Day One–Wisconsin to Houston International Quilt Festival

IMG_4115My day began before 5am when multiple alarms went off at various timed increments.  We didn’t want to oversleep!  Before I got on the bus to journey to the International Quilt Festival in Houston, apples had to be delivered to the Middleton-Cross Plains School District and then some to Basset Street Diner.  I was riding along with my husband so he could drop me of at the bus pick up.  Just before 7am, I boarded the bus.

I so (SEW) lucked out and have a double seat to myself!  Here is my early morning selfie!10644995_10154754959670543_9078193889514274019_n

My girls sent with me three of their little stuffed animals to take with me on my journey and take pictures of along the way.  You can see they’re nice and cozy in the seat next to me!

We stopped for lunch and a bit of a shopping break at ‘Peace and Applique’ in Rochester, IL.  It was a wonderful shop that I found a *ew* pieces of fabric to buy.

Unicorn, giraffe and monkey enjoyed the shop as well!

Before we stopped for the night – we saw fields of cotton!  It was so pretty – it almost looked like snow or frost over the fields!  We are staying at a Drury Inn and I highly recommend it!  We made it before seven so we got THREE FREE drinks (alcoholic ones) and an all you can eat salad/nacho/hot dog bar.  Hard to go wrong with that!

And now – unicorn, giraffe, monkey and I are all tucked into bed.  We’ll be getting up early to start our journey first thing in the morning.
