Embarking on a Journey

"The longest journey a man must take is the
 eighteen inches from his head to his heart."

    My bags are packed, new projects are put together and I am ready to set off on a journey. Tomorrow we leave for a two week much needed vacation. Every year we go with another couple who has a condo in Bellingham, Washington. It is about a 1,100 mile trip so I always have a car ride project to keep me busy. Since I seem to be the only morning person in the group I always wake to a quiet house and first do my devotion and then my stitching. I have 3 LHN projects to work on. There are no needlework shops in the area but there is a nice bead shop that has fun charms. I hope they are still there, many times shops close up from one year to the next.

    I love holidays, do you? I decorate the house for every occasion. When my husband and I were dating he said "I think this family celebrates every holiday including groundhog day". Well ever since I make sure he gets a groundhog gift. I hoped to have two new pillows made to place on the couch for my Memorial Day to 4th of July decorations. With all the packing I did manage to buy the matching fabric but will have to sew them up when I get home.

                              Liberty Lane will have the blue front and this fun star pattern on the back.
 

I love the backing material for Bless our Home, the material says Home Sweet American Home.


    I will be taking my small notebook computer and will try and keep up with blogland. Being that I am hooked I don't want to go through ugly withdrawals. I hope to come home with several new finishes. I have to close saying I joined my first exchange. I am so excited, can't wait to see who I am stitching for. Maybe it's you!

Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa
