Cleveland OHIO…


I love this sign…It takes a lot of work to make your DREAMS whatever they are come to reality…and all of us at Primitive Gatherings know this…we had a rough couple of days….Luke and Jess were involved in an accident on the way home from Florida…they are fine…but our truck and trailer are not…Nick left me in Ohio to go and take care of the situation…Jake & Amy who were on their way to Cleveland OH, picked me up and delivered me to Crown Point IN, where I had a workshop and lecture the next day.  They dropped our Lancaster trailer and then the next day met Nick, Luke and Jess in Cleveland who had purchased a new trailer and loaded it from the wrecked one from FL.  Our truck and trailer’s fate has not been decided yet…they are still in KY waiting for the insurance adjusters opinion of whether “Vin” our first diesel truck will continue on or go to pasture…Did you know that our truck had a “black box” and they could verify the personal accounts of the story and that they can determine all sorts of things???

My son Luke did an awesome job of controlling his truck and trailer during the rainstorm, while a reckless driver lost control of his car, hit the center wall and shot out over two lanes and right in front of his truck.  Luke seemed to see it all happening and by the time he hit the car he was only going less than 40MPH and did not swerve his truck and trailer!!! The officer on the scene told him he did one hell of a job…it could have been a massive pile up…we have been told the driver of the car will survive…Luke is very relieved.

Being on the road is not easy and it wears on you….but the show must go on…so please come visit our booth in Cleveland OH at the IX Center…Jake and Amy have the booth set up and are ready for you…the show hours from 10-6pm…Tomorrow through Saturday!!!

We want to say HI and welcome to our new friends we met in Atlanta, Lakeland and Lancaster!!!  We appreciate you stopping in to our booth and supporting our “mobile” quilt shop!

Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support over the past couple of days…it sure helps!

all for now…LB


Happy st. Patties day!


Sending you all lots of “luck”…
