Home, I’m home, but it’s a little bittersweet. The 2012 International Quilt Market was more than I ever imagined, and tho I did miss the kiddos a wee bit, I think I could have stayed!

Arriving in Kansas City on Wednesday, I went straight away to the airport to pickup the wonderfully talented Scott Hansen of Blue Nickel Studios! It’s a good thing, too, because I kinda sorta had his clothes with me! But that’s another story. 😉

From there we went to the convention center…

And picked up my credentials!! Eeeeeekkkk!!!

After the booth was set up, and we were leaving the convention hall, my mouth was dry. It was then I realized I was walking with my jaw gaping open. :-/ I was told I wasn’t the first for that to happen to. 😉

Exhausted I was by this time, so headed over to the hotel to await the arrival of my roomie, the lovely Kristi McDonough, the very talented Shari Butler and her sweet hubster Dan. I can say it was love at first sight! Here we are, two weary travelers(hint: we look much better in the morning) just moments after meeting.

Stay tuned…I’ll talk about Thursday tomorrow. And Scott’s shirts…does anyone want to know about those? Maybe I’ll write about that process, but only if you’re interested. 😉

Love to you!!!

Stash Report…..week 2

Where has this week gone?  I’ll tell you where!  Well……on second thought, this blog is rated G… :-/ Lol!

Ok, let’s try again.  What has been accomplished this week….that’s better. 😉  We started back to school…Joy of Joys!!! Hehehe…  Monday and Tuesday afternoons were spent with a person on my list of favs! My sweet Auntie, she is from Florida, yes, just like my Honey.  My Daddy’s oldest sister, and the person in the world who is most like my Grandma…Love.  We laughed, told stories and cried…all good. 🙂

Wednesday choir practice started back.  Boy, could I tell we had had a few weeks off!!  Pipes were a little rough.

Thursday morning went and had my toes done with Glory and J’s girl.  Hehehe I do have pics of that!  Wanna see?
My wonderful next door(read across the field) neighbor, Glory… She is just as feisty as she is sweet…hope to grow up to be just like her!

 And….guess what I saved this pic under?  Hobbit feet….because that’s what those spacers make your feet look like.  The color?  I did not choose it…I’m more of a pink kinda girl, Glory made me!  Remember, she’s the feisty one. 😉

Oh, my goodness!!!! Did I just show you my naked feet?  I MUST be desperate for material!!!!
Thursday night we had three basketball games….
Friday was a goodbye to a Dear Man, Dr. Calvin Bradford.  You will be missed, your boys did a great job! 
Saturday morning I met with a new client, a new interior decorator, Julie of Decor Flare.  It was a great meeting and I got to say the words, “You better just order a whole bolt.”  Woooooooohoooooooo!!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW GOOD THAT FELT?!?!?!?  Then I was on my way to 7, yes, I said SEVEN, hours of basketball…..the good news? We won!!  The bad news….no sewing.  Although I did get some monogramming done.  Does that count?
So, after ALL my EXCUSES…..my stash report….Let’s just keep it simple…
Nothing In…Nothing out!
(but quite a bit has been ordered…hehehe)

Until next week….oh, it may be bad…  :-/

New Meaning to An Old Phrase

How many times have you said, “What did you do last night?”  Or, how many times have you been asked?  Well, two weeks ago I was running on empty, downing that eggnog shake, because I had been up literally the entire night before!  Well, I take that back….I did go to bed at 5….in the MORNING!  What was I doing?  Well, sewing and playing Words, of course! 

Remember those Christmas dresses mentioned in an earlier post? Well you know about those promises. 😉

Here they are…

And here they are on….

Merry Christmas!
I had thought I was further along, than I was with these dresses.  Then a major distraction hit me head on, and THEN, Tall Guy had to make a trip to the ER for staples.  Get this…at basketball practice, he and a friend go up at the same time, and his friends tooth hits his arm.  No harm, no foul?  Not this time.  The tooth broke off in Tall Guys arm, to be found on the floor later, and, needless to say, sliced his arm like a knife.  Poor boys!  Tall Guy was in the ER that night, and Friend was in the dentist chair first thing the next morning.
AND  we were all at a basketball tournament by that afternoon. :p  I’m thinking a nap on the couch would have been oh, soooooo nice. 🙂
