We arrived home at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. The hedge in front of my bed room has bloomed. There was a HUGE bee collecting the stuff bees like when I went out to take this picture before the storm hit. Since I am allergic to bees it was not a real smart idea but the sun was shinning for the first time since we arrived home and I wanted a picture.

I did not go into work on Monday........jet lag (can you have jet lag if you drive?). We had a wonderful time see country we had not seen before and meeting all sorts of nice individuals from different parts of our country and from afar. The gentleman from Brazil was very interesting to converse with as was the tree trimmers and linemen in the area to correct the damage the ice storm caused the area back in February. Funny that the men were more open to talk then the ladies were. I did have an interesting conversation with a lady from Toronto while at the quilt show.

Paducah is a HUGE town. People kept saying is was a nice "little" town so I was completely caught off guard when we arrived. The first place I saw of interest was Hancock's of Paducah. We (I) had a blast looking thru that place before we left town. Of course I had to take a small part of the offered products home with me.

Eleanor Burns had the fabric in her store on sale for $4.00 per yard. I picked up nine yards of a beautiful fabric for the backing of my quilt (that I have not started yet). My daughter finally picked the pattern she wants her quilt to be and she purchased the fabric for me to start on it.

I am home from work today with a head ache. I think I will work on my studio so I can start on the quilts. I am just going to cut out some of the parts as I am going to do the quilt along with about 300 hundred other people following "crazy mom quilts" blog.

Off to get some laundry done.

Welcome back! I didn't know Elenor Burns had a store in Paducah. I would love to visit there and go to Hancocks. I have that on my to-do list.
We are having weather here too in Central OK.
Glad to hear you had a good time.
Is the Quilt Sampler in Tulsa?
