Like Nora Ephron said in her book, "I feel bad about my neck", I feel bad about my allergy face here, but that's the way it was yesterday. My neighbors unknowingly but frequently, torment me with allergens. The latest assault came when they took down an enormous oak and the cut remains are all over our connecting back yards, putting out oak odors that leave me with headaches. Wish the tree people had taken it away...
Those of you with sensitivities to chemicals will get it... I need a rolling hamster ball to live in, rolling safely around til I land in a safe environment.
I did visit the vendors, just to be supportive you know, and managed to find a few items to purchase. One of the most exciting was a thread holder that is heavier than the flimsy
I teach a bratty threads class CLICK HERE comparing thread types, needles to use, settings and adjustments needed and more, and still wanted to have a thread-bonfire that day. Hopefully this holder will work and not fall over. There are other mylar threads that I love by the way, Madeira, Yli and Superior all make a glittering asst of the flat reflective wonders, I was just trying to use up some "Trouble-On-A-Spool"
Last stop was a good party at Steve's (http://www.stevessewandvac.com/)
My MIL teaches there, and I used to teach there. It is a fabulous store worth a visit especially after the show as they have sales, demos and dinner for visitors. Of course I left with some of their fabric. I wanted to leave with the Janome hello kitty. So cute.
All in all a fun day spent with quilters and planning the next quilt.
