This was the morning sky at 7am as we were making our way home from the cabin.
Not too many people out on the road at this hour, but as we got closer to Winston Salem, driving traffic had picked up and red tail lights followed red tail lights and I knew ---It is a Monday and the masses are on their way to work.
I guess that means me too – after so many days gone!
The van is unloaded and I was greeted by both cats, Chloe who lives outside, and Emmy who lives inside –both demanding attention. Or food. Or both.
Check the stack of mail on the dining room table.
Unload the cooler and put all the food from the cabin away.
Put the suitcase on the bed ---tackle what’s inside later!
Pour myself a beverage and sit down to start writing this post while making a mental list of things that have to happen between today and Thursday when I leave for Texas.
I think all of our ducks are in a row!
I’ll be teaching at Stitchin’ Heaven in Mineola through the weekend, and really looking forward to meeting up with the gals there. Then I’ll head to San Antonio for a few days – planning on spending some time at my friend Irene’s while I work on book quilts for the next book….We’ll play Monday through Friday, and head to Houston on Saturday, leaving on the cruise on Sunday. Whoot!
Okay, my fingers are rambling…
Last Night’s Relax & Stitch!
I did get a bit of chiding for breaking my own plan of HANDWORK ONLY when I showed the bear paw blocks yesterday ---but but but! When an idea hits you have to run with it, right? And doesn’t the fact that I was avoiding football give me a good excuse?
I did pull out the old pink and brown Dear Jane quilt and got several fans hand quilted through the evening as we watched Madame Secretary and The Good Wife. Gosh, I love curling up with the hand quilting – I need to do this more.
But first….Haircut at 10am, Massage at 2pm to get all of the kinks out before we do this travel thing again ---
I have more Show & Share photos to post. I have more quilt shop photos to post.
But right now my morning is running crazily away from me and I better run and catch it.
I'm tackling that huge stack of mail on the dining room table and getting the book orders out that have come in while I was gone.
And YES. I am still planning on Quilt-Cam TOMORROW night at 9pm EST!
I have a feeling I am going to sleep THROUGH that massage---
