This was Sadie last night as I was packing my bags getting ready to leave for Seattle, and on to our Quiltville Alaskan Cruise with Craftours!
She knows what suitcases mean.
And this look just seems to say “Oh, but Mama! You just got home a couple of days ago! Do you HAVE to leave again?!”
Not only that, but I am taking her new best friend Irene with me.
Thanks to Robin, who sent Sadie a post-surgery Lamb Chop present, Sadie will be just fine until I get back.
Hold down the fort, Sister!
We got the results of her biopsy back. They weren’t good. They did find cancer cells in the lump tissue. The margins are not as clear as they’d like them to be, but they THINK we will be good. We just have to watch her very closely, and it is good that we got her in when we did.
Thank you to everyone who sent notes and messages, and cards in the mail! You made a difficult time that much less stressful.
I am ready to rock my way to Alaska!!
Aren’t these cute?
They were found on Ebay for not that much money, and they are super cute enough that if they aren’t all that comfortable, I won’t wear them all day, but just for fun.
Quilts are HOME!!
Fedex made a delivery while I was gone! There are two quilts missing that have been saved for other purposes. Wanderlust is in Colorado for my workshop recording in Golden happening in August. Idaho Square Dance has been saved for Quilts in the Garden in California, which I have heard is a fabulous . They may hang on to Idaho Square Dance until Market, because I will be down there for School House for my new ruler tools, book signings and taping a demo for the ruler tools as well.
I can’t wait to share these quilts with you. The books will be available in September, along with the rulers. I am waiting to start Pre-orders until we are BACK from the Mediterranean Cruise that happens in August because the last time we did this the orders took my website down! That can’t happen while we are out of the country, so if you could please hang on, as soon as I am back on September 1st, the pre-orders will go into full swing and you can pre-order to your hearts content.
Remember with every book pre-order you will get an instant download for the Wanderlust Table Runner to keep you busy while you wait for your book to arrive. I appreciate your patience in waiting for me to be ready for the chaos!
And with that, Irene and I are off to Seattle! I’ve actually written this post ahead so it is ready to go as we needed to leave the house a bit before 4am to be at the airport at 4:30 for check in for our early early flight.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage 1940s Airplane Quilt found in Kansas!
I thought the pink airplanes were very apropos for today!
Whether you travel somewhere near, or somewhere far – there is ALWAYS something wonderful to discover. You just have to keep your eyes wide open so you don’t miss it!
I’ll be in touch from the ship and in port as often as I can.
So looking forward to this time with 50 quilters and my Mom and my two Aunts!
Epic doesn’t even BEGIN to describe this!
