Louisville, Kentucky - Day 2 and Day 3

These days would have been Wednesday and Thursday . . .

and I took no pictures :) However, there are websites, don't you know?

I spent Wednesday with a really good, relatively new friend, Susan, who generously came to Louisville to spend the day with me. We spent the morning visiting two quilt shops that were absolutely lovely. The first, Among Friends and the second, The Cozy Quilter. Both were great shopping experiences and I will have no problem shopping them over the net to meet some of my needs and especially wants :)

I made a list before I left home and managed to stay within my budget - but it wasn't easy.

I did take pictures when I got home.

 

A few things are missing:  a fat quarter and brown micron pen that I shared with BF. She was already planning what to do with the fat quarter while we met over breakfast. And a couple of fat quarters to go into my Shoebox Swap for the end of the year. The colors would give away who they are for and then the surprise would be spoiled and we don't want to do that.

A few of my purchases have definite plans and the rest is just because I liked them and will come up with a project down the road.

We returned to my hotel after sharing lunch and spent the afternoon as friends do best . . . stitching and chatting. The day ended much too quickly and I can't wait for an excuse to get together again. 

Thursday, I spent the majority of my day in the hotel room - by choice - catching up on emails, trying to write my blog and stitching. I worked on a project for the ShoeBox exchange at the end of the year and then on Wendy's BOF. I am seriously behind. I'll have photos next week of those. I took several other projects, but fortunately, I was busy doing other things that I really didn't get much done. That was okay, but I have to have a back-up plan, just in case :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity.

We DID have a great time together! Seeing all your purchases laid out like that brings back each store. I was looking all over for your nines today, and I know I have them, but I can't find them. I'm going to look in the trunk to see if I missed them, but I was sure I brought them upstairs!
