Of all stupid things we could have forgotten to do, we didn't update Gabby the Garmin before we left home. If we had, we might have noticed that she is only programmed for the Eastern US! Apparently it's a memory capacity thing. Anyway, we were not able to plug in our St. Louis destination, either by street address, zip code, township, NADA.
We had a vague idea of how to get to our hotel because we stopped at a McDonald's for lunch and looked it up on Google Maps. Things got complicated, though, when I missed a turnoff to I-44 in downtown St. Louis -- stoopedest highway sign I've ever seen! We knew we could continue on I-64 to the perimeter then down to I-44, but finding an exit to get to the hotel was another challenge. All this in rush hour traffic on the most complicated spaghetti junctions I've ever seen ...
The important thing is we made it and we were ready for a new day this morning. Jan (The Colorful Fabriholic) met me at St. Louis Bread Company (a/k/a Panera) and we made our way to the fabulous community center where the St. Louis MQG meets. Without going into details of the meeting, just be assured a great time was had by all! They even laughed at my jokes during show-n-tell!
After lunch with some of Jan's bee friends, we managed to hit THREE quilt shops.
