My bags are packed - well at least in my head!

I'm off tomorrow morning to sew, sew, sew with Laura and friends! Sossy and Linda will be there too! It has been a few months since I"ve seen Laura so I can't wait to see her - we have so much to catch up on!

I still have all my packing to do, but I know what I want to take. All except some border fabric I need to fix a project I made last year and pushed off because I had to do a ton of ripping (I spent 2 hours last night doing that) and then fix it. And can you believe it - I can't find the fabric!

I did get the binding sewn down on my Men at work and washed it so it is all soft and wrinkly. So that is all I have for pics today - but I"ll have lots when I get back!

I LOVE your Men at Work!!!

You girls are going to have the best time!!! You're all so lucky!

And that fabric? Maybe that's how fabric stashing grow: Our fabric just gets up and moves onto the next quilter-in-waiting. ;-) Nah...it'll show up after you buy a replacement. ;-)

Travel safely!

Is there anything better than a new quilt, soft and wrinkly, fresh from the dryer?
