It was after 10pm by the time DH and I got home last night…he had a massage scheduled for 8:30 --- and after picking me up at the airport, we were running late, so there was no time to drop me off at home before he headed in….and at this place, if you are late, they charge you anyway. ((Hey, I’ve HAD that massage therapist job, and I completely understand why!)) so I had no choice but to go with him.
Sadie was in the car with us…and she loves to go go go wherever we go. We dropped DH off at the massage place, and then I headed to Target to run a couple of errands and pick up some things Dave had mentioned we were out of. And I was powerfully hungry by this time because the last place I had really eaten was breakfast in Columbus, OH --- the rest was snack crackers and fruit or trail mix through the travel day ----
"Welcome to MOE’S!!"
That’s all I wanted. I made a bee-line to Moe’s southwest grill and ordered up a chicken quesadilla and ate it on the patio in the beautifully warm North Carolina evening as darkness descended. I heard all of those sounds that I love the south so much for --- peepers, birds and frogs, and noticed for the first time that the fire flies are out! Fire flies are one of the “Welcome Summer!” things that really make me smile.
Yep, I'm home!
Sadie and I walked after dinner waiting for Dave to finish his 90 minute massage, which meant he wasn’t out until 10pm, and I was SO TOAST by the time we got home that I just crawled into bed.
Which brings me to now.
I’ve got SO MUCH STUFF on my plate!
I honestly don’t know where to start.
When I walked into the studio to type this quickie post this morning ((Which is turning out to be not-so-quicky, but you know how I write!)) I came face to face with the piles of STRASH that I had left on the floor the day before leaving for Illionois. Something will have to be done with them today. Mail has stacked up, book orders need filling, there are more edits to look over this morning as well.
I’m sure I’ll get back into the swing of things, but THIS is what I had to see this morning:
Yes, this is an artistic shot…on my DRIVEWAY because this quilt is so big there is nowhere to lay it out! And the morning light gives the BEST photos. The bottom right corner is the one I just finished – it’s just laying there, testing for fit…and YES – I did not screw up the configuration!
Here is the section just laid into place..I left a bit of daylight around it so you can see how it will fit….
And this red border is the start of the LAST fill in section to be done on this quilt. What I will do after the piecing of this is completed, remains to be seen….I honestly don’t know if I’ll start another one, but I’ve sure loved the process of having this ready to go with me wherever I travel. I haven’t had to think about a “take-along” project. This is SO PORTABLE. And because it is just grab-and-go, and I don’t work on it at home --- I’ve never been bored with it. It’s been a travel thing ONLY.
Except maybe for tonight….because I am dying to get that 3rd corner section on there!
So that’s it from here –I need to get a move on and get this day going – you’ll hear from me again soon I’m sure…hard to shut me up for long!
