On the Road to Pittsburgh

Margy and I were up early and headed to PBI at 4:30 AM and arrived there quite quickly.  It was amazing how little traffic there was but then as we thought about it there was more traffic than we thought there would be.  We ate quite an expensive breakfast at the Airport Burger King ($12.00 for two French toast sticks, one small coffee, one medium diet coke and a bottle of water.) and now we sit by the window watching the activity in Newark, New Jersey.  We earlier thought another quilter was on the plane but upon closer inspection of his t-shirts it was “Rehab is for QUITTERS not QUILTERS.”  But you can see how easy that mistake would be at 5:30 in the morning. Margy is busy stitching while watching and listening to an I-Pod video on quilting from Debbie McCaffrey.  We will be happy to share how you can get these FOR FREE on I-tunes.  Thank goodness we have a tech person in Margy’s son Jake.  He loaded it for her yesterday.  I thought we could share some pictures that I have that perhaps you haven’t seen.  DSCN0143 Margy has been working hard on our row for the Flamingo Run.  Stuart is the “Sailfish Capital of the World” and we thought it would be fitting to do something for Flamingo Run in that vain.  Here he is.  You will be seeing lots of him.  He part of our Row for the Flamingo Run Quilt, he is a table runner and there will be more projects using him or should I say them in the future.  We have found the perfect border that reflects Old Florida.  DSCN0145 We are excited about it and we hope you are too.  The Flamingo Run Shop Hop is ten years old this July and we are planning to have a wonderful three days.  The dates are July 16th, 17th and 18th.  The shop is sponsoring a bus trip on Friday, July 17th.  Stop by and sign up for the Run.  The passports are $8.00 and the bus fare which includes your passport is $30.00.  We will be sending as many blogs as time will allow from Spring Market and the shops and all that we will be visiting.  We are even more excited when we share our trip with you all at Market Review on Thursday evening, May 28th from 4 to 8.  There will be presentation at 4:30 and 6:30.  Don’t miss out on seeing and hearing about all the new stuff.
