I'm BAAAACK!

To say this has been an adventure would be putting it mildly! I have already told everyone at work if I EVER say I want to move again, PLEASE push me out the 5th floor window. It would be more humane and much less painful.....We finally got the old house cleaned and completely empty. I can't believe we got 5 people in that space! I am still in purge mode though. We moved an awful lot of stuff that I think I can actually do without, so the donation box is getting really full. The only thing left is to get the rose bush from the side of the yard, then we are officially done with that house....It still feels weird after 11 years. As a matter of fact, I had went to the grocery store with one of my sons, then proceeded to pull into our old driveway and shut the car off. My son finally said "Um, Mom, we moved...." Hey, if you are going to mess up, do it in front of your kids.....
I will post a longer entry tomorrow. I just wanted to check in and let everyone know I survived....

Glad you're still alive...When do I get to see? ANd hey, we've all been there...After you move you drive to the old place at least once...Especially if you're not really paying attention to where you are driving...That whole divided conscientiousness thing...

Hi, Rhonda. Congrats on your move. You asked about the fabric in my Cotton Candy Sue quilt. You know, I probably did get most of that fabric from the Wichita area, seeing as how I live under a rock and don't get out much. :) Gramma's Calico Cupboard on Hydraulic has a bunch of 30's repros. You might call Picket Fence Quilt Company on West street, too, to see if they have any. It's been so long now, that I just can't recall where they all came from.

Thanks for looking at my Sue's! And leaving a comment.

Thanks Jen!
I love the Calico Cupboard. The owner has an awesome featherweight--I have two and am quite in love with the little machine. She does seem to have the best selection of reproduction prints in Wichita.She has a couple bolts that contain 4 different prints per yard!

Your quilt is really one of the most stunning I've seen!
