My camera is giving me problems so I am not able to post pictures of the projects that I completed this week while on vacation. It has been a very productive week.
I'll post pictures when I get the problem fixed.
But in the mean time, Helen at Hugs and Kisses is having a wonderful giveaway. Check it out at her blog. http://hugsnkisses.typepad.com/hugsfromhelen/
Good luck to everyone,

This is the project that is currently in my machine. It is my gift from my secret sister at quild last year. She made me a fall mantle cover. I love it and hope to have it finished early this morning.
Mom, Susan and I went to Longcreek Mills and Mary Jo's yesterday....we had a blast. Spent lots of money at both places. It is so much fun to travel with friends and fellow quilters.
Better get back to work so I can get something else finished and loaded into the machine.

I will have 9 straight days to quilt, quilt, quilt! Who could ask for more?
My husband is working on the addition to his garage during the week also. We decided instead of spending alot of money going somewhere for our 20th anniversary that we would stay home and do the things that we love.....of course quilting is top of the list for me.
I'll post pictures of my progress through my UFO's for the week. I hope to get many projects finished during those 9 days.
One of the days of my vacation some of my bee friends and I are going to J-Creek Fabrics in Waynesville, NC and on up to Mary Jo's fabrics in Gastonia, NC. An all-day shop-a-thon.
I have so many projects that I want to get quilted so I can enter them into our quilt show Oct 3-4, 2009. I'll post more about the show later. It is going to be great.

Thank you for helping us with research and providing mamograms to those in need.
Please help me by posting on your blog also so we can reach this goal. The lives of so many quilters have been affected by breast cancer. Thank you for your generosity and for passing this on to your blogs.
