Road Trip, Day Two

Bast! That hotel bed was comfy! I slept great. When the ladies got dressed, we all went down for breakfast on the terrace.

I was hungry!

Then we walked around and looked at all the contestant quilts,

and the special show quilts,

and more show quilts (these were from Egypt).

I found my namesake, a longarm sewing machine named Millie.

And so (to her everlasting delight), did Mom!

Then it was time to hit the road. After driving a couple of hours, we stopped for ice cream.

Finally we crossed into Massachusetts. (Hey Mom, next time, move me to the left a bit...)

 Holy BAST it was a long drive home.

 I am SO GLAD to be home and out of those traveling duds you have NO IDEA!!

You ate lots of different foods on your holiday, Millie - might need to go on a bit of a diet now that you're back home. I was surprised by how few people seemed to be at the quilt show.

Fast trip, mum does those too. She was looking at the schedule, maybe a trip to Iowa next year. She could mix it up with cousins. If your mum's quilt is there that is.
