While I was in Ohio, my friend who is not a quilter took me to the quilt shop in Waynesville, the Fabric Shack.  It was great.  2 buildings of fabric. After a little retail therapy, we had lunch at a small family restaurant.  It was yummy.  It is a town that I would like to return to to walk around and visit the shops.   The owner said they get a deluge of visitors on the weekends for the antique shops, etc. so many of the businesses are closed on Monday.  Of course, we were there on a Monday.  

We didn't end up going to see Bob's brother.  He was moving and things were very chaotic.  Unfortunately that meant we didn't go towards Judy's direction and Bob decided he was driving straight up I-75.  We missed a stop at Judy's.  I was really looking forward to that.disappointed_relieved  Maybe next road trip.  That means I missed the Door Mouse also.  Judy, thanks for recommending the Fabric Shack. 

We have made it safely to Michigan.  We have driven over 2500 miles so far.  We had a free afternoon today so Bob did take me to 2 quilt shops.relaxed

DGD, Carley is 13 today.  We are sorry to be missing her birthday but have Face-timed her.  Time passes so fast.

So glad your there with no events. What a good day even if it was Monday. And a good sport of Bob to go to other quilt stores  

Right now I’m tackling my quilt room!  I’ve been in here since 9:00am. I have more piles I swear.

I did get up my cute little shelf with a quilt hanger under it. On to the board that will hold all of my rulers and scissors. I measured 4 times, marked it and did the right side,  on to the left side, Yep the one stud in this room — (and I don’t mean a hunk a muffin). Another hole and another sad face. 

I’m not giving up either,  I’m starting to rhyme though, kind of like a Texan  I said “well HAIL now I gotta find another skinnier NAIL”

i’ve not completely lost it, but I do feel I’m on the yellow brick road to it!  lol

have a great rest of your trip
