Paducah or Bust – 2017
Greetings from central Illinois. I know I’ve done this before, but I still find it amazing that I can post to my blog on my laptop, from a truck cruising down the highway at 70 mph, while using my cellphone as a “hotspot” internet connection! What a fantastic world we live in!
Once again I’m on my way to Quilt Week in Paducah, Kentucky. It’s my favorite part of Spring. This year my travel partner, Wendy, had the wonderful opportunity to fly to Ireland with her husband and visit their daughter Tori, who is studying in Dublin. I’m so glad for them, but I know I’ll miss having her along. The good news is I found two friends who were thrilled to come along this year. Laura and Eileen have never been to Quilt Week, so I can’t wait to show them around.
This is just my part of the stuff I’ll “need” in Paducah. Once again we’ll turn the kitchen into a studio and do some stitching when we feel the urge.
We’ve decided to split the trip in half this year. By only driving halfway we didn’t have to miss church today 🙂 . We’ll spend tonight in Champaign, IL, so we can visit the Amish shops in the Arthur area tomorrow, since they are closed on Sunday. We’ll check into the B&B tomorrow afternoon and the fun will begin.
Quilt Week in Paducah – here we come!
