Start Your Engines…

The Road to California Quilt Show starts today!  Ohhhh the lucky Quilters who get to go TODAY!  Just look at what is waiting for YOU!

I borrowed this picture from the Road to California’s web page!  I’m sure they won’t mind…I am after all doing a little Free Advertising for them…  So just look at this room…incredible isn’t it!  BUT wait this isn’t all of it…there is another room just like this one plus there are vendors in every hall and entrance way!  Quilts hanging EVERYWHERE!

Tomorrow is my Christmas Morning!!  Our van load of quilters will be pulling out the Resort Gates at 8:15am and chugging down the old freeway towards Ontario, California!

Anticipation…SEW exciting!!!  Like the first day of school…only better…WAY BETTER!! ha ha  I need to remember to wear good shoes, take water and two..maybe three… good sturdy shopping bags…ya just never know what deals your are going to find!

Vendors?  There’s a million of them…well Ok… maybe not a million but there’s a lot!  Check it out HERE -  at the top of the page click on VENDORS to see the list.

I will be dreaming about Road (sigh) as I do the laundry today….ahhhh…such sweet thoughts!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

  13. Lucky, lucky you!!! Have lots of fun!!
    Probably best to get the laundry done first as you may not have time for such mundane activities afterwards when you are all fired up with inspiration!!
