On the road

I haven’t been home the last several days because we decided to take a trip to Maryland to visit family & friends. We left early Wed morning and will be heading back home tomorrow morning. We’ve been able to pack in quite a bit of visiting while we’ve been here in addition to visiting all our favorite restaurants ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday night we went to a 70th birthday celebration for one of DH childhood friends. He still owns his family bar where we used to run karaoke for him years ago when we lived here. It was great to see him and several other folks that used to frequent the place ‘back in the day’ ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m on the left next to the birthday boy and ironically enough that’s us in the picture on the screen behind us!!!!

We stopped by to see my Mother, spent time with my niece & great niece and got to see the grandsons. We’re tired from all the running around but we’ve made the most of it!!

say “Cheese!”

QAL updates

I’m up to 52 blocks on the PositivityQAL but didn’t take any pictures before we left and as luck would have it I’ll only be home one day before I’m back on the road to Charleston for the Van Gogh exhibit. Me and my friend Mary are leaving Wed morning coming back on Friday – just a short trip.

As for the finished Summer Book Club quilt, I posted it online and one of the ladies I used to work with asked to buy it for her DIL who is a teacher! So, when we get back tomorrow I’m packing it up for shipment ๐Ÿ™‚ Another very close friend and avid reader mentioned she really loved that quilt so I’m going to make another one and surprise her with it. I’m going to try to enlarge the paper pattern so the books are not so small and since she loves murder mysteries I’m going to try to use a lot of ‘spooky’ fabrics, LOL

I have not made any progress on either APQUFO challenges from June or July…UGH! One of these days I’ll get those quilts finished!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


That’s all for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
