A couple of bits of business before I continue packing and getting ready to leave on our anniversary trip early in the morning. I'm trying to get at least 6 of the setting blocks for the Seeing Stars quilt-a-long quilt done by tonight. Two are completed, two need final seams and two are still in pieces. I think I can make that deadline. I'm pleased with the fabric choice. I wanted the quilt to have a "blue" feel. I hope this print isn't too overwhelming for the stars. We'll see as more get completed. I also want to get my quilt for the mini swap planned. I can sew it when I return.
Many of you asked where we are heading on our trip, so I thought I would share a few pictures from our destination. You may recognize the place from the landmark in the picture. I will tell you it's a very small private inn (only 3 suites). Breakfast every morning, a beach to walk and run on, forest to hike in, and best of all...alone time with my sweetie!
I want to thank everyone who came by over the last couple of days to attend the party. Many of my regular readers came...I'm so glad...and I met some new bloggers as well. I will be visiting your blogs when I have a bit of time. I appreciate every comment!
Last order of business, thanks to the magic of the random number generator the winner of the "Pretty in Pink" mini quilt is...Sara from the Quilting Bookworm Sara said, "Congratulations on your 100th post! And your 25 year anniversary! Where are you going to celebrate? That is so exciting. I am nowhere near that (100th post or anniversary!) I love the mini quilt, I like the pinwheel side the best. I love pinwheels and how they look!" Email me your address and I'll get it in the mail today.
I don't know if I'll be blogging while I'm away next week. The laptop will be with me because we use IChat to communicate with the kids. I'm looking forward to sitting on the deck and cruising flickr for inspiration and catching up on my blog reading as well as filling up my bloglines with new, fun crafty blogs! I may even be hand sewing some hexagons for some English paper piecing if I can get everything gathered up in time. Until next weekend....take care bloggy pals!
