Early Morning Departure

I'll be leaving Wisconsin very early this morning to go the Chicago.  CHA doesn't begin until tomorrow (set up and Education Day) but I am doing an all day training session on the Teresa Collins Stampmaker and I have to be there by 10 a.m.

I'll be sad to be leaving Albany House before breakfast - the photo above shows the table set for the first course (fruit and bakery) we had on Saturday morning.  This was followed by delicious maple glazed bacon and spinach pie.  My sister is an amazing cook!

Of course there is plenty of juice and coffee or tea.  Aren't those green glads beautiful?  (I looked up the plural of gladiolus and found gladioli, gladioluses or gladiolas so glads sounds good to me!).

I have a few supplies with me and I worked on a couple of projects that I'll be posting during the time I am at CHA.  Most of my posts will probably be about the things I see and do at the show.  On Monday I'll be sharing some highlights and tips that I learn in the Stampmaker session today and I'll be posting those on the Scrappy-go-Lucky blog.

Here's one more look at the start of our delicious breakfast.  If you plan to visit the Madison, Wisconsin area sometime you might want to make a stop in Albany for a couple of nights.  It is a handy location for lots of the sights and I don't think you can find a more amazing array of breakfast dishes anywhere!  The bed and breakfast is called Albany House and you can find their website HERE.

I hope you have a lovely Sunday and that it isn't too hot in your part of the world - the predictions for the Midwest look very steamy!
