It's Great to be Home

We had a wonderful, wonderful time on our trip...we left Wednesday morning last week and returned home on Monday...but it is always so good to get home. We were in Pennsylvania for Andy's 35th college reunion and we went to his home town and spent 2 days with his brothers. We couldn't have had a better time. I don't think I've laughed that hard and that much in a very long time...nothing better that good laughter with good friends and family. The weather was spectacular...the sky could not have been bluer and not a cloud in the sky. The leaves were so pretty...I love fall. I returned to the shop on Tuesday, all was well...and then I was off today...trying to catch up. Laundry, groceries and I did get to sew a bit. I finished an October goal...I finished the top for our shop event this weekend. It sure isn't my best piecing, but it's done...and it's not an heirloom. I also got lots of my Jo Morton swap blocks done. I looked at my goals again and realized I was probably a bit too lofty since I was gone 6 days this past week and then I'll be gone at the end of the month for 5 days to attend Quilt Market in Houston. Guess I'll do the best I can and re-evaluate...I'll move some to November. I guess I need to just stay home!

Sounds like a fun trip. I'm getting the idea that all of us quilters really love fall and the colors that go along with it *s*

Welcome home! I can imagine all the fun you had. ;-) Relax your goals a little - be kind to yourself.

Don't you just love the Northeast in the fall??? I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
You had a wonderful trip, don't stress about the goals. They'll still be there next month. Finish the witch for Halloween, even though you'll be at Market, you lucky thing, you. ;)
