All week long I’ve been thinking I’m going to Delaware on SUNDAY ---- but it turns out that Sunday is the day I start TEACHING there –
Which means, I GO TO DELAWARE TOMORROW!
HOLY MIXED UP CALENDAR!
I’m now running around the house, unpacking a trunk show, adding what I need to it for the different classes I’m teaching this trip, putting it all back in bags and packing my suitcase!
I did NOT finish Florabunda – it’s still in progress…there won’t be time to post pics tomorrow I don’t think…but at least I don’t have a flight at O-dark-thirty---My flight doesn’t leave til 11-something!
I think this picture is SELF EXPLANATORY:
HINT ---Take a look at the batting…notice that there is still border on the roller needing batting between it and the backing.
Do a grumpy moan and head for the chocolate --- Yes – the Easter Peanut M&M’s were 50% off and there is a back-up stash in the drawer ---
Things are at a stand-still until I am sure the travel stuff is packed and ready, and then I’ll work on this more tonight.
But in between everything else, I DID manage to get THESE done:
I’m all caught up! So what if my batting is short, and I’m flying out tomorrow….?
Here are the blocks on my very small design wall. I can’t fit much more on it than this…I might have to start pinning everything on top of the Jane Stickle quilt that is hanging behind my Long-arm! The more blocks we do, the more I like them just block to block to block without sashing in between….There are a few different dye lots of the cheddar fabric going on in here, and I like how it makes the background not read so flat – it’s got some depth to it because there is more than one shade. And the red --- I love how that reads hot against everything else.
And this came in the mail --- I’m tired of stupid hotel irons that you have to unplug-replug after 15 minutes to reset. My Clover iron bit the dust ---and I have ZERO desire to replace it. I found this on Amazon:
It’s a Petite Press by Dritz ---it has 3 heat settings…and it has its own little rest attached. I’m hopeful for it because it is light weight, and will travel easily. Do you have this iron? Do you like it?
And frankly, the best part of the clover mini iron was the bag it came in….I tossed the iron, kept the bag, and the Petite Press fits right in it --- I’ve put this in my suitcase for its maiden voyage to Delaware tomorrow ----wish me luck with it.
While I run around getting all my stuff together --- I’m leaving you with a video of Sadie showing off for Karen yesterday --- Sadie LOVES Jeff, and she loves treats---she’ll do tricks for me, but NOTHING like she will for Jeff. The funniest thing of all is pointing your finger at her and saying “BANG BANG!” She rolls on her back and holds a “dead” pose --- hysterical!
Have a great Friday Eve, Everyone!
