I think Jane and I set a record. Road to California in three hours! We were both pooped. Nothing new and exciting. There were some pretty quilts hanging, but a lot - and I mean a lot of them had all those crystal beadings, etc. They were beautiful, but nothing I would ever want to make. There were a number of Civil War quilts, more traditional patterns, and those were the ones I found the most interesting. The web site doesn't have the winners up yet. www.road2ca.com
Yes, I bought a couple of kits. One is from Primitive Gatherings, and is The Triangle Quilt. I must be nuts - but that thing was so beautiful. They are 1" HSTs.
The other kits are still in the car. They were from Stars & Scraps, and are small quilts. Shouldn't ding my stash report too badly! :)
Thank you all for your input on decision-making. This involved a move, and as of one hour ago, the decision was made not to do that. So all that worrying was for naught, but at least I worked through things in my own feeble mind. I did decide, though, that this year I'm getting control of my life. I seem to have been reacting the last couple of years instead of being proactive. Some of this was out of my control. I'm going to be 60 years old this year, so I must start doing what's in my best interest, especially with my time.
I'm going to take a nap just as soon as I finish off this bowl of ice cream. Didn't sleep a wink last night, and now I'm going to play catch-up. Oh, and the ice cream is just because!
ADDITIONAL NOTE: Jane and I just talked, and something occurred to both of us. We didn't see any jelly rolls, charm packs or layer cakes in the booths. Granted, we might have missed them, but usually the booths are full of those kind of things. Hmmmm........
