I Got Nothing.................

zip, zero, zilch

I think I burned out stitching two Mirabilia's back to back like that. I did a little stitch for a gift - can't show you a pic as I made it twice and the second one hasn't been sent yet. I made another little gift but it hasn't been received yet.

Been packing, sorting and cleaning. We are ready to head home to Canada. We will leave here Saturday, travel to Texas and spend a week with my widowed sister and her children.

There is one special thing that I am really looking forward to.  I have made arrangements to meet Missy Ann at a local needlework shop near where my sister lives. If we like each other (LOL) we will visit a quilt shop and have a little lunch. Missy and I have emailed, facebooked and phone chatted many times over the past year and I am looking forward to meeting her.

From there, we will wander our way home. I have packed my stitching in the car - I have one more Mirabilia RR to stitch and a friends's RR to stitch a house on. I also have a good book and the binding to handsew on my quilt. That should help with the 2700 mile trip home!

Iwill do my best to stay in touch as I travel. I know my blog reading will get behind again but I will do my best.

Take care everyone and see you on the road.

Have a safe and relaxing trip Kathy!

Missy Ann said...

You have a safe drive & I can't wait to meet you too.

Don't worry about taking a break on those MiraRRs. You turned those two around so fast, and it's weeks until the next mailing.

The trip sounds like it is going to be great fun. Enjoy meeting up with Missy Ann! I can understand having a little burn out after two Mirabilia's back to back. Your stitching zenergy will return quickly I am sure.

Hugs from Holland ~

Take care too and wish you a very safe trip!!

I haven't much stitched lately either, but since I don't have my toothache anymore I'm back to stitching and guess what :) I finished my "Mickey Salutes America" and started the kit you sent me :) It's a joy to stitch it :) and when I'm stitching on it, you are in my mind.

Hugs,
Wendy
