got these lovelies in the mail the other day.....aren't they gorgeous! this is half of the Lady of the Lake Block Swap; the other half will come in January i believe...so the UFO list grows.... no sewing today yet...grocery shopping and a half-day trip to the clipper merchant tea room with mom for some tea, soup and scones....so very good! and the foliage is definitely peak in my surrounds...with the sun shining on the leaves, it is magical! *** 2 weeks now to retreat; next week at this time i'll be getting out the suitcase and putting things together. as anxious as i am to start my quilty vacation, i know it will be over way too soon. that's how it goes usually....but i know i'll enjoy every moment.
