glimpses into my vacation, or parts of the story, or how to save a life

First off, there were to be no elaborate meals during vacation, so we started off with grilled cheese and pickles,



and I stitched on this, which is Willow House from Blackbird Designs,



and then this got pulled out when I was organizing the stash...my first patchwork quilt that i never finished the binding on, so I was working on that too....



and then we sorta hit a "bump" in the road, a "miscommunication" of sorts on the part of certain medical professionals and are ending the week with these little "life savers":




Nothing like finding out how close to a MAJOR F up (and by F up, I mean, serious consequences) for a certain cupcake's husband either having A) a major stroke or B) heart failure and possibly dying...nothing ahem, trivial to send your vacation to a grinding halt.

It's all good. I am staying close by...had plans for the quilt store with the sale and picking up the newest Loose Feathers at the not so local stitch store...and some other things, but nope. Not budging one inch. Silly girl, tricks are for kids.

Your husband can't go wrong with you by his side!

Andrea, all of your projects are always so beautiful, and your Willow House and quilt are no exception.

Even your grilled cheese sandwiches look perfect!

Take care,
Nancy

Hmmmm, grilled cheese and pickles sounds good to me.

Even though you are staying close to home, it sounds like you've got enough to keep you busy. Thank God Hubby has you by his side.
