My plan went out the window yesterday, but I had fun. I started out for the Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop two hours later than I'd wanted to, so I had time to appreciate the green March has to offer. These are pictures taken outside my front door: A star my Dad made-
I was planning to make the bowling ball a beautiful yard ornament like this one: Beautiful Bowling Ball. So you see how far I got with that.
I made it to 6 of the 11 shops yesterday. I got lost twice in the northwestern Atlanta provinces. I am really scared about finding Little Quilts again when I take a workshop there next week. I saw samples from two other classes I MUST take, so I need to get a Garmon GPS. Hey, hubby's 60th birthday is next week. Do you think he'll pick up on the fact that I am gifting him something I need?
There was drama yesterday at Red Hen Fabrics involving police, fire and ambulance. A police officer told me (when I was getting directions from him as to which way to turn exiting the parking lot) that there had been a couple of car accidents on the corner by the shop. BE CAREFUL LADIES! Thank goodness, no one was hurt seriously.
One other interesting thing from yesterday. I saw a bundle of wet fabric in the dirt on the dumpster side of the building at Red Hen. It was this quilt. I am happy to report it was not a throw away, but a youngster's picnic blanket that had been forgotten.(You know how those little folks can be.) It has now been returned to it's rightful owner. I hope she washes it in really hot water. There were a good number of crawly things on it.
