Travel vs Quilting....Traveling Won

Lately I've been busy with going here and there. It has been a busy few months for sure. My quilting has been at a standstill. Before my last trip I had a few stitcheries prepped; this is the ONE and only I made while away. A hoop was used but sure doesn't look it. Sorry photo turned for no apparent reason on me! (as life these days I guess)

Naturally coming home after a few weeks there is mail and plenty of it. Once I started dividing the pile out into junk mail, bills, and quilt magazines I got to the FUN STUFF. My dear friend Sheri sent me a gift just cause! Check out her blog because it is CA-UTE!! Oh and one more thing, she has a new book in the works!

Cute stitchery. My pictures do that sometimes too. Weird.

How nice to come home to a gift just cause! Surprises are so much fun. L-o-v-e the fabric!!!

When you travel, quilting doesn't always fit in. That's just the way life works.

I can't believe you only finished one of the stitcheries!. Maybe you could look at them like a BOM. That would be so do-able. I will be happy to "check" up on you to make sure you are staying on track. LOL Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?!

How sweet to come home to a surprise gift in the mail. The fabric are wonderful, I've never seen that line, always something new. The stitchery turned out great....keep them coming.

I rarely have control of my pictures. Sometimes I am lucky just to get them to post. I love the Simple Abundance.

For awhile my photos were turning sideways, too. I found that if I then went into one of my photo programs and resized that photo and then brought the newer-sized one into my blog, it would NOT turn sideways. It is very weird.....but it worked. Lately, none have turned sideways (but watch...probably tomorrow it will start to happen again...LOL)

The stitchery sure is cute. I'm sure you'll be back quilting in no time.

Cute stitchery. Life can be so busy sometimes!

I always bring something to work on when we travel, but rarely get to it. You would think that I would know better by now. :0)
How fun to have a special gift waiting for you amongst the bills! Especially a surprise gift. A cute one at that!

Even sideways, the stitchery is very nice. :)
