Our trip home was swift because I had to be back for the quilt guild board meeting Wednesday night. This was the transition between outgoing and newly-elected officers and it could not be rescheduled. As it turned out I had six meetings from Wednesday through Saturday (at two of which I presided and for two of which I took notes).
I took a bunch of necktie hexies (my years-long hand-sewing project) on the trip but I didn't sew a stitch. I went to one quilt shop -- Cotton Cupboard in Bangor, Maine -- and bought two fat quarters and a pattern. I admired the beautiful wool tartans at the Gaelic College in Cape Breton (Nova Scotia) but didn't need to buy any yardage.
