Travel is great but enough was enough.
After the four-day quilt retreat followed by a four day library conference, I was very, very glad to be home and to be relatively unscheduled for the weekend. I now have all the central quilting done on Crossed Kayaks (only the borders to go), and all the Delectable Mountains blocks are pressed, ready for trimming.
There was also time for some domesticity. For some odd reason, comfort food seemed appealing--I made "from scratch" mac and cheese (the first time in a good ten years) and an apple pie.
And--LATE BREAKING NEWS!! Look what is now in my hot little hands:
My Seams friend Judy, who faithfully treks to join us every month all the way from Evanston, Illinois, trolled and found Liberated Quiltmaking for me at a Milwaukee-area Half Price Books location. I don't understand how she did it either, but find it she did. Judy truly has her fingers on the pulse of commerce. And check it out--Amazon advertises copies for $74.99 and up. Mine was a mere $12.49.
A huge yay for Half Price Books and an even bigger one for Judy.
