Of all the weird things!

I woke up this morning and decided my blog needs a facelift. Where did that idea come from? Crept in there from some far corner of my brain.

And today, of all days, to add this task to my To Do List! I need to pack because I'm making the trek to Phoenix for a few days of Quilt Show Loveliness at the AQS Quilt Week Phoenix.  I'm taking longarm quilting classes from Lisa Sipes and Judi Madsen, and will get to spend some fun time with my husband's aunt - golf, cocktails, maybe take in the Dale Chihuly glass exhibit at the Botanical Gardens. Who knows what - just relax and enjoy the moments.

Relax, Barb. Just relax. This blog facelift will definitely wait. I'd better pack. My plane leaves in a few hours. YES!!!

Oh - I finished binding my first quilt for Scrap-A-Palooza! Even snuggled in it last night. Fun, fun, fun! And this is one of my February goals for A Lovely Year of Finishes. Right on target.

I apologize here - cannot figure out how to get the photos turned correctly. But you'll get the idea!

Remember to quilt with a smile!
