iPhone-o-Gram! The Journey Home!

Hello from the Lansing Michigan airport!

I made it through security with one bag weighing 49.5 pounds, the second bag weighing 50 pounds even, and my suitcase weighing 48.5 pounds.

It's pretty safe to say that my luggage is at weight limit!

My body is also at weight limits! We hit Culver's for lunch on the way to the airport! :-)

It's not as bad as it sounds, but we couldn't resist the sign out front announcing the flavor of the day as turtle!

Rosemary and I both chose a bowl of soup for our lunch and shared an order of cheese curds followed by single scoops of the turtle flavor of the day!

I so need to get back to the gym!

The other laugh that came was upon going through airport security – one knows a quilter by the scraps of fabric hidden in her shoes!

I was sewing on aunt Elsie's featherweight this morning with my socks on. The triangles must've stuck to the bottom of my socks and into the shoes they went unbeknownst to me.

Please let the ability to laugh at myself and with myself follow me to the end of my days! I've learned that I am very good company to have!

Hehe, I have found fabric in my shoes before too. Sometimes my daughters cat put it there, other times it was stuck to my sock as well. I don't sew with shoes on, or should I say, I can't sew with shoes on. Have a safe trip home, and a wonderful Holiday season with your family.

I love Culvers too, I do not have one though and stop at it when we visit our daughter in Wisconsin. LOL at the shoe and fabric

Arrive home safely!
Beware of the threads that will stick on the back of any sweater you'll be wearing.... At least I always end up hairy bunny, anytime I think all threads were taken from my clothes LOL
Happy Thanksgiving ahead!
Love from a dark Amsterdam,

One of my very favourite quotes is "You should always take your work seriously, but not yourself" - from the late great Dame Margot Fonteyn.

Oh, man, I wish there was a Culver's in my home town. The closest one is 112 miles away, a bit far to go for an ice cream.

Bonnie, I live in the land of Culver's and curds, and even better than Turtle frozen custard is "Turtle Dove!" Mmmmmm. Love that chocolate mixed in with the Turtle custard. I'm so lucky to live here but my waist isn't. LOL

Bonnie said...

Bonnie have a good journey home. Take sometime to do you. Pamper you, read a book, sew for you or do the hot tub with your husband. Rest relask and smell the flowers.

When making a specific number of block sets, I've had the last triangle set go missing before, and sure enough, it's stuck to the bottom of my sock! LOL Of course, I don't ever look there first....I spend way too much time searching the dang room! :o(

SUPERQUILTER said...

That is so funny trying to slip fabric triangles through in your shoe. As if you do not have enough of them, LOL I love it and I am sure you will laugh every time you think about your triangles. Glad you had a good time, but I am sure it feels good to be home. Happy Thanksgiving.

You'll have to let us know what you worked on for your plane trip. It's great that you can laugh at yourself. Wish I had a cup of turtle. :-)

And a Quilter's husband has strings on his clothes too. I found a long lost HST in some laundry today. Been cleaning out the utility room... I'm going to have to make something with all the Triangles I have cut off my bindings. The tote is getting full. I heard this week, I am in your Midnight Flight Workshop in Portland! sew excited!!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Did you ever find your ipod? I'd be lost without mine and my panda would be sew lonely!

Sue's Stitchin' said...

I quilt in my winter crocs - furry lining. There are so many threads and snippets of fabric stuck to them that you can't even see the fur any more. It's like a multi-colored decoration around the edges!! Sue K

We loved having you at our Ann Arbor Guild and wish you good times in your travel. Hope you can visit us again.

HelenMarie said...

i have to ask... what are cheese curds? ...something like cottage cheese? I can't imagine eating that with soup and icecream!

Elaine said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabric in the shoes!!!!!! Not a lot of room to store fabric, but a good hiding place. Can't wait for the mystery to start!!!!!
