Road Trip

So after a wonderful workshop on Wednesday, Maribel and I decided to check out the "local" fabric shops. We traveled from Auburn, AL to Columbus, GA. We went first to Sew Much More and found a wonderful shop with LOTS of fabric and notions. I bought a little more of the Moda for my workshop project and a Christmas fabric for a finished quilt top. I also bought a pin cusion to sit on the HQ16.
Isn't she cute?

Then we headed off to an heriloom shop. We had told Maribel's family that we wouldn't have any trouble getting around since we had the GPS. Well, shortly after we left Sew Much More, the GPS died. It will not run when plugged in and it charges very slowly in the car. So we called the next shop. They gave us directions but we kind of went around in circles for a while. We finally stopped at a Welcome Center where a very nice lady give us maps and directions and we got there. I asked if we could plug in the GPS while we were there and then we shopped. I got a pincushion that sticks on the design wall and some whip stitch piping that I think will look really good on this workshop quilt.
Then we headed home. The GPS died again before we left Columbus so we got the maps out and found what highway we were headed for and pointed ourselves in that direction. And, what do you know, we found it and got where we were going. (BAD GPS!!)
