    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Wow, you were a busy lady! Thanks for the pictures. Doubt I'll ever get to that part of the country.

    I've done road trips and shop hops but never have I gone 400 miles in one day. Shopping with you must be fun!

    wow--that was a lot of driving! Hamilton is just amazing, isn't it! Missouri Star basically owns most of the town and such fun--especially when weather a little nicer and you can walk from shop to shop.

    I got to go to MSQC last year and loved all the shops and meeting Jenny! I think she bought up almost all the old shops.

    It was a lot of driving, indeed. but I was travelling from my DGKs to my brother and Dad, so was motivated by that. And I used to live near Quilt cove, so showed up at opening mostly for the nostalgia... and I got this souvenir

    Wow, that was a crazy lot to pack into one day. You must be one efficient shopper and speed demon! I think Hamilton itself took up 1/2 a day when I went with my dad.

    Can you see my green eyes of envy? Sounds like a fun trip to visit family and see quilt shops. Thank you for sharing your fun.

    I was hoping to get there earlier. John Kubiniec was teaching a class there that day and I wanted to see that the students did. John is a friend of mine from around home.

    Missouri Star in person! I would have to bring lots of $$ there.

    Good for you to do so many nice things on your trip. Love the replica of a license plate.

    My spouse laughs how I must hit every quilt shop when we vacation. Can't wait for our Australia and New Zealand cruise!
