Home Sweet Home

We got home last night after being away for almost 2 weeks.  We had such a wonderful trip spending time with family.   And  it ended with this :) I have been looking forward to it since March when we got the tickets and it didn't disappoint.  It was incredible!!!  The fact that we got to go with our good friends from IN (Who now live in Salt Lake) was the icing on the cake!!

I was so excited to run down to my sewing room this morning and see all the pretty fabric I have laid out for my  "on deck" projects.  I can't wait to get in here (some time today) and get to some sewing.  I have missed this little space like crazy!!

And I even brought something home to add to the sewing room.  My mom and sister love to garage sale so we joined them on Saturday morning.  And when I found 6 baby size batting pieces for $1.00 (not a $1.00 each, a $1.00 total) I was pretty excited!!!  And my sister laughing at me because I got so excited over batting made it all the more fun!

So in order to get down to my sewing room first I have to unpack, luckily we already did the laundry at my Mom's so this should go pretty quick.  Then there are some finances, and a bit of tidying around the house.  And I should do some school supply shopping as I got the lists in the mail while we were gone and some groceries as we have no milk, bread, or eggs.

Lastly, the garden needs to be weeded.  Hoolay Smokes!!!!  Can you believe this.  The power went out while we were gone and reset the sprinkler system so this garden has been watered plenty and it sure grew plenty.    Sadly, a good portion of that green is weeds and not plants.  But we do have vegetation growing in there so we need to pull out.  I think this one might be a family project :)

So I am off to get going on my list of things to do so that I can get to my little sewing space during nap time :)  See ya tomorrow for Week 4 of the Tetris Quilt-A-Long or Tetris Tuesday, as so many of you have started calling it.  I love it!!!
Pin It!


  1. So glad you had a fun trip! We're going to Wicked next week and I'm so excited!

  2. I get soooo cranky when I am not able to quilt or even touch fabric!! Wicked was an amazing musical, wasn't it!?!?!? I think I could see it again in a heartbeat!

  3. Whoa! Them's a lotta green! Definitely a family project :o) Glad to hear you had fun - I know a few people who have gone to Wicked and I think I may have to wait a while longer, oh well - I'll just go sew! I totally get how you feel about your sewing room, I walk by it every day and when I don't get some time in there I get all itchy.

  4. What an awesome show to see! When my Mother took me to New York she surprised me by taking me to see it!
    Loving your sewing room it looks so neat and organised. What a great deal on the batting!
    Oh gosh the poor garden! I hope you get it all sorted out. =D

  5. Welcome home, good luck with battling that garden!

  6. What a great sewing room. I would love to have it. At present I use the dining table but maybe when one of the children leave home......Good luck with getting your garden back under control.

  7. Bargain!! I wouldn't even know where to start in the garden, that's the hubbies job!! Have fun!

  8. Welcome home! Hope you got to do some sewing in your beautiful sewing center. Omg with the garden!!! Lol


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
