Because I taught so many classes, I didn’t have a lot of time to shop. Spent a fair amount of money at the SewBatik booth. Bought a few of cones of thread from Superior Threads. (And truly, by a couple, I mean a very few: 3, I think? Plus So Fine thread cards…so I can place a bigger order here shortly once I figure out what I really need color-wise…)
Some rulers from Off the Edge Quilting Supplies — their acrylic rulers are hot pink. Very snazzy looking. They have some interesting shapes, and I’m looking forward to doing some experimenting. I’m not typically a ruler girl, but sitting and watching the demos, got some wheels turning…
And that was pretty much it. Everything else I spent my money on was food related. Oh, and Boston Red Sox hats for the 3 boys.
I had a really nice time with a bunch of different people. The best part about the show is getting spend time with people you only know from online. I think it deepens the bonds. At least, I know it does for me, I guess I can’t speak for anyone else.
I tried to visit the quilts as much as I could. There was some really beautiful work. As I’ve mentioned, I did not take my camera. I believe that pictures of the winners will be posted on the MQX website sometime in the next week or so. Their pictures will be much nicer than anything I could have taken….
I’ve spent the morning chained to my desk trying to do some paperwork and find that I’m needing to take a break to stretch…get some lunch…maybe take a nap….
