Trip to DC

Had a Great time on my trip to DC. We traveled up there on Friday night and stayed till Sunday. We shopped, went sightseeing and ate some great food!! I am so glad I don't live there, I would easily gain 1000 lbs. They have an entire bakery dedicated to cupcakes. They also have some pretty cool museums. We went to the American Indian Museum, the American History Museum and the National Zoo and the Highlight of our trip ~ IKEA!!!!! LOVE that place!!!!
We rode the Metro and took the Double Decker tour of DC at night.

I was a little skeptical at first but it was so worth it!! DC by night is amazing and even more beautiful.

DC is amazing. I love how eclectic it is. There is a little bit of everything there. Actual neighborhoods that have not been taken over by big box stores like Wal-mart. There is character and personality and so so so many little corner restaurants. I could so live there, (if we had a lot of money)
I went with my friend Linda who used to live there and I have to say I am so glad that I did. Not only becuase she was the BEST company, I think I was in a little bit of a quilting rut and now I am so inspired! While at the National Zoo we came across this beautiful mural. I think I was preoccupied with the perfect shirt, but Linda looked at it with the quilting eye and the idea for the perfect quilt was born! We are going to do a zoo mosaic quilt. I am so excited, this will be the first quilt that I actually design. It was great to see a great city in such a diffrent light.
I can't wait to go back!
