Roving Quilt Correspondents -- In Paducah!


We've got 4 ladies from the shop up in Paducah taking in all the quilts, vendors, and classes. They sure are having fun...I think Gina and I will let them work next time and we'll go to the show! Here's the latest update from them...and all of their funny pictures!

Thursday--

We have survived our first day at the quilt show and our dogs are barking! Going through the show with all the quilting ladies is a hazardous experience. Everyone has a different sized homemade bag filled with all their goodies. One lady swung around and I almost ended up losing a boob. Linda also almost beheaded a woman with a bolt of fabric at Hancock's. Even though Barb only goes 1/2 a mile an hour we lost her in the crowd. So far Ada has behaved, but there is always tomorrow!
Coming attractions:surprise pictures with the quilting cow?????
We are back at our hotel looking over all our goodies and preparing for Ada's foot treatments????
Talk to you tomorrow.

Friday--
We have just arrived back at our hotel after a full day of quilt mania in Paducah. Our feet don't hurt as much today as yesterday.No foot massages tonight. I had pictures of Linda giving Ada a foot massage and vis-a-versa but did't sent it because they were afraid it would end up on facebook. We maybe can bribe them with the photo at a later date!
We found this great quilt shop called Backyard Fabric and it was literally in the woman's backyard. It was a very peaceful spot with ducks swimming in the pond out front. It was a working farm so you could hear the cows off in the distance. Then it was off to Eleanor Burn's show and it seemed we had not left the farm,because her new book is about barns. As always , her show was a hoot and she is still stripping for a living!!!
Not many funny stories from today except for Barb trying to milk a 10 foot cow with a quilt on its back.They are expecting stormy weather here tomorrow so we are going to stay indoors. Barb can use her cane to "part" the crowds.
