Vacation!

I start my week vacation tomorrow morning. Tomorrow I'm moving most everything out of the sewing room in preparation for the Wednesday trip to Ikea. So tonight I'm madly sewing Crumb Chaos blocks trying to finish these before I must pack them up for a few days. With this last round a few are finished, but most need either one or two more strips. Thought you'd get a kick out of seeing this stack on the cutting table waiting for pressing. It's probably the last picture I'll take of this gerryrigged cutting table. The next photos will be of the new stuff moving in. Stay tuned - I'll post pictures of my progress.

*************
Gratitudes:
1. Paid vacation days
2. A great weekend read
3. A camping trip with all the kids coming up soon
4. A few new quilting books
5. Flavored coffee creamers

OMG! That is quite a pile of blocks! Did I read correctly in your previous post that you have actually exhausted your crumb size scraps? Did you think that would ever be possible? I read in your gratitudes that you are grateful for flavored coffee creamers. Do you have a favorite? We drink the French Vanilla in this house. We used to use Amoretto but we can no longer buy that in Canada--French Vanilla was a second favorite.

Wow -- I think you should get more than one or two quilts out of that pile. Great work and I can't wait to see your new room!

Goodness gracious Patti! Now that pile of pressing-in-waiting would be enough to put me off!

Enjoy your vacation time :)

Ooooh, IKEA--love that place. We went to one in Phoenix and I came home mad that we didn't have one in the KC area LOL!!! Your pile is impressive--can't wait to see what it turns into. Enjoy your days off!

Enjoy, enjoy your vacation! I'll bet you're going to have so much fun rearranging your sewing room with new stuff. Are you giddy with excitement?
I can't wait to see it all. Don't forget to rest and relax!

Make sure to check out my blog so you can see the great FQ boxes that I got at IKEA a couple of weeks ago. I'm going back this week to get a couple more.

Good luck wrestling all those wonderful scraps!!!

I think I am almost as excited about this as you! I've always been inspired by your quilting room and how much you get out of a small space. Can't wait!

Holly said...

Aren't you camping out in line at IKEA? I think of you everytime it comes on the news :)

This is going to be so much fun...

Hi, Patti, have fun getting the IKEA furniture!

Nan said...

My goodness, Patti! I've been checking your blog every so often to see if you've posted anything new, and all of a sudden, you've been posting like a woman possessed! I'm not complaining - I think it's wonderful!
I can't wait to see your new and "improved" sewing room! How exciting for you, and for us, since we get to see it!
And, as usual, you amaze me with how much sewing you get done! You are a Wonder Woman!!
