2) I'm wearing my favorite jeans, t-shirt and a sweater! Layers are important since I am generally very cold or very hot - and there is no way of knowing which way that pendulum will swing at my age!

3) My cooler is full of Diet Coke and Crystal Lite Tea! The Diet Coke is for me and the tea is for my best girfriend who is always up for a road trip. And since we live 500 miles away from each other there are many quilt shops along the way.

4) I'm listening to contemporary gospel on the radio! Or if possible I am streaming in Toginet Radio on my phone so that I can listen to Pat Sloan, Mark Lipinski, or the many other quilting podcasts. Might as well learn something admist all the laughter in the car.

5) No one can sit in my backseat because it's full of food and fabric! While there might be a notion or two we all know these road trips are all about the fabric! And food is important because we don't want to have to waste our time stopping for food - those are moments stolen from a good quilt shop.

6) The bumper sticker on the back of my car reads WILL STOP FOR QUILT SHOP and PANTHER CHEERLEADER ON BOARD! Dear daughter must make herself known even if I won't let her go with. Teenagers UGH no time for drama on a quilty road trip.

1. I'm driving a '56 Venetian Red and White Corvette, with the top down.  Her name is Baby.

2. I'm wearing my Crazy Quilt Jacket, my jeans with my custom embroidery designs and a tee, with a touch of embroidery, (can't have a naked tee), saddle shoes, and cat eye sunglasses.  I have my Android in one pocket and my ipod in the other pocket.

3.  My cooler is full of water, freshly ground coffee beans, cream for the coffee, chocolate and nuts.  All necessary items for energy to visit ALL of the quilt shops.  I wouldn't want to miss anything! A small coffee maker is packed beside the cooler, of course.

4. I'm listening to my oldies playlist on my ipod in one ear, while listening to navigation instructions from my Android in the other.  I just can't miss any quilt shops! I might miss something really special.

5. No one can sit in my back seat because there isn't one.  I plan to use my Droid to find local Post Offices and mail my special finds home.  When I arrive home it will be like Christmas all over again!  Coolsville man!

6. The bumper sticker on the back of my car reads...  Hold the phone daddy-o!  No one puts bumper stickers on Baby (a '56 vet). Baby has a custom plate that reads QUILTR1.

7. I wanna give a shout out to Ruth's Stitchery in Colorado Springs, CO and the education team at Handi Quilter Corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City, UT.  Thank you for your patience, inspiration and willingness to continue to provide more ways through education, to grow my quilting talents,  knowledge, and confidence.  You are all a true inspiration and gift to many.

2.  I'm wearing: sweats, they are the most confortable for sewing, and quilting

3.  My cooler is full of": diet soda, and snacks , to get me through the day without making several trips to the kitchen, so I can sew and quilt all that much longer, with fewer interruptions.

4. I'm listening to"  the TV" well sort of listening, I pay closer attention when Eleanor Burns,  Sewing with Nancy, and Fons and Porter are on.

5.  No one can sit in the backseat: because that is reserved for my bassett hound, as she waits patiently when I go into our local joanne fabrics,  and the very back seat is in the garage, so I have room for all my purchases.

6.  the bumper sticker on my car: is non existant, this Van was my first brand new vehicle, and I just can't put a sticker on it, but if it did, it would definately be quilted related.  Like I brake for all fabric stores.
