Muddy But Nice!

Yesterday ended up being a wonderful day. It rained on Quilting In the Garden though. I called ahead and found they had hung all of the quilts indoors. Hmm, it was going to be a muddy, crowded show but wanted to meet up with some special friends. It was sooo worth it. We had a good time looking at all of the quilts and chatting with Alex. We said goodbye to one our group and headed over to Inbetween Sitches and LUNCH at the Railroad Cafe. This little place has great food and they close at 2, so we just made it. We had to wait about 15 minutes and would you believe they told us we could wait in the quilt shop, they came and got us when our table was ready!! How's that for service! LOL I Love it! Potato pancake and fruit, yummm. Inbetween Stitches was packed, got a chance say hi to Pam and the crew and shop a little. Then we headed out to the Diablo Valley Guild show. What nice surprise that little show was. It's grown since the last one and had some very nice quilts. It was great day and I was worn out!! My purchases were minimal. I'm so proud. I must be preoccupied with pumpkins :-) This is all I bought and no Darlene, not joining you yet! ( oh how I want to!) Also, I've added a flicker album to the left. There are some pics of both shows in the albums.

Aw come on, Mar, you must join me! No, I'm not going to send my poorly completed block - nice try. I'll just have to learn to live with it. LOL

I like that American Jane pattern - very cute!

I'm really glad you had a chance to go. Unfortunately I couldn't go after all. Jason was sick on Friday and by late Saturday I wasn't feeling very well at all.

Thanks so much for putting up the pictures!

Thanks for sharing Mar. I'm assuming that the pumpkin quilt near the end is the same one you're doing? Glad you had such a great day even if the weather didn't co-operate.

Glad you had fun at the show--and isn't RR Cafe the BEST???

Kim said...

Wait! What? You went without ME?! LOL! Actually, I went to the quilt show last year or the year before and had fun. Lucky you! Sounds like you had a great day!

I'm glad the show was better than you expected. The potato pancakes sound yummy too. I love it when we a few of us go to a quilt show, lunch and shop...a great way to spent a day.

I aspire to move back there someday.

What an absolutely awesome day you had, Mar! I have always wanted to attend that quilt show - rain or shine, I'm sure it would be worth going to!
Love the patterns you bought, too!
