Road Trip - Days 3 and 4


I'm back!  Sorry for not posting yesterday.  We had no internet connection in our hotel.  So, I'm back to day with a summary of Days 3 and 4.

After checking out the weather channel in Mitchell on the evening of Day 2, we learned Sioux Falls was expecting a blizzard on Sunday.  So we got up early and high tailed it out of town Saturday morning instead of antiquing with Kim as we had hoped to do.  We obviously scare easily!  From Sioux Falls, we headed South and then East.

By Saturday evening, we had made it into Davenport, Iowa, so we stayed there for the night.  We left Davenport about 8:00 this morning and made it through Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and into Ohio as far as Cleveland today....almost 500 miles.  According to MapQuest, we only have 358 miles to go until we're home!  Yay!!

Besides the great distance we've traveled, I have nothing exciting to report.  We haven't made any fun stops at all, just frequent dog pit stops.  Ruby and Curly are adjusting well to hotel life and would like nothing more than to be set free to run the hallways and cannot understand why we won't let them do that!

Have a great rest of your weekend!

OH, I've forgotten to tell you that my visit to Stitcher's Stash in Fairfax, Virginia has been postponed until February 23rd.  Jackie will be (or already has) sent out an email announcing that, but if you don't receive her emails, I wanted to let you know as well.  The hours I'll be there are still 11:00-3:00.

Thanks!

Kathy, I wish I wouldn't have read your blog today!!!!!!!!!! It just made my heart leap! I live in Davenport, Iowa and am a huge fan of your work and Anne's. I would have loved to met up with you even for 5 minutes. UNREAL that you were here ... oh my! What fun that would have been for me! Tell Anne I so love her charts and designs!!!!

I am glad you are home safe and take care. Keep us informed of what is going on in the design world.
