Winding down in Nashville

Hi everyone …

Sorry the posts have been sparse of late, but wow did I ever have an amazing time at the AQS Nashville show. I have so much to tell you, and so many pictures to share, that I’ll get to them soon.

I’ve now moved from the hotel where the show was at, and am staying in downtown Nashville for the next two nights. There’s just so many things I still want to do here, I might as well do them while I’m in the area. I’m going to head out to the Smoky Mountains on Tuesday, then make my way up through Virgina, into Pennsylvania, then New York, and back into Canada.

I’m heading out to dinner in a few minutes, and to explore some of the downtown area of this great city.

I apologize to those that have submitted photos for the Lazy Days of Summer contest, I’ll get them posted just as soon as I can. I really did not anticipate being so incredibly busy at the AQS show, so I’m behind. Keep checking back, as there are many fabulous submissions. Keep them coming… we’ll have our own on-line quilt show!!

Did you see??? The Quilting Bloggers directory surpassed 1,500 members today! Wow!! This represents 45 different countries, 50 US States, and 7 Canadian provinces. In my wildest dreams I never thought it would grow so much and so quickly. Thank you to everyone that has helped spread the word.

Also, did you see the new section I added? The Quilt Shop Locator which will be a Google maps-based locator of quilt shops. Imagine this, you’re going on a road trip, and being able to click on the state, or province or country you’ll be visiting and see the quilt shops where you’ll be travelling. That’s the basic idea behind the Quilt Shop Locator site I’ve built. Let your LQS know, please, as I’m sure they’ll want to be listed, and listings are 50% off, during this introductory period.

More soon, now, I must go get some dinner, and explore this wonderful city of Nashville!

Michele

    What route back through NY are you taking? Crossing the border up past Watertown or over near Buffalo? I am over closer to Buffalo if you come this way.

    Safe driving – can’t wait to hear your stories!

    If you come up Route 15 in Pennsylvania, take a detour to Wellsboro (it’s just about 10 minutes west off of the Route 6 exit) — you’ll find a wonderful quilt shop on Main Street called Needles. The owners, Katie and Mary, will treat you like an old friend!

    I can’t wait to see the AQS pictures & what others have submitted & congrats on the 1500 mark!

    Anya, I’ll actually be driving straight up I-81. It looks like Wellsboro will be a little too far out of my way this time around. I’m actually not going to be able to spend as much time in PA as I’d like this trip, so I’ll just have to plan another outing in the future. :)

    Regina, I went through the Buffalo area on the way down, and will be going up the other side coming back. I’ll probably cross at Ogdensburg… I like it there, and it’s 45 mins from there to home. We’ll see, I found the drive to get to the Interstate pretty long coming down, so I may cross at Kingston instead and take the 401. It’ll depend on my need for a Timmy’s coffee!! haha

    Cheers,
    Michele

    I wish I had stowed away in your luggage!!! Will you be in Lancaster,PA? If so, I really envy you!
    Safe trip!

    Hi Janet,

    I’m meeting up with an old friend in Harrisburg, PA, which is very close to Lancaster. Not sure how much time I’ll spend in PA before heading home. I’m delayed by a couple of days with changed plans and trying to avoid the bad weather.
