An Update and Some Tid Bits

The day after I posted about the robins nest I went out to check on it. Now there is only 1 egg in the nest. And I haven't seen a bird sitting in the nest since then. So I don't know if the cats got the eggs or what happened. I will continue to keep an eye on the one egg and the nest. I hope we get at least one little bird.
Last weekend we visited my sister-in-law at her home in Frankenmuth (about a 2 hour drive from here). The lilacs were all in bloom as were several other flowers. We enjoyed spending Saturday night with her. Sunday afternoon we headed to Lansing (another 2 hour drive further south) as I had a meeting there on Monday. We got to Lansing, got checked into our hotel room and decided to do a little shopping. Well, wouldn't you know I spotted a Quilt Show sign. So we decided to follow the signs. We arrived at the Quilt Show at 3:40 and it closed at 4:00 o'clock. We decided to make a quick run through the show. In the parking lot was a VW that was covered with a quilt using all bug fabric. I had planned to get a picture when we came out of the show but of course is was gone. We did a speed walk through the quilts and saw some beautiful quilt and some ideas for future projects. It was great to see a couple of vendor friends that I met through the Thunder Bay Resort retreats. The show featured 48 vendors and it looked like they had some beautiful items for sale. It was probably a good thing we didn't have a lot of time. We did manage to go to a Quilt Shop in Frankenmuth and one in Lansing. And of course I did spend a little bit of money.

Hi Pam --- I'm guessing you were at the "Going to Pieces" quilt show sponsored by the Capitol City Quilt Guild. I am a member and was at the show all the open hours --- sorry I didn't see you come in. I thoroughly enjoyed the Thunder Bay Quilt Retreat with Edyta Sitar and was sorry when they were discontinued.
