    Well I am back from Florida, just in time for a winter storm. It was a blast ! I got to meet sewnsewer2 and Bearisgray ! We had so much fun :shock: And my Debit card is still cooling off :roll: Maybe I should stick it in the snow :wink: I meet up with sewnsewer2 on Monday , started with lunch then went to her LQS. They have tons of fabric and everyone was so nice . then we went to Hancocks where I got fabric for son #2 who is getting married in May. He loved the university of Tennessee. I think the fabric blinded sewnsewer2 8-) On Tuesday I meet up with Bearisgray at her LQS and did a little shopping, then we went back to her place for lunch and she showed me a beautiful quilt she was working on and she gave me some helpful tips on sewing. Wish I had taken a notebook to write down notes :oops: On my last day I went to another quilt store in Dunedin that soneone on the board suggested I go to ( 18,000 bolts of fabric ) Rainbow Quilts I think it was . I ended up stopping by 5 shops in various parts of Florida.

    Looks like you had a great time and you did good on the shopping, that fabric with the purple and blue flowers is breath-taking

    The Dunedin quilt shop, Rainbow's End Quilt Shoppe is my favorite. I don't live very far from it and can't resist going every time I'm in town. Glad you enjoyed your trip. I'm originally from IN., Marion.

    I have to say.. they had a VERY nice helpful young man working there and I was surprised as I have never seen that before. And you could tell he loved being there
    :lol: Aroud here it is all women that work in the shops. I wish I had , had time to talk to someone there about him, he was wonderful :thumbup: And such a nice change from most of the kids I see elsewhere :wink:

    well, I finally made it here to your thread. So wish I could have met with you guys, but...stuff and stuff.
    I see the mickster did follow you everywhere! oh my, a stalking mouse? like Pepe' Le Pew...he's twitterpated with you :wink:
    You got lots of great fabrics!
    So good to meet members huh? :thumbup:
    Did you all get worn out with all that walking and the lines at D world?
    I'd love to take grandbabies some day, but afraid me and DH just couldn't financially or physically make it. pooh!
    If I had the money, maybe i would send my kids with the grands with the understanding that pictures are payback:XD:
    Seems like you had a great time and that's what vacations are all about, right? And you needed one :wink:
