Time to get another post in tonight before sleep time. If I can manage to report on Friday, I will be happy. We have a busy week ahead, so time might be precious. It is now Sunday evening and we are at Branson, Missouri.
There are not a lot more photos from Friday, as most of the day was spent in and around Paducah seeing what we had not already seen.
The day had an interesting start when I woke at 1am to use the bathroom. Unfortunately there was a problem with the flushing process, and the water did not stop, and kept running until it overflowed!! Thankfully there was someone in reception, who came to the rescue and half an hour later, the mess was cleaned up. I will say that the situation could have been a lot worse!!! And I am surprised that the bathrooms in the US don’t have drainage holes in the floors for a flooding situation.
I managed to snap these 2 when they were chatting to “Mr Quilt"!
One of the antique quilts.
Mary Kerr gave us a talk about each of the quilts, and the history that went with them.
By the end of the day, we were a bit (lot) footsore and were resting outside, waiting for the bus to pick is up.
Ricky entertained us with his piano playing, and also his amazing flute. He talked about his quilting journey – Joining the Dots. We all have a start date, and an end date. Everything that happens in between is your life journey, that joins the dots. Our quilting journey tracks our life from our first quilt, to our progression from then on – it maps out our life. We remember the events that happen in our lives as we are making those quilts. He told us the stories of his life, some tragic, but all leading him to where he is on his quilt journey. It was a fantastic night.
Following the show our bus drove around town to see the Dogwood trees, that were lit up at night. And there endeth another day.
