All my bags are packed...

... I'm ready to go. Just sing along with me here, unless you are unfamiliar with the song "Leaving on a Jet Plane."

I am only going to be gone 7 days, but there are so many things people want me to take to the new baby or the new Mom--and there are a few things I wanted to take to them, too. : )

Maybe I can put my carry-on inside my checked bag on the way home (I hope).








There are a couple of hand-stitching projects tucked into those bags. Nothing new, but some that I will enjoy working on when I have sitting time.





Making Houses From Scraps was a gift project from my friend Annie M. when I was flying to visit my daughter a couple of years ago. There were 12 houses in the kit she sent and I got a few of them finished on that trip and then I worked on them at home until I got enough of them completed to make this little quilt which I call "Annie's Neighborhood."

 It currently hangs in my living room and greets you as you walk in the door.  I have a different layout planned for the other house blocks. I hope it will work out.

This is an old photo of the other project I packed. I have made a little progress on it, but it is packed away and I can't get a photo of it.
Maybe I will have something more to show when I get home.

I leave for the airport in less than an hour, but I wanted to let you know that Taryn (of Repro Quilt Lover blog) won my giveaway. Congrats to Taryn, and if you aren't familiar with her blog, check it out. I love her style.

I probably won't keep up with blogs much while I am away, but I'll catch you in a week.

Until then,
Janet O.

  15. Your little hexies look great. I haven't been working on mine for a while but they are going with me when we go to Montana for a week at the end of the month. I love it because I can work on them while the car is moving. Have a fun trip.
