Quick Post Monday

I got back in late yesterday after spending very long and tiring days in classrooms learning a bunch of new awesome things I can do with my Statler. The retreat was very informative and of course fun to be among so many wonderful longarm quilters. My head is spinning with ideas.

The house was clean when I came through the door and these roses waiting for me from hubby. I'm writing this post because I cannot wait to show you what he made for me while I was gone. It is this wonderful spool rack to hold the larger cones of thread and he also made spots on top to place my bobbins. The rack holds a bunch of spools and I've placed my order with him for a second one to hold the numerous other spools of thread I had tucked in a drawer. I just love it. It is perfect! He spoils me. Thanks Sweety...I know you'll be reading.

While I was gone I didn't read comments to my last post. Now with so much else I need to do this week I won't answer but thank you for all wonderful comments left. (glad you enjoyed that pie!) Also a quilter named Barb left a comment saying she was at the same retreat. I had no idea the comment was left until I came home. I cannot contact you because you are a No Reply Blogger.

Now to tackle the mail. Along with the usual monthly bills I see some fun packages along with quilts to be quilted in the stack. I'm suspecting a RAK too.

Until next time...enjoy your week!
