Lead Me Not Into TEMPTATION . . . Except Quilt Shops (and Quilt Shows)

I think the T-Shirt says it all. I was a baaad girl. But I look at it this way -- I did help stimulate the declining economy, right? Yeah, that's it!

Besides spending entirely too much, we had a blast. Even my grandson, Anthony, had fun looking at all the beautiful quilts and fondling the fabric. I think I have a future quilter on my hands. :o) At each booth he said, "Can I touch this fabric, Nana?" because he knew he couldn't touch the quilts. LOL! He's such a cutie!

We had a false start after getting lost -- for some reason I thought the show was in Edison, but while it is sort of, they consider it Somerset. Whatever...we found it after I called my brother-in-law and had him Google it and give us the directions. We have a GPS, but of course it's useless unless you input the correct destination. :o/ Now mind you, I printed out the directions before we left...but they, too, are useless unless you actually remember to bring them! Oy!

I've uploaded all the quilts that caught my eye (a lot, of course) for you to enjoy here. They were all so beautiful and amazing, and the workmanship was to die for. I was also surprised to run into Mark Lipinski of Quilter's Home Magazine at the very last booth we visited before we left. Let me tell you -- he is a hoot! I had him autograph his latest issue and Anthony and I had our pic taken with him. He's a great guy and he and Anthony got along famously. He really likes kids and was great with him. If you haven't read his magazine, you're really missing out.

Well, I promised to show you my ill-gotten gains, so here they are. All those bags! I'm glad I remembered to bring my tote cart...although if I had forgotten it like I had forgotten the directions, I wouldn't have purchased so much. LOL! But then again, the economy would have suffered....right? Right. :o)

Happy Quilting!

Looks like you did well helping out the economy...but not TOO bad. Don't you love little bundles of fabric with bows? Put a bow around something and I'll probably buy it.

Glad you all had a great time!

Hi Suzi, I wanted to pop over and thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment...but no! I don't want to cut your scraps once mine are done...if they EVER are!
What a fun blog you have and a wonderful attitude. I look forward to reading more. Great job on the purchases! Hugs, Finn
