Busy day and fun in the mail!

Tomorrow is my first day back at school, so I have felt a lot of pressure the past few weeks to get all the things finished that I haven't done yet this summer. Of course, it never completely happens, but I have been working to get everything ready for my fall quilt class schedule at least.

 I did get some of my models hung today. They had taken down the hangers during a remodel, so they had to be rehung....and it took longer than usual.  I sewed the binding on the St. Marks quilt before I hung it...wish I would've taken my camera for a pic, but didn't. I will get a decent pic of that quilt...I will...I will....

On my way home I stopped and got ink so I ran the rest of the lists when I got home. I had a nice little surprise in my mailbox too, 2 new books! I love making the letters and ordered Tonya's book so I would have the BIBLE of letter piecing.  Plus I am dying to try this kaleidoscope quilt in the newest Ricky Tims book. Looks like fun!

Penny helped me figure out how to open my Works files in Word yesterday, so a big THANK YOU went out to her. I was doing the happy dance....did you feel the earth move?

Tomorrow I get to begin the process of unpacking all those boxes (330 or so) ...that I packed up in May. You might remember my post about that. To be honest, I'm not really looking forward to it, but it has to be done. I packed in order, and marked the boxes as I went, so once I get things arranged, it should go pretty fast. I hope! It took 2 weeks to pack it, how long do you think it will take to unpack it?

I love books too and those two look good. I wish you luck in all that unpacking...not one of my favorite things to do at all.

Smiles,

Have fun dreaming of new quilts! (I have "Word Play Quilts" on my wish list.) Too bad school starts tomorrow and you can't spend the day looking at your new books. ;-)

Oh, I think you'll LOVE Tonya's book! Back to school already?? Wow, it doesn't seem like it's time yet.

Good luck on the unpacking. I've been here 4 years, and I still have a few boxes in the garage waiting to be unpacked. *groan* Packing is bad enough, unpacking is just painful. I hope you can power through it quickly!
