I am on a short road trip yesterday and today with my sister-in-law, and since she is also a quilter I didn't have to whine and beg to stop at any quilt shops. In fact she insisted because she needed to pick up one of her sewing machines at one of the shops in Rapid City. We actually stopped in 3 shops yesterday. And the shops are selling their 2016 license plates for Row By Row now even though their patterns will not be available until the official start date of June 21.
The purpose of the trip is to pick up my granddaughter Sophie to bring her back to my house while mom and dad finish the packing for their big move east over the weekend. But it also gave me the opportunity to have supper with 3 Rapid City friends last night. And SIL Kathy went to supper with friends of hers too. She lived here for about 15 years and has lots of friends here.
And we're stopping in one more quilt shop this morning before picking up Sophie and heading home.
