Chicago, Ill.

We have been here for 3 weeks now and have 3 more to go, I feel like we should have rented a house,although we have moved from North to South and fromEast to West. there are some great people here and some beautiful country. Not to fond of the big town (Chicago). the traffic is horrendous,don't think we will have to go back through there again...WHEW****
My friend that lives here took me quilt shop shopping last Tuesday. Of course I enjoyed that and hope she did also. We went to Tammy Tadd Designs shop. That is one of the prettiest shops I have ever been in. Everything is so bright and lively. Her personell is great too. If you ever get a chance to visit there ,be sure to go. You'll be glad you did. Sorry I didn't take any pictures, I forgot....I HAD my camera, but got excited and just forgot....
While we were up here a couple years ago, we met this guy ( my hubby was working with him),Mike and his family,so are planning to have dinner with them, maybe Monday or Tuesday,so definitely am looking forward to that. They are a great couple and have 2 wonderful children.
The weather here has been just beautiful here the last 3 days,that makes being away from home easier. I sure am homesick.I am hoping that the powers that be, will let us go ahead and finish up all our days before we come home.Then we can come home for good....I don't plan to work next year. Hubby says he isn't sure what he is going to do, but I am ready to BE AT HOME***
Hope all of you are having a great 4th. weekend, we are off the next 3 days, but don't plan to do anything....resting sounds good to me...
Take care everyone and keep on quilting memories, Bobbin

We are from the Chicago area. Villa Park to be exact. Wondering if you had any stops there. We'll be up there for DH's 50th high school reunion in September. We have been away from home for over a month and are anxious to get home now - we'll be there Tuesday. I set up my featherweight tonight and I'm piecing a table runner. Have a happy 4th!
