Happy May to everyone! It's one of my favorite months of the year.
Back to the Paducah trip - Day One... Connie and I arrived in Paducah on Monday afternoon just after lunch time. Since it was too early to check in, we headed over to Hancock's. For not needing anything, we both filled our bags pretty full. FYI, Hancock's didn't sponsor the Best of Show this year. In fact, they didn't sponsor anything. We learned this after our shopping trip.
We also checked out Hobby Lobby and found hardly any fabric or books! They used to have loads of bolts and books on sale. Another one to cross off of our list in the future.
For dinner, we drove to Grand Rivers to eat at Patti's 1880 Settlement. This was our first time there even though we've been to Paducah seventeen times. The grounds were in bloom and the food was delicious! There were several gift shops around the restaurant. One of them had chicken chairs on the porch. The water wheel and flowers brought my camera out.
I haven't even unzipped my bag with the new fabric yet. It is full of mostly all Jo Morton fabrics. Connie and I had fun hunting the booths for them.
Last night I started cutting the strips for the Orange Crush Mystery Quilt - Step Two. Do you think I can find my Easy Angle ruler? Of course not, so the strips remain strips.
