The day started very early. Vicki Mc came to my house, we loaded up and went to pick up Pitty Pat. First stop of course was Starbucks!!!
Then we were off and running again. Actually, Joyce was driving. Mr. OLT allowed us to drive the surburban so that we would have plenty of room.
Next stop: Viking Says Sew in Greenville. What an amazing place. Vicki picked up a new seam ripper, Pitty Pat ordered all of her stuff for fall retreat, Joyce added to her library.
Our next stop was Inman Quilt Cottage. Joyce picked up some bright fabric for some special persons Christmas quilt.
Pitty Pat found a book for prayer shawls. Then Vicki bought a great kit for the Bow Tucks purse. Becky was so nice to me that I almost stayed and spent the day but, I was told that we had a long way to go and a short time to get there (country music??)
Joyce finally got me back in the truck. You should see how she has me shoved down into this bag. I think that tomorrow I will demand a window seat. Who does she think she is any how?
We did find our next stop: School House Quilts. We almost missed the turn, but Vicki has sharp eyes and spotted the small sign under a mailbox.
Sure wish I had one of those cookies right now.
We stopped for lunch at Fatz.
Next on the travel log was Marti's Patchwork in Black Mountain, NC.
Next stop: Ashville Cotton Co. in Ashville, NC
Joyce picked up some special fabric for Summer Fun 2 .Vicki bought some of the cutest mushroom fabric. I could hide under one of those and maybe they wouldn't see me.
FINALLY ALL OF THE SHOPS ARE CLOSED. CAN WE EAT NOW?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't think they were EVER going to stop for supper, but, they did. We ate at Cootie Brown's in Johnson City, Tenn. The food was great and the beer was cold (very important after a long FART).
This brings my total milage to date to 1665 miles with more to come tomorrow. I understand that breakfast is at 8:15. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh, by that time I will really be starving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I left my special pen at home, so Joyce is just going to have to type my signature in.
Roada--------------that would be Roada F. Tripp
