Hey, everyone, here we are the day after the first day of the Statesville QNAE Show.  Everyone came yesterday because of the impending storm which is evidenced in the picture above.  Between 3 and 8 inches of snow fell last night and now freezing rain on top of that.   We haven't tried to get to the Civic Center to load up our store.  Might not be able to do that 'til tomorrow.  In the meantime we're holed up in a hotel just waiting (with a whole bunch of other people stranded)......with a husband who is chomping at the bit to get on the road.  Every county in NC is under a storm warning, according to Jim Cantore (Weather Channel).  You know when he comes to town it's BADDDDD!  And we don't even own a scraper.  When we lived in Northern Indiana this was a common occurence, but here in NC this is a big, no huge, event! 

The show yesterday was very well attended, lots of vendors and door prizes for all!  But Mother Nature had other plans for today....more later. 

We've just been asked to fill a spot at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton VA.  So we'll hope for better weather the last weekend in February and hope to see some of you there.
