You can't go to a quilt show with vendors and not buy at least SOME stuff. I am no exception.
3 Show pins (one for me, one for Julie, one for Chris)
1 2017 Engagement calendar
1 AQS Quilt Week 2016 T-shirt
10 rotary cutter blades
3 1 yard cuts of fabric - can you see the red and white? Yup, those are for the new quilt, which I hope to start this weekend.
1 book, and wouldn't you know, it's a book I already have. Sigh.
1 MOK mug (see yesterday's post)
1 MOK sticker (already on the car)
2 jars of New York produced pickled relish & wax beans with garlic
a tank and a half of gas,
1 night in a hotel
2 dinners out at good restaurants (1060 in Syracuse and MOK in Hoosick NY)
11 hours of driving
I'm not usually a T-shirt kind of gal, but it was what was printed on the BACK that made me buy it:
AQS will NOT be in Syracuse next year, which is kind of a bummer. It was the closest one I could get to without flying, and that means I may not get to another for a long time. The folks in Syracuse are a bit disappointed. According to one local, the AQS show brought over a million dollars into Syracuse. That's not chump change, but the vendors said they didn't do the usual business in Syracuse that they did in other AQS locations.
I had a grand time visiting and met a lot of good people. More on that (and a pink barn spotted on the drive to Syracuse) later, because I'm still really tired.
