So much for practicing last week so I could post while here in Paducah. I can't seem to get the photos to post.

I am having a great time and seeing lots of beautiful quilts, plus have left a little of my money at the vendors too. For those wondering about the weather we did have some showeres here yesterday.

For those that don't know the area around Paducah and this part of the US has had lots of rain and there is lots of flooding. The town of Paducah had to install the flood gates which necessitated the moving of the show from the convention center and Expo center which is between the floodwall ane the river so it is not protected from the rising water. Our paducah hostess said the decision was made just last weekend. I can't imagine what the people in charge had to do the last few days before the show opened.

There were a couple of empty buildings at the Paducah shopping mall so they are the new buildings for a lot of vendors and some of the quilt displays. The majority of the large quilts and the top winners plus the miniatures are in this giant pavillion that looks like a large marshmallow. The small wallhangings hace been hung at the Baptist Church. All the classes are located there too. There is a bit more driving but everything is working out fine.

Will close...please excuse my typing. Typing on my phone is not the easiest.

One more day here before we head home.
