Home Sweet Home

It's so nice to be home but I did enjoy connecting with long-time friends and meeting new CQers also.  I had planned to work on my suffrage quilt there but somehow when I packed 3 of the blocks were left at home. I tried to be restrained during the fabric swaps but managed to get a piece of nice orange silk for my project for my granddaughter and this pile of brown ties...  I know it will be awhile before I do somber colors again but they were such beautiful silks.

I didn't get many pictures taken but Kerry has been doing a great job on her blog with the pictures she took....  Stop by and take a look...  It was a fantastic facility with lots of tables to work on... For me the only problem was the altitude again... 8000'. 

Morris has stuck to me like glue since I got home and eager to show me his new toy.   Other dogs have stuffed animals and squeaky toys...  Morris has become emotionally attached to a big old hammer which he carries around all over and occasionally chews on the handle.  When he is not carrying it around he keeps it on this pillow or hides it under my desk.

DH is leaving Monday for a job as an escort for a tour going to Croatia for 3 weeks so I will be busy helping him for the next few days...  Then I can stitch, stitch, stitch...

The ties are lovely. I'm finding I like a lot of colours now that I never used to. Dogs with personality quirks are so much fun even if they are a challenge at times. Nice to have you back. My morning blog reading was much reduced with all of you at the Retreat.

That picture of Morris is too funny. That hammer looks like its almost as big as he is.

Who knew the little guy was a carpenter? Although maybe he just wants to be Mom's helper. Good to have you back ....

The hammer story is so cute...he missed his mama! When your hubby departs, I'll be right over! (I wish)
