Live from NJ- It's Saturday Night!

We're home! We left NH at 8 a.m. and got home at 3.30- 342 miles. We were doing fine til we hit New Haven, then it was slow til past NYC. We probably lost an hour total, sitting.

Friday I had my final class, called Bodacious Borders. It got out a little early, so I went thru part of the vendors again. Then the banquet was Friday night. The food was so-so, as most big banquets are. But the speaker more than made up for it. It was Mark Lipinski, and he was the funniest person I've ever heard. He went from one thing to the other- how he got into quilting, how he started his magazine, how an issue got banned by Joann's Fabrics and made national news, stories about his days as a producer-and all the stories were so funny! He also had a lot of his quilts with him, and they are absolutely gorgeous. And Superior Threads had a big cone of thread on the table for each person!

We packed last night, got up early this morning, had breakfast and left for home. It's so good to be home! Steph and Sharon took good care of the cats, and Steph and Toast were here when we got home.
