I'm Back!!!!!!


Back to the Surface of the Sun late Sunday afternoon and we were ready to go back when we read the thermometer in the car for the outside temp - 110 degrees. YUCK! Oh well, it was nice to have a cool break in the cool pines.
I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and sewing with friends. It was a great respite! Lots of sewing was done - I managed to finish two and a half projects.

Four Square by Cozy Quilt Designs and Fat Quarter Baskets (aka Picnic Baskets) by Thimbleberries. I had a really great time and enjoyed getting away but I sure enjoy being home now. I'm such a homebody! :-)
I have to sit and catch up on e-mails and blogs! I'm so addicted to blogging and my blogging friends - LOL.
I hope you've all missed me as much as I missed you. :-)
In Friendship!

Your tops are just beautiful. What a nice break it must have been. It got down right chilly here! Fall is coming, just hang on. Welcome back!!

I'm very glad you had a wonderful break from the heat. Your quilt tops look fantastic...you must have had the pedal to the floor all weekend. The baskets made me smile.

Glad you are back - although I'm with you . . . I'd rather be up in the cool pines *s* Your tops look great, but what about that 1/2 project you mentioned?

Carole said...

I was begining to wonder Missy if you had decided to stay longer at the retreat! Missed you! Your quilt tops are beautiful as always. You do such amazing work. It's been cool in my neck of the woods. Makes those hot flashes more tolerable! ;o) Keep kool!

WOWZER!!! Love your quilt tops. You were quite productive weren't you? Great job. What Kim meant to say is "are you giving those to Sharon?" I know that's what she meant to say.
And of course we missed you. Well Kim actually enjoyed all the attention while you were away. But the rest of us.....yes we missed you.
