Late last Sunday, I finished the binding on my table runner made from scraps from my first quilt top. As a result, this is my very first completely finished quilting project! WHOOT! I free motion quilted it myself! It's not perfect but it's 100% me! I'm hoping to send this off to my mom in the next week. She'll not mind the imperfections!
Last week I was in Charlotte for business. When I checked into my hotel, I found the perfect knitting chair in my room (how did they know I was a knitter?). Unfortunately, I didn't spend enough time here at the end of the work day.
One of the best parts of the trip was when my plane landed in Charlotte, I had the cab driver take me directly to Charlotte Yarn. What a wonderful bunch of people who work there! Remi, the owner, remembered my name from the call I made that morning to make sure it would be ok to come in and knit for a bit. She also made sure I was included in the order out for a very late lunch. Sandy and I sat and talked while eating. She has faced a lot in the past year and she has made it through - she is so inspiring! Harriet drove me to my hotel so I didn't have to take a cab (which would have been perfectly ok) and told me all about her visit to Stitches South. Not only were the people so nice, it's a really nice store with loads of yarny yumminess! The only bad thing was that as I went to take a picture of the store, my battery died. Charlotte Yarn will be the first place I go to the next time I'm in Charlotte!
While traveling is fun, it's always great to be home!
