Internation Quilt Festival, Rosemont, Illinois

This last weekend at the International Quilt Festival in Rosemont, Illinois, was AMAZING! I've never seen so many quilt shops and vendors come together before in my life! There were about 475 different shops with all sorts of goodies to sell! And boy did I buy! :) I found some great angelina fiber colors, and of course some Bigfork Bay Cotton Company quilt kits. A few yards of fabrics, including a neat rainbow trout print! And then I purchased and had Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy sign his (& her) newest book!

Then of course I tried to sign books.....nobody bought any! :)

At the end of the day we stayed at the Double Tree hotel right next to the expo center. It was almost midnight when I crawled into bed and felt something bunched up at my feet. The sheet on top of me was bunched funny, and I HAD to fix it. When I pulled back the sheets I realized that where the fitted sheet should be (on the bottom) there was only a flat sheet, and it wasn't even close to reaching the foot of the bed! There was a good foot of mattress pad showing! Well, I had to fix that too. There I am at midnight making my bed in a Hilton chain hotel....and after a long day of over 11 hours on my feet, all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and go to sleep.

While I was tearing the sheets off of the bed and trying to make it again, I noticed something dark on one of the sheets. Upon further inspection I realized there was a huge hole in one of the sheets! Seriously?!?!? At a Hilton chain??? Give me a Holiday Inn any day. Needless to say I provided much entertainment for my hotel roommate! :)
