Poking My Head Out

For all you know, as I declared myself on a blogging break, I've been hunkered down much like this this prairie dog. Well, I'm poking out from underground and coming clean as to my whereabouts; the Goodneedles have actually been on the Great American Road Trip!  Breaking it down, by the numbers:

8, 114 miles
291 gallons of gas
20 hotel rooms
18 states
(three "new to us" states, making for a lifetime total of all 50 states!)
10 quilt shops
6 National Parks
and 1 very tired, well traveled*, pup!

I'll fill you in on all the details this next week...
 it's all good~  
Life is Good!

*Hannes' would like it  known, for the record, that his lifetime total is now 26 states!

Wow _ Deborah that sounds like one amazing trip- Was it harder to find quilt shops than other trips? I am just curious whether there are fewer because of on line shopping or if there are more in certain parts of the US.. I often read that LQS are closing because they can't compete with on line and big chains like Joann's..
I am sure you had a grand time and that you found some treasures on your journey.
Regards,
Anna

Congrats on all 50 states. I think I have only just barely passed the halfway mark, but I'd like to shoot for all 50! Can't wait to here where you have been!
