No, I'm not planning on being quiet, it's against my nature.  But, this blog will be quiet for awhile,  I'm leaving for vacation soon, and I have "stuff" to do to get ready.  You know the "stuff" that doesn't get done when you're quilting or surfing the blogs.

Yesterday I spent hours, way too many, surfing the Sew Mama Sew Give Away offerings.  Such fun, such potential.  I'm pretty lucky, and this is a great way to add to my stash, if I'm lucky enough to win.

I have a lot of small projects to catch up with around the house, before I leave.  I also have received a Summons for Jury Service, for next week.  I'm not planning on starting any sewing/quilting projects before I leave.  All those projects rolling around in my head will be ready to go, when I get back mid-June.

Gone Fishin' from MARILYN'S MAZE

No, I'm not going fishing, I stole the photo from my friend Marilyn.  June 3rd, I'm going to NYC, for a bit of sightseeing and to attend Book Expo America.  It's a convention for booksellers.  Bob describes it as a "candy store for readers".  He hasn't been up to joining my the last couple of years, but on the 9th he's flying in so we and board a cruise ship and sail to Bermuda.  It's going to be a great couple of weeks.

Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson! fame, is going to be doing a signing at the BEA.  So, two of my worlds, books and quilting, will intersect.  I'm hoping to come home with a signed copy of her new book, Modern Patchwork.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Have a safe, and wonderful, trip to both NYC and Bermuda (my favorite island!!!)

  2. I will be sad that this is going to be your quiet time but I am glad for you that you get to be in NYC and then on to Bermuda. Have a great trip and I can not wait to see the pics. Take one of the colorful houses with white roofs for me. Enjoy your time away.

  5. Have a fun trip. "See" you soon.

  6. Sounds like a perfect combination to me - books/authors and a cruise. Enjoy:)
