vacation?


My husband has been on off of work for the past few days, thus the lack of posting. We are getting ready to leave on a little trip. Notice I didn't use the word vacation? I doubt there will be much rest or relaxation. Although I could use heaps of each. While we are gone are going to be celebrating our 11 year anniversary! Woo-hoo!
I've got the bento box finished, and will do a proper post when I get back.

Also, I am going to be the speaker at my sister's quilt club on Thursday, so I am packing up about 30 of my favorite quilts to show and tell. I'm very excited about it.

Be good while I'm gone! ;)

I know exactly how you feel. We're off this week too...sailing. I'm not sure how relaxed I will be with my two little ones, but I will try.

Have a terrific time. Knock'em dead at your sister's quilt club.

Have a good trip. Maybe you can get in a few "vacation hours"!! You really do deserve a real vacation. Thank you again for all your work on the fun quilt-a-longs.

Happy Anniversary! Wow, 11 years! It hardly seems that long ago sometimes, and other times it does. I hope that you have a nice anniversary and a nice trip.

Your Bento Box is beautiful, I love the colors!

I love your Bento Box. I haven't made one yet, but bought the pattern a couple of years ago. I think I need to look for it. Yours is beautiful.
Happy Anniversary.

Have a great trip, and congratulations on your anniversary!!

"I'll be packing up about 30 of my favourite quilts...." LOL! I love that! I can't imagine having made 30 quilts, and you'll have to leave a lot behind :-)
Bringing 30 quilts is a treat for your audience!

Happy anniversary! Even if wherever you're headed isn't a true vacation, I hope you enjoy yourself and have a nice time with your husband. I'll keep an eye on things while you're gone. ;)

Sounds like you're going on a working vacation. That sounds like an oxy moron to me. Hope you have a great time and congrats on 11 years! I have all of my star blocks finished and just have to work on getting the top together. Thanks a ton for doing this QAL;)
