Better late than never

I've had this photo on my desk top for ages--just forgot to post it here!!  This is my new ironing board in the usable position--it goes up flush on the wall, (in case I host square dancing or something similar in my studio!)  DH made this to my specs.  The blocks on it are the leftovers from Becca's mystery--they got turned into a small Christmas quilt (still in the top stage---a lot of mine are there---must get quilting so I'll have finishes!)

I'm back

and haven't gotten back into the swing of things yet.  Vacationing is hard work!!  The house boat on Rainy Lake was fabulous!  I got into Fargo after being up for 25 hours.  My sister and niece met me and we took my mother to lunch for her 80th birthday.  Then drove back to Bemidji, repacked, and drove to International Fall to spend 3 days on the houseboat.  So, of course, in the confusion, I forgot to repack my camera!!!  Sister dear is gonna send the ones she took.  Here is one of some of my family at a bar-b-q Kim had at her house.  My sister-in-law and 4 of her kids, my sis and her 3 and me.  We also took a couple of road trips and did some antiquing and quilt shop hopping!  Will take a photo of the best find later to share.

My bags are packed

I'm ready to go...well, almost!  I will be flying out tomorrow night to be with my twisted sister for 2 weeks.  We will be on a houseboat for the first 5 days I'm there, doing nothing but sunning, yakking and eating!    YES!!!  It is hot out there, complete with sun.  I can do sun and hot.  Can't really complain tho...we have had some lovely weather, but now it is raining.  I will check in while gone, but infrequently.Hope you all have as much fun as I'm planning on!
