Yea, it's been busy. I feel as thought I spend my week in Vermont. Monday we were in Burlington most of the day to see the Surgeon. Tuesday, in Burlington for the surgery, which by the way went well. The only two tendons in his index finger are now attached and the one nerve that was severed has been re-attached. What is left is for us is to be patient, as time does its healing! Do I have an antsy dh? Yea, to say the least! lol
By Wednesday, it was time to head to Burlington, yet again, to pick-up my registration package. Meet up with my friend Cathy and we had dinner at a great Italian restaurant Juniors!
Thursday was the Champagne & chocolate preview! Would you believe that I did not get one piece of chocolate? Plenty of champagne but no chocolate to be seen. I could have compensated by drinking more champagne, but I was driving! ;o) Didn't come home with much, but did scope the vendors for what interested me for my next visit on Sunday.
Sunday, boy, do I have a story to tell you. Met up with some friends after my class for lunch. We split up and go our own ways, vendor hopping. I get a phone call from my friend telling me that she is being detained on "suspicious activity". What the heck does that mean? We're at a quilt show for Pete's sake!
Well, would you believe someone reported her on "suspicion" of stealing a pattern? So they took her in, plain view of everyone one, into a room. Took everything out of her bag, matched it with receipts. Many of the items were in bags with the vendor's name on them. Some cash register receipt did not have the name of the vendor on them, so they kept all the items from that. All and all, she left behind close to $300.00 worth of paid merchandise. The only reason they did not "book" her was because no one saw her do it! If she wants to get her money back, she has to go the police station with her visa statement and they will refund her. Does that make sense to you? I'm still baffled!
I just cannot believed this! Scary!
Wanna see my small loot?
Fell in love with this wool kit! And of course, I had to have the two new thread cards from Superior!
Not sure I will head back to VQF next year! Wasn't that impressed! Even less so with this recent incident! I'll have pictures of some of my favourite quilts soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
