We had a great time visiting my in-laws in New York! Even the air travel was easy. It was also exciting to see the quilt I gave my mother-in-law hanging over the back of her couch and looking like it was made to be there (which it was), although I neglected to take a photo. You'll just have to trust me when I say it looks great in her living room! I felt like I was rediscovering an old friend when I saw it.
My husband and brother-in-law were very obliging and took me to The Quilting Bug in Massapequa. What a stunning assortment of batiks! The shop owner entertained the guys by showing them the longarm ("It's like driving!") while I checked out the fabrics. I couldn't resist these two.
I also picked up some blacks and whites for my strip quilt. I just got a little of each, except for the one on the left, which I like a lot. The one on the far right has a little red in it for sparkle.
And what would traveling be without travel photos? This is hardly the Eiffel Tower, but it was the most interesting thing in the Indianapolis airport. Indeed, I've never seen another like it. Would you buy an iPod from a vending machine?
