Hanging out in Baltimore

I'm in Baltimore for work and decided to spend the weekend with quilt friends. Amy was so kind to let me stay with her and her family. She even put a nice brunch together with some guild friends. It was so nice.

We went to Savage Mill and I was able to go to Queen's Ink and the Treasure Trove antique linen store there. I could have spent a fortune there. We also stopped at Seminole Sampler, one of the best quilt shops in the country.

I had a great time. I hope to come back for the West River Retreat in November.


And can you believe these are back in season already?

Bookshelves and an update from Philadelphia

Our new library bookshelves were installed while I was away in Vegas for work. They look quite nice!
The DH and I are visiting his dad in Philadelphia this weekend. Wednesday I fly to Baltimore and plan to visit my quilt friends there, so it will be a couple of weeks before I update with my weekly projects. I'm looking forward to some "non travel" time soon!

Feeling like Death

Or "death warmed over". Ick. I have the flu, and it's horrible and nasty. I ache like I have never ached before, and my throat is on fire. At work, we joke about having "daggers in my throat" which some poor soul called in with once as his excuse for not coming in. But I really feel tiny daggers, or needles, or what-not, in my throat...
I'm sure I caught the plague from travelling so much, and the recent trip to Vegas. Ugh. So tired. Yes, mom....I went to the doctor, and yes, mom.... I have been resting, and eating.
Anyway, I haven't scanned the last couple of quilts, which I hope to do tomorrow. I hope to be somewhat vertical by tomorrow too.
And to top it off, we got water in our basement from the Chicagoland are flood ing that is going on. I haven't been able to help the hubby witht he clean up because I'm so sick. When it rains....

Quickie Update

I'm about to get on a plane to Las Vegas for work, but here's some of my latest work.
This robot is either putting his heart back or taking it out. Your choice.
The last of the Robot theme. He's kinda happy.

This is 12 x 12 inches. It's made for my calendar entry for January for my Fiber Art Divas group. This looks exactly like the sketch and like what I pictured in my head.
Gotta run, but that contest I want to run is coming soon. Stay tuned!
