So...all day yesterday was spent traveling.  I probably shouldn't even attempt a blog post for today, but didn't want to mess with the somewhat regular blog posting routine I've had lately ;-)  

As much as I LOVE Montana in the summer, I cut my stay short and flew home earlier than planned.  It's hard being away from home when the entire family isn't together....my husband could only stay a little while....my oldest didn't get to come at all this trip....my youngest was ready to go home (after the first day...ha)...my headed-to-college son missed his friends...all our company had come and gone...and since staying forever (my preference...ha) wasn't an option....I packed up and made arrangements to come home.

  I think it was a good decision, as even though our flight didn't arrive until after midnight, my son and husband were arguing over who got to pick us up from the airport ;-)  My husband said he even missed Max!!!  

Today will be spent unpacking, doing laundry, grocery shopping, going through mail, etc.  The unpacking shouldn't be difficult.  I had two suitcases and two carryons most of which was filled with fabric and jeans.  (I don't know about you, but these days finding a good pair of jeans is almost as hard as finding a bathing suit that fits...ha)

When all those chores are done, I have plenty of emails that require replies, blog posts that are calling to me, and Flickr groups that demand attention.  I did skim Google Reader enough to notice that my sister has a new post...Amanda Jean's quilt along is updated, Michele put her birthday fabrics to good use, Cindy has a new and cool seam ripper.....there's much, much more I'm sure.  I need to go back, read them thoroughly, and share my thoughts ;-)  For the love of Solids swap partners have been assigned...need to update my mosaic...research my partner's likes, favorites, etc....very exciting!

Quilting related posts to come soon...promise...in the meantime here's another picture from our photo shoot!  I'm off to do that laundry now ;-)

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. Isn't is nice to be missed :) I, for one, am glad you are back in the land of hot and humid...haha...because that means my last few days before returning to work/school can be spent sharing coffee with you (via telephone, of course).

  2. Are you thrilled to be in Florida with all your hot weather? Hope you get settled in soon, get the laundry done, and get to sewing!

  3. Glad you got home safe. I can totally relate. I was gone from May 25-June 26. There was so much unpacking, e-mail, mail, blogs, etc. I'm still not caught up! It is hard to get back in the swing of everything when you get home, isn't it? Anyway, hope you settle in soon and get to have some fun sewing!

  4. Welcome Home! sorry you had to cut it short - but really looking forward to catching up with you and seeing what you you've been working on!
