Good To Be Home

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

After a long flight from JFK to PDX, we arrived home around mid-night. We fell into bed and got a good west coast sleep in plus some napping on the plane. I need to get back to this time zone because I am heading to Tacoma on the train tomorrow. My STASH friends are going to the APWQ quilt show and will be there for two nights, coming home on Saturday afternoon.

Today, I sorted mail, paid bills, did laundry and shopped for food. Scooter came home. He seems exhausted! I am sure he had a great time running with all the big dogs at the canine resort.

I found a package from Aurifil threads. I played a little game on Face Book and received some free thread. Aren’t those colors gorgeous. I want to make a quilt to go with the thread.

This is the Cherrywood fabric that I bought at City Quilter in Chelsea. I think those blues will work nicely with my indigo fabrics. I also needed to fill in some nice dark colors. These will be fun to discharge, too.

I was also excited to get my new Sketchbook Project T-shirt.

I am particularly excited that the sketchbooks are coming to Portland next year.

I will be taking my camera and laptop to Tacoma and hope to get in some blogging. I am looking forward to catching up with some blogger friends, too.
