Quilts for Obama at the Historical Society of Washington DC

Jacob & I had a very busy day today!
He went on his first subway ride.
We went to a free quilt show - this was my favorite quilt on display. (More are in my flickr.)
We then walked around that area of DC a bit. (Saw the 6th & I Historic Synagogue, National Building Museum, & the Law Enforcement Memorial.) Photos in my flickr.
Once we got back to the car (The subway car was full at @ 12:30 - I so can not imagine the crowds on Tuesday...) I fed Jacob for what seemed like forever. Funny aside, I drape a receiving blanket over him - just in case... Well today was probably the coldest day so far this winter, so I was wearing a wool sweater over a long sleeved T. I decided to take off the sweater - one less thing to get out of the way of the faucet. An old perve watched me taking off my sweater - while I stared at him! (I felt a tiny bit bad for a guy who wanted my parking spot, but I was able to send him to another spot.)
We then went to the quilt shop (where I forgot to get a seam ripper...) where I got a new rotary cutter, some thread & a fat quarter.
Guess what else I got at the quilt shop? Chocolate. Does your quilt shop sell "high end" chocolate? (Or something else that is rather far removed from quilting/sewing supplies?) Anyway, I knew it was there - I had just avoided it in the past, but I had to wait after pulling my three items. So I got to look around. The chocolate that I got has cashews & ginger - to things that I like to I made the purchase. Its not bad... The chocolatier is in West Virginia - DeFluri's Fine Chocolates.
