Part II

As most of you know already, the road trip took us to Columbus, Ohio, for our sixth annual TNNA show.

Some of my highlights...on the PA turnpike with my sister Lisa.

Entering the show and being overwhelmed and excited all at the same time. It is a special treat that we are able to attend and see all the new designs, styles and yarns. Check out Leslie's skirt and handbag....too cute!
The girls at Volia! I promise, if you have never tried needlepoint or haven't done it in a while, it is the perfect summer project.


The Amy Butler booth was unbelievable. Need I say more?

Maggie with my mom. Notice the book in my moms hand. We went to 3 book signings. How great is that! I was really inspired by the Lacy Little Knits book. It might be a little advanced for me, but I would like to give it a try.


The 2007 TNNA will go down in the books as the best ever. We are very grateful that we are able to attend, but the best gift of all is spending quality time with your family. I am blessed to have 2 wonderful sisters and a totally cool mom. My life doesn't make sense without them........

I can't knit OR needlepoint but I couldn't wait for the update on your blog to see where you went. I saw Leslie's first but am so happy to see your photos and hear your account of the trip. You gals know how to have a good time. Did you do any yoga?

Looks like fun—deadly for the credit card—but fun. Nothing like retail therapy!

What a great trip! I have 2 sisters and a great mom too. We haven't ever done a girls trip, but I think we should definitely follow your example.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool!

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle. That's not the point. Pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

What a fun time! Check out my blog - I have a link to a KAL for a lace stole. Maybe lace wouldn't be as intimidating that way!
