The Sewing Expo is at the Washington State Fairgrounds through sunday and I finally got to go!
For years I've always worked the weekends and was too tired to go to the shows after work. My boss changed the schedule some time ago so that I could baby sit Aiden on Fridays when my daughter needed me to. He tried to get me to work today but the joke was on him. It was my day to babysit and he knew that he couldn't force the issue. So it was Aidens big day out.
March 1 is his first birthday and sense I got him today, we started out with a trip to the local restaurant and introduced him to the world of Belgin waffles. This was followed by some running around that I had to get done and then picked up great granny and off we went to the fairgrounds. I knew it was a big event, I've had customers coming in from Canada asking how to get to the fairgrounds every year. I didn't expect it to be packed.
It was really packed. I didn't get to see as much as I wanted to though. Great Granny pushed the stroller while I ducked into a couple of booths to look at things. Aiden doesn't like having me get too far away from him when we are out so my time was limited. That and my mom doesn't get around so well either. I wish I could go back again but tomorrow is Aidens birthday party.
I did see alot so sewing machine demos, I tried a longarm or two actually four of them. I need a new car accident to get one of those machines. (Just kidding) The other half would kill me if I called him and uttered those words: NOT MY FAULT again.
I saw a lot of embroidery designs I would love to have had but things were a bit on the expensive side for me.
Note to self: next year take more money and leave GG and Aiden at home.
