When you have to have it

LinkBack in the fall, after Quilt Market, I saw a photo on the internet
(sorry I cannot remember where) of a quilt made from a new
line of fabrics. I printed out the photo and thought I would run
across the new line somewhere soon. Yep, I found it at my LQS
but they didn't have the whole line. It is by Lakehouse and I
searched some of the other quilt shops in my area and found
some more. I don't know if this is the whole line but this is
what I bought. There is one more piece coming (the large blue
and green stripe) that I will use for the binding. The large
hydrangea print will be the backing and the rest (1/2 yards)
will be a sort of square in a square. You can see more of this
at Holly's blog.

Isn't it just beautiful?!!!!
When you gotta have it, you gotta have it!!!!

FOUR more days until retreat. I was under the weather this
weekend with a terrible cold and sore throat so I didn't get alot
done as far as packing goes. I did the fun stuff like cutting
and organizing. But, I want to get the house vaccumed and
dusted, the laundry done and some food cooked for my poor
lonely husband, so I saved that for this week when I
hopefully feel better. All this in between working too!

I have to remember to tell our kids to visit him this weekend.
I know the boys will be over to help finish the roof on the shed.
Hope the weather holds. I think secretly he likes the little
break without me around.

Until next time...
