6 States and 15.5 hours and we’re breaking for the night. We’ll be back at it early tomorrow.
Good thing he travels well and doesn’t mind his crate
We brought our own mugs with us.
We did it, Packed last night and we’re off early this morning.
Nothing to show, nothing interesting to share.
I got home last night and I’ve been in a frenzy – unpacking, doing laundry, packing to head back to Maine for a month, CLEANING my house which I have to say was a complete mess, putting the design wall away, winding skeins of yarn into balls, getting my hair cut….
I’ve got 45 minutes now until Keith meets me for dinner and my next post will be from the road. I’ll be glad to get into some kind of a routine if only for the month. Keith of course will be traveling and back here frequently but Chesty and I are going to stay put the entire month of October.
I snuck off by myself for just a little while this afternoon. Tomorrow I head home.
I’ve got my trip home booked for Wednesday and then on Friday, I’ll be heading back to Maine. I have a stack of tops/backs/batting all waiting to be tied although I do have a couple tops that need a wider batting. If I have room in the car, I’ll bring some from home otherwise I’ll get it there.
In addition to seeing Mom and other family members my trip to VA allows me to see babies! Siobhan and Savannah were here today.
I left Maine today and rather than going home I made a side trip to Virginia. I don’t know if you’ll see any sewing from me this week but I might get a little knitting done and if I get the urge to piece something I can always raid Mom’s stash.
I look forward to this week all year. It’s very busy and I work long hours but I love working alongside these quilters and you know I love Maine!
I’m spending the next few days with fellow HeartStrings members, can you guess what I’ll be doing?
Yep, that’s my tying table with the first quilt all set up ….and here’s me getting ready to work!
The Vikings lost again – so sad but I did get through some items on my list which is good since I’m heading to Maine tomorrow.
In case Adam is reading…I should tell you that I sent Caleb the Vikings shirt and told Adam he had to send me a photo of him in it. They’re Bucs fans and were very pleased with the outcome of today’s game.
The red one still needs blocking but this one is done – it could probably use some blocking too but it will have to wait and I plan to wear it next week.
The pattern is Seafoam – a free download from Ravelry.com
The yarn is fingering weight, knit on size 8 needles. It was hand dyed and gifted to me by my sister Deb and I think this was the perfect use for it.
It’s kind of hard to get a good photo, the beads look lighter in the photo above than they really are – they’re all shades of blue, turquoise, and green and go well with the yarn. For some reason the green is not photographing well – not in the beads or in the yarn.
