friday update

whew and double whew!  after 10 days of nonstop going, will now have a few days of quality time with my mom doing at home fun things.  the weather has been made-to-order perfect...have been to all the fave spots and eaten some fave new england foods...and visited some special quilty pals that made my vaca really, well special!  *** some time ago i saw a saying that really resonated with me...it goes like this:  'when you give what you have made with your hands, you give your heart.'  vic's little doll quilt really fits, and yesterday another friend gifted me with some homemade goodies--jar of jam and jar of honey from her own bees.


and being of like minds, we trekked to the ever-popular marden's for a bit more retail therapy....albeit no sale but still excellent value!


some pretty pinks for snapdragons, a neutral (with orange of course), a cute elf remnant and a margo krager shirting...a lucky find indeed!  it really is a fabric mecca, as long as you don't need a specific fabric...half the fun is in the search!  ***  the vacation days dwindle but still plenty of family time to spend....10 days of driving and sightseeing has left us weary but with wide smiles and loads of good memories for the days ahead.....to say i am blessed is a huge understatement....
