Summer Vacation, and a Patchability

We are planning a big trip this summer. In fact, we are leaving next Monday for 19, count 'em, 19 days!!! We're driving cross country to Riverside, California to visit our son, Jack, and to see all we can see while we are there. On the way out we are planning a 3 day stop in Flagstaff, AZ to see the Grand Canyon etc. While in California we are also going to go to Yosemite for a couple of days. I plan to blog every day about what we have done, so the family can keep up, but I don't expect all you hundreds and hundreds of folks who follow my blog to read it all, lol. I am excited!!!!

Went to walk up on the Parkway yesterday and stopped at a quilt shop in Burnsville, Needle Me This, on the way home. I saw this Patchability and just had to get it, and I finished it today. Instant gratification. And so cute.



I'll try to get in one more post before we leave. Did I tell you I'm so excited????

How excitiing for you. Many years ago (42) we took a 2 month trip to the West Coast: we had a 6 yo, 2.5yo, and 6 month old twins. We camped and visited relatives and friends. Had a wonderful time: came home really broke. Happy Vacation.

I love that shop.
You have reason to be excited. I am enjoyed reliving my trip through yours again.
You will love Yosemite. Don't forget to get some water from the spring in the park. It is delicious.
