Reluctant vacation

Confession time!!!
We leave tomorrow for an Alaskan cruise with thirty of
our friends from our church. And I don't want to go. If
I didn't love my husband so much, (he really wants to go)
believe me I'd be at the beach with all my kids (which is
where we usually go the third week in July and where all
my cousins and extended family will be next week).

But I'm going and I have the patch from my doctor and
lots of prayers from my family and friends to send me off.

I will have fun...I will have fun...I will have fun...

I won't be posting again until next Sunday or Monday
but I am leaving you with a photo of my favorite quilt.
It is the Conway Album Quilt by Irma Gail Hatcher. I
saw it in person at the AQS Museum in Paducah and it
actually made me cry. No kidding. I sat staring at it for
30 minutes.

Until next time...

I would gladly take your place on that cruise but we might have some explaining to do with hubby. I hope you can enjoy your time away. I agree with you on the quilt, it is breathtakingly beautiful.

That quilt - yes, it took my breath away!

You will be glad you took the trip - when you get back. 8-)
