There was a lot of people at the quilt Fiesta, but my knowledge of human nature often allows me to beat the crowds.
Most people are creatures of habit, especially older people, and when it comes to older people it will be hard to find people any older than the ones that show up for the quilt Fiesta. And when it's time to eat, no matter what else is going on they will stop and eat. So I just show up at lunchtime and between the dining area inside the event, and the food vendors outside the event, a lot of people are busy eating which means there's less people walking around for me to have to deal with.
This morning was great, with sunny skies and 70°, which made me want to get up and do something. So I went to Walmart for groceries first thing, and to Ross clothing store, where I picked up my Amazon delivery from a locker. Then In the same parking lot, I got some red beans and rice from Popeyes. After getting back to my boondocking spot, and after eating the aforementioned red beans and rice, I moseyed over to the Hunter jumper arenas. I watched that for a while, and then down the road to one of the event buildings where I spent some time at the "Quilt Fiesta," looking at all the things talented people can do with random bits of cloth.
Picking up my Amazon package worked just like it was supposed to. Amazon emailed me a code number; I put that code into the multiple lockers code machine that was just inside the door of the "Ross, Dress for Less" clothing store, and an entry in one of the 20 or 30 different sizes lockers sprung open, and there was my package inside.
I don't know how Amazon can keep up with millions of packages daily going to a million different places, which has always seemed impossible. And then generating a code number for these lockers that will only open that locker once, and then it changes. The logistics of all that are mind-boggling to me.... Of course, my mind is easily boggled.
It's not just about quilts, it's also about all the stuff it takes to make quilts.
There must've been 100 quilts of different sizes and patterns on display.
Single bed size quilt. It certainly took a lot of effort.
A baby bed size quilt of an old lady making a quilt. I reckon this took more than a little bit of talent to do.
The quilts nowadays are so fancy and so artistic there were very few quilts that I saw that were made like my grandmother used to make.
This is made just like my grandmother made, she had to make her own clothes, and nothing could be wasted, so bits and scraps of cloth were sewn together instead of throwing them away so she could make it into a quilt to keep warm... Waste not, want not, was her motto.
This could be a quilt for anyone that misses the Gulf of Mexico.
Since I like rodeo, I had to like this quilt. Although its not actually a quilt, its more like a picture you hang on the wall
