Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night...

shall stay these quilters from their appointed rounds! LOL! This weekend is shop hop for the nine quilt shops here in Metro Atlanta. Last year there were 13, and I made it to all of them! I think the total trip was 300+ miles, with Patrick's in Covington being the most distance away. This year, my quilting friends and I planned to go to lunch (we must eat to meet!), go to the three here in Cobb County, and go to a couple of bead stores, but Mother Nature majorly interfered with our plans. On Friday night, the Weather Service was predicting severe weather for our area, with thunderstorms, tornadoes, flooding...everything but fire and reluctantly Friday night we called off our plans. Yesterday morning, it was raining hard, a few claps of thunder, but nothing that would prevent a few hardy souls from getting out on the road. By two in the afternoon, it wasn't even raining, so we conferred, decided we would not melt if a few drops of rain hit us, and off we went! We managed to make it to Red Hen, Tiny Stitches, and Little Quilts. While we were in Red Hen, there was a brief cloudburst, but it was barely drizzling the rest of the day. We did our part for the quilting economy, and then had dinner and margaritas! End to a perfect day! I got home a little bit before 11PM. Al was just starting to send out the search party for me.
