On Friday afternoon we had the option of meeting at our bus and going to Hancock's (of course, we had to check that out!). It's crazy big - just like a big warehouse with tons and tons of fabric...
We also went to the Quilt Museum, which was really fantastic. They currently have a miniature exhibit that was truly amazing. Another let down for you who are reading this - they didn't allow pictures! If you ever have the chance to go there, make sure to do it. There were so many amazing quilts. The most interesting/different? One made from duct tape and one from beer cans! It's crazy how many different designs and colors of duct tape are out there. The quilt really was kind of cool. As we were standing there commenting on it, and checking it out...wondering how in the world she quilted through it, a man came up and said he was her husband! She was also in the building, but was at a book signing. He said that she had to actually make each hole with an awl. Thousands and thousands of holes! YIKES! The creativity of some people is just amazing to me!
What they did allow us to take pictures of in the museum were some beautiful stained glass windows. My mom owns a stained glass studio/shop, so I'm always interested in pretty stained glass pieces. I think she should whip up some of these!
We walked to the Finkel Building because there were more vendors there - including Primitive Gatherings. I wanted to talk to Lisa, so we went there, but then ran out of time (we had to catch the bus to Hancock's) so I really didn't see the rest of the vendors there. When we went outside there was a taxi (of sorts)...
And on a totally different topic than Paducah...I haven't shown you any kitty pictures for awhile, so in case you are wondering...Ozzie and Callie are just fine, and are still as adorable as ever!
Sorry about the super-grubby ironing board that these are on! Ignore that and just look at the earrings and scissor fobs!

Have a great day!
