- The condo was reserved over a year ago with a non-refundable deposit.
- It has a kitchen so she can cook her own meals. She'd have to buy groceries here anyway.
- It's directly on the beach and Momcat's never been to Virginia Beach.
- She's going to spend two days with her parents on the way down.
- She's opting to leave vacation two days early in order to work a quilt show in Ohio Amish country with her boss from the quilt shop.
Cross-stitch projects, knitting schemes, and quilting UFOs are making the trip too.
"Springtime Tulips" is the first UFO to win a spot on the Virginia Vacation Express.
This quilt is SEW close to being done! It calls for two borders. The first border is 2-1/2" and matches the background color.
The outside border will be pieced from all the 30s prints used within the body of the quilt.
This pattern is from the book Surprisingly Simple Quilts and was much easier to make than it looks. Isn't it a perfect project to keep Momcat busy over spring break?
Another take-along will be the "Tuffets" pattern for pincushions made from charm squares and The Poky Little Puppy fabric from Quilting Treasures made up in a Hyde Park design.
I'll miss Momcat while she's gone. Manchild Philip will be here taking care of Maggie, Butch, Sundance and me. Logan and Trouble have gone to live with CatDaddy. The beans miss them, but I don't. More lap time for me. Mmmmwwwwhahahahaha.
