This travelogue is jumping around a bit...which gives you a taste of how my brain works. Or doesn't, as the case may be.
I have to start with a pic that actually has Pam in it. Sadly, there aren't too many of those. She was the one wielding the camera most of the time. Or dashing off to photograph her many peeps in their booths. And yes, with amazing regularity ladies came up to her with the following question: "Are you PamKittyMorning?!" And she didn't always have her tote bag with her, either. It's a wonder I saw her at all.
So after getting the booth set up, we took off. To find food. Then food with parking. At that time, the only solution was the Macaroni Grill. I know, why eat at a place that's everywhere when you should be sampling the local specialties...hey, we tried. Couldn't FIND anything else. And our pasta was really good. Next we wanted to go to Piper's--the super famous quilt shop. Well, we figured we'd ask our waiter. So just how DOES one get to a street called "South 1100 East" (my guess would be by travelling north)...anyway, our waiter responds with the following: "Which South is that?"
OK, we're doomed.
Not so! As you may recall, "Pam" is "Map" spelled backwards so she managed to get us there just fine! And it was well worth the trip. Darling shop with wonderful fabrics and it just so happened they had a cool sample I had to photograph.
The quilt really isn't sideways--and I actually DID flip it correctly, but Blogger has decided it likes it this way the best. And who am I to argue with Blogger.
Anyway, so back to the convention center we go. To sneak into Sample Spree. Yes. That's another one of the wonders that is Pam. I am a total rule follower. Sneaking in is WRONG. But Pam makes it seem so easy. And so RIGHT. And it was the right thing to do, otherwise I would not have been able to see with my own eyes ladies running full speed to the Moda area. Like a stampede. Those quilt shop ladies are crazy, I tell you!
I'm pleased to report that I got the bundle I desperately needed (Allspice Tapestry is gorgeous!) and I scored that super cool Utah totebag. So all was good!
