed up to Freeport, Maine to spend the weekend at Quiltport USA. We made our first trip up last year and somehow, our adventures never made it into the blog. Here's a quick recap from last year.

We sewed, we shopped, we ate, and then we sewed and shopped some more!
In addition to a spacious sewing room, we had our own private vendor mall!
We got to hang out with Nancy Q. and Ginny.

We had dinner with Elvis at Bob's Clam Shack!

I got a massage and we soaked away our quilting aches and pains in the hot tub.
We bought some fabric.
In fact, we shopped our way up to Quiltport, at Quiltport and on our way home from Quiltport.
At the end of the weekend, we had to fit all of this in Joannie's car.
Yes, we filled three luggage carts! A little bit more than we had started with.
This is the wheel well of the passenger seat in the front. Not too much room for my feet!
We filled up the back seat until you could only see Sue and Marion's heads.
I think that we were the inspiration for this Mrs. Bobbin cartoon!
Luckily Joannie has a new car this year, complete with a big cargo holder on top! Lots of room for new fabric. Also, Marion has to leave early, so we can fill up her seat too!

We'll be back on Sunday. Stay tuned for my report on Quiltport USA 2014!

Pugs and kisses,
