I just can’t believe how much time has gone by. I’ve neglected my blog, not on purpose, but because there have been so many other things going on, I really haven’t had the time to do any sewing.
I’ll be leaving on Wednesday evening, right after work, to fly up to the Northwest. I’ll be landing in Portland, Oregon, and my sister will be picking me up and driving up to her house, about an hour north, for the night. We’ll then hit the road again on Thursday morning and driving up to Vancouver, BC, catching another plane, and flying up to Bella Coola, BC to spend a few days with my parents.
Here are a couple of pictures of the area that I took a few years ago when my husband and I went up to visit.
We’ll be there for four days, and then fly back down to Vancouver, BC. We’ll then drive to my niece’s house which is in northern Washington, just outside the Seattle area, and spend the night with her. Then back down to southern Washington to see my son. My husband will be joining me a couple of days later, and we will be spending a couple of days looking around at some property in the Vancouver and Washougal area. In all, I’ll be gone for about 10 days.
Unfortunately it is hard for me to get time off very often, so I have to try to get everything in on one visit. My husband and I are thinking about moving back up to southern Washington, close to the Portland, Oregon area. I lived in this area before moving here to Arizona 12 years ago, and as I mentioned above, I have family there. Taking care of the travel arrangements and researching properties and areas for us to visit is how I have been spending most of my time. As well as preparing things around the house for my 10 day absence.
So after this long explanation……here is a picture of the few 9-patch blocks I have finished for the sew along:
Seven more blocks closer. As soon as I return home from this trip, I will be doing a lot more sewing! My sewing table is just covered, and the only way out is to complete some of these projects! hehe!
And here is a sneak peak of something to come………shhhhh!!!!
Isn’t this a cute way to package fabric! I feel like I received a present in the mail!
And a little peak at what lies below the top.
Watch for more about this fabric! It’s all related to my 1 year anniversary of blogging with all of you wonderful and supportive friends. I’ll be posting more later. I promise!!
Take care, and thanks for stopping by, and listening!
