Paducah day 1

We are here!

 My accommodations are wonderful!  We are staying in a camp condo.....more like a palace.  It is absolutely awesome.

Yesterday we walked the downtown and poke into a few shop (note all quilt related)  I did get to stop in and say hi to Jamie Wallen, Mindy and Dusty.  We had lunch on the river at by the flood walls.  And last by not least we visited Hancock's of Paducah.  I was just a tad overwhelmed, and did drop a few dollars there.  The rest of the crew (Rita and Linda) joined us last night at dinner time. 

Today is another adventure, and away we go :)

design wall

Not alot happening on the design wall, but I do have progress.  I can not show you what is on my qulting machine or what other items I have been piecing.  The piecing project is a pattern  have been testing. Once it is released I will share it with you.  On my quiltng machine is a customer quilt which is to be entered into a show and I do not have the right to show this until they do.  So once again I will wait. 

So with out further ado.  Design Wall

MQX is happening this weekend but I am not attending this year.  I have gone for 6 years and it is time for a break.  Instead of MQX this year I am heading to Paducah ! I have never been and this show is a bi one. 

Keep stitching
