Here is the Embassy Suites Hotel where the Nashville Cross stitch market is held...
I hate to say it but I did not even get to visit all the exhibitors. Some offer stuff that I do not sell in my shop like yarn and needlepoint but there were a number of cross stitch people I just did not get to see. The problem was that I spent so much money at the ones that I did see... and remember, we have to get all this stuff home. Normally when we are on our own there is plenty of room in the car but this year there will be 4 of us and our luggage driving back together. I really had to stop somewhere with the buying. Anyway, I still had a fabulous if exhausting time.
Now we are in beautiful sunny and warm Port Charlotte. Here is a picture of Bruce and Dan and their new best friend Kasey Kane(for those of you who are not NASCAR fans). We met him in the grocery store and with the manager's blessing, he came home with us. Guess that means there will be 5 of us in the car on the way home! He came without luggage though and he doesn't talk or eat anything! He just startles us when we catch him out of the corner of an eye and see someone when everyone else is accounted for I spent this morning cleaning up my website in anticipation of getting pictures of the Nashville loot on asap. There was no room for the printer/scanner the car so I will have to rely on photographs from the camera. We'll have to wait and see how that turns out!
Luci spent about 4 hours with me yesterday entering stuff in my inventory and putting price tags on charts...and we are not finished yet! Man I had fun!!!
