I can never arrange my pics the way I want, so hopefully you don't get to discouraged trying to look at them, cause I do try. I need some lessons..
Anyway......I did so enjoy visiting PP&Q....a very nice store. So neatly arranged, and lots of fabrics or anything you were looking for,they do have a web site, it's www.ppquilts.com check them out, I know you will enjoy seeing their store. The store is located in Historic Downtown Summerville, SC. Their business cards says they are one of the top ten in the USA... I'm sure it is. The quilt with their name on it is really cute and I was impressed with the steps, what a unique way to let their customers know how much they are appreciated. I just enjoyed the entire store, so much so, I purchased the box of fat quarters, they were so pretty....now I must find a neat pattern so that I can use them.

The weather has been beautiful for a couple days now. The tree is in the parking lot in front of the motel where we are staying. The picture was taken Thursday morning, today ( Saturday) the flowers are all but gone and the tree is all green. But it sure was pretty for a few days. Everywhere we have been, the flowering trees have been in abundance and the azaleas are awesome.
We had such a great day yesterday, went to 2 quilt stores and saw the beach and the town of Charleston, such a nice treat and the town did not dissapoint me, all I have ever heard is right, it was lovely. I want to come back sometime and spend a day or two just exploring the city. I will share pics of the quilt stores, but today I want to post our schedule for next week, as I know I have family and friends that are planning to visit us in Charlotte, NC next week:
We are looking forward to going to Charlotte,being able to see family and friends sure makes me happy, I do miss everyone.I probably won't visit any quilt shops, cause I get to them pretty regularly, but you never know. It's according to how close I may be to one or more of them.LOL

I will be glad when we get this week started so it will soon end, we will then go to Charlotte, NC and we have relatives there that plan to visit with us, and I am pretty sure that some of our friends from Va. are planning to come there also. They camp a lot and I think that is what they are planning to do, and that way they can come visit as though they lived nearby. I am excited about seeing "friendly" faces .....LOL...
We decided the weather is so bad that we wouldn't try to find People, Places and Quilts today. There also is another quilt shop in the phone book, Sew and Sew on Main St. here in Summerville, plan to check that out also. So am looking forward to Friday.
The weather reported just said it is supposed to clear up tomorrow and get warmer by Wednesday. Good news ***VBS***
Hope all of you are warm and dry and quilting memories...catch you soon, Bobbin
Hope to have pictures of both quilt shops by the weekend....

We will arrive there on Sunday night, we are traveling there after we get through here on Sunday evening at 4pm. DH says its about a 5 hour drive, so will make for a long day. We are hopeing that we will be able to close early, so we can leave early. That will depend on the Scotts rep.Whatever he decides will be ok, after all we are trying to promote their products.
Here is our schedule:
Tues. 3/17 Lowes 1104 Market Center Blvd. Mount Pleasant, SC 9am-2pm
Weds. 3/18 Wal-Mart 1317 North Nain St. Summerville, Sc 3pm-8pm
Thurs. 3/19 Lowes 770 Daniel Ellis Blvd. Charleston, SC 9am-2pm
Fri. 3/20 Off
Sat. 3/21 Home Depot 190 Marymeade Dr. Summerville, SC 8am-4pm
Sun. 3/22 Home Depot 7554 Northwood Blvd. Charleston, SC 10am-4pm
I hope this fits into some of your schedules, I would love to see a fellow quilter while we are there.Also, If you know of any quilt stores that I can go to on our Off day, I would appreciate that also.
It's almost time for us to go to our event for today, and I sort of dread it, cause it's supposed to start raining here shortly and that always creates a lot of anxiety for DH and the rep
cause we are not allowed to let the race car get wet. So will have to see what the afternoon is going to bring.
I plan to TRY to finish my red work today while hubby is working. I have been reading a lot, but must get back to doing something productive.
Hope everyone is busy Quilting Memories, Always, Bobbin

We are in our second week in Atlanta, Ga. The weather the last 3 days has been beautiful.The trees are in bloom and the grass is getting greener, a beautiful sight,BUT, The weatherman says its going to start raining and turn cold....YUCK.... I am so tired of being cold. I keep telling myself that Spring is just around the corner ***VBS***
Have you had any warm weather where you are, or are you still having cold weather?
What are your plans for this spring? Got any new quilt plans? How about quilting memories and staying warm, now that's what I'm talking about********
I have been reading, I love to read historical Romances ( my DB calls them hysterical romances,heehee)I am on my 3rd book in less than a week. I have to finish the one I am reading then I have one more....
I also bought myself several (7) quilting magazines, I am still trying to decide on what I want to subscribe to. I have eliminated only one, I have bought and read 2 Quilters Home, I don't think that would hold my interest and I didn't find anything in either magazine that I would want to make.I purcased 2 Quilter's World,1 Love of Quilting, 1American Patchwork and Quilting,1 Quilts and More,1 Quiltmaker and 1 American Quiltmaker.I have previously seen all of the above except American Quiltmaker,although I have only read (this time) the Quilter's World.I know there was several more suggestions, and I will purchase at least one of each, before I make a final decision.
This really shouldn't be such a difficult decision, but for me it is....
Next week we will be in Charleston, SC. I have been through there a few times but never spent any time there, so I am looking forward to getting to see some of the sights there. All my family thinks my DH and I are crazy, as we just like to look at all the things "GOD" made, not much interested in man made things at all. Although we have been told so much about what a beautiful old city Charleston is, that I hope to ride through a few times. I don't want to miss anything ***VBS***. Also, we want to see the beach, I have seen several of the Atlantic Beaches, also now, several of the Pacific beaches. They are all beautiful, and all so different. Maybe this time I can at least get my feet wet ***AnotherVBS***
I have a phone call to make, so am going to get up from here and do that, take care of yourselves and if you live anywhere near where we are now or in Charleston where we will be, email me, I would love to meet you.

The picture of the traffic is showing all of you the traffic we were sitting in this afternoon after our event was over.We were on I 85N, trying to get back to our motel. There was a wreck, we saw 4 cars,and it took us 2 hours to get back here.This pic really doesn't do it justice, but you get the idea....But we are here now,and glad of it***VBS***
The picture of the race car is the one my DH hauls around. We had quiet a nice turn-out today. It warmed up nicely and the people came out. It always amazes me the way everyone enjoys looking at the car, but more importantly how they enjoy "touching"it. It reminde me of myself, the way I love to touch FABRIC...I walk through clothing stores as well as fabric stores and touch everything that is close to me, I just like the way fabric feels...Am I crazy or are you like that too?
Gotta get off here, its bedtime and I am tired and sleepy, so hope all of you have a good night and will check back tomorrow.
