Have a great time and enjoy your children! I am really looking forward to those tutorials. This is definately going to be a "homemade Christmas" this year.

Tine said...

Enjoy your last week of summer! Looking forward to hearing about your week when you get back :-)

Any chance of a stocking tutorial? My husband and I have stockings that fail miserably at their one job of being able to hold stocking stuffers, so I want to make us new ones, but really don't have a clue where to start.

Anyway - enjoy your week! This just means great fall weather is closer!

There are benefits to not having school-age kidlets anymore. Our schools started back last week. I didn't know there were still places where schools resumed after Labor Day, like when I was a little girl.

Have fun!

Have a fun vacation! I hope to get in on the Christmas project. Stockings would be fun to do! My grandma made our family stockings every few years, but hasn't since we all started getting married 6 years ago, so the hubbies and grandkids don't have any nice ones. But I know anything you choose will be great!

Karen said...

Enjoy the time you have to spend together. Look forward to your upcoming tutorials;)

Alissa said...

Enjoy your time off! The baby quilts you have been showing us recently are beautiful.

lera said...

I can't believe how productive you have been! Oh my! I love all the baby quilts. So very lovely. Almost makes me want to have another one. (Not that I need much convincing ... :-)

Enjoy your week off. You deserve it, you crazy-quilting mama.

Oh, I'm so glad to see that you're taking a break! I just sort of wrapped my own break and feel like I already need another. Enjoy it.
By the way... I love the last two baby quilts. The simplicity of all of them was just perfect.

i want fabric said...

I have just discovered your blog, after being "encouraged" to take over an internet fabric sales business, which I am desperately trying to learn. Think I need to learn to quilt too! I'll be back, hope your week is beyond delightful.
