What I’ve Been Up To…

It’s hard to believe it’s been two months!?

Whilst on vacation I…

  • visited with my family in Texas
  • shopped and sewed with my sister
  • visited with an old quilty friend who had moved to Dallas
  • vacuumed 120 gallons of water out of the basement at my parents, removed wet carpet, padding and tile
  • went to a Quilting Retreat hosted by the most gracious Judy Laquidara from Patchwork Times
  • worked on a couple old UFO’s at the retreat
  • work on a couple new projects at the retreat
  • found my quilt MoJo at the retreat
  • went on an unofficial quilt shop hop with my sister
  • visited an amazing shop called Batiks Galore
  • watched the Longhorn Cattle Drive at the Ft. Worth Stock Yards twice in one day
  • ate Mexican food when ever I could
  • ate Chicken Fried Steak when ever I could
  • ate sausage biscuits and gravy when ever I could
  • probably gained 10 pounds
  • visited my Aunt and Cousins in Kansas on my way home
  • brought my Aunt home with me for a 10 day visit - dodging tornados on our way across Indiana
  • visited my brother in VA while our Aunt was here
  • played cards and dominos every chance I got
  • attended the AQS Lancaster Quilt Show last week
  • visited with many Quilty friends during the show
  • spent too much money at the show because now I have my MoJo back
  • caught up on (over 3 days) all of AMC’s The Walking Dead shows that have aired since it began again in mid-Feb.
  • decided that 3 days of zombie apocalypse is too much because I dreamed about zombies

But I am officially done with vacation and all the fun stuff has come to an end… today I go back to the gym… then I’ll probably need a nap!

It was wonderful seeing you in PA, thanks for picking me up and taking me to see all the gals. I've gained weight myself, and I am enjoying eating too much. Back to eating less.

Glad you're back online. Hope to see more quilting going on!

It was great meeting you at the retreat. See you next year?

I was thrilled to meet you after so many years of knowing you online! Glad to read that you had safe travels, if a bit disconcerting weather wise. Would never have guessed there was anything wrong with your quilting MOJO....you accomplished so much at retreat.
