Day trip to Brandon...

Ugh... 6:30am is for the birds!!! I hit the road at about 7:15am by the time I showered up and finished scraping my van windows... This photo heading west with sun behind me... It was a wonderful drive. Not much traffic... Got to my destination by about 9:45am...
I drove out to meet M from Sipiweske Quilt Designs and her group for a quilt day. I had a lovely day with them, and it was really nice to have met M...
I feel spoiled, as M gifted me with these wonderful goodies...
The Charmed Gift Bag is a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop, and in it was a wonderful rustic looking pincushion... Thanks M! You are a sweetie! 8-)

I managed to get my machine applique done on this secret project... Yippee! Tomorrow I will be piecing and attaching the border...
The drive home found the sun behind me... again!! Best way to drive long distances, with the sun behind you!!! 8-)
I made good time, with a rest stop, and was home by 6:45pm... Very tired, but had a great day!
Took this photo of an old farmyard while driving... Hubby scoffed at me snapping a few photos along the way! I got, "That is worse than talking on the cell in the vehicle!" ... Yup! I wouldn't do it if there was lots of traffic, and there was barely anyone on the road...
But it is still a good photo!!! Well I like it! 8-)
Thanks for the invite and lovely day M!!! I loved seeing your wonderful creations, in the "whole" and in person! lol! 8-)

Time for bed....

Yes, it is a very nice picture ... but I must agree with R - taking pictures while driving is dangerous! I must admit to talking on my cell while driving - although since only three people know my number, it never rings!

I'm glad you had such a great day....even though it was long and tiring.

I love the pincushion you got! How far did you travel, are there no mountains around you?

Looks like a wonderful day. I also take pictures out of the car window, but only when someone else is driving. The drivers here are too crazy to try it behind the wheel!
