Road Trip to Madison

I am back from a most marvelous trip.  We (my BFF#2 and I) started out last Thursday on our way driving to Madison, Wisconsin.  Von asked me what projects I took with me for this trip.  I took three.
All had a small start on them but were easy stitches to work when the light may not be the greatest.

Not a lot of stitching was done on the trip.  We were too busy!
It is a long drive so to break it up we stopped at several places along the way.  Our first stop a few hours in was The Inspired Needle.  They were still getting the shop back to normal after the St. Charles Needlework Galleria.  It is so fun for me to shop at a good needlework store.
Lots of threads.
Then we had lunch nearby at Rustic Knead.  Very good sandwiches.
Not too far away, our next stop was Tomorrow's Heirlooms.
There was a ton of stuff in a small space.  You could spend a long time just going through everything they had.  But we had to move on.

Two needlework stores in one day, that is the definition of hog heaven for me.
These are the things I bought:

So on to Madison we went.  We got there late in the afternoon.  BFF#2 has a gold card so we checked into the hotel and went to see what snacks they had in the concierge room.  We were hungry and the pot stickers and baby spinach quiches were delicious.
Then we met friends at an Italian restaurant.  I had the walleye but could only eat part of it.  It was great.
We were so poop we just went to bed when we got back to the hotel.  What a fun day!
