Travel week!

Image
Hi All!!!  I have many many miles under my belt this past week! If you follow me on FB you know where I have been... if not here is a picture loaded tour:)



First we drove to Austin and flew to Atlanta and then to Ohio:) There were delays due to weather, perhaps a chance of loss of cabin pressure, no flight attendants, no ground crew... you know the story! We were to land at 10:30... well it was 3 AM. We did get there however!!!
Why Ohio? My daughter and hubby live there:) We stayed close the first day.... mostly Columbus and surrounding areas. This is Hayden Falls... named after my grand daughter:) ha ha!!!
Then to Schmidt's for the best ever German food and they also had a candy shop next door:) Also went to 2 quilt shops. 
Next day we headed to Canada:) This is Lake Erie on the way:)
Here we are on the US side of the falls. That's me and daughter:)
The US side is not as touristy as the Canadian side but it was good to see both!
Hubby and me on the US side.
Now on Canadian s…

Leaving on a jet plane....don't know when I'll be back again...

Hi All!
Yes going on a trip. Since hubby is going with me I can't tell you the details but next week there will be LOTS of travel pics!!! So you will have to keep guessing:)
Did get a little done this week:
Helen a non quilter made this t shirt quilt for a niece:) She did an awesome job! There were shirts from all over. Always love looking at them all. She made it so the ones that hang over the mattress are all going the right way.
Just a stipple with variegated thread. I trimmed and bound it for her also:)
It goes with the pillow shams I posted last week.
Cindy made this bright orange and blue quilt for a grand son I think.  School colors of the college he will be attending.

She just wanted wavy orange lines... think I got that:)
Always love her backs! Sometimes even better then the fronts:)
My July wool BOM is ready:)
This is Handsome our newest family member. He was a stray but now he's not:) Took him to vet to see if he was chipped... no:( So he is ours. He is fitting rig…

What a fun week!
