Am I...

I feel like I've been living in a cave. Just me and my sewing machine. Well, the washer and dryer are keeping me company, too.
I MISS BLOGGING. I miss posting and I really miss hopping from blog to blog checking in on what everyone's doing. I haven't been able to read a single blog in over a week. I don't even know what Pam's been saying!
I really, really, really want to thank all of you who leave comments. It makes me feel a little less like a cave dweller...knowing that you all are out there!
Quilt Market prep is taking all of my time. As in 14 hours a day. In 2 weeks it'll all be over and I'm not even close to being ready.

But I really do feel lucky. Pam brought over friendship bread starter awhile back...that she received via Monica. That's what was in the bag up there. And yes, it was put on my cutting table--the only place where I'd be sure to see it.

Only thing is, I was afraid that I'd totally neglect that bag of goo and it would explode all over my kitchen if I left it alone too long. Not that anyone in my house would notice batter streaming down the walls. Except perhaps the dogs.

So I have to admit I gave the starter to my dad...who has a bit more time for that sort of thing. And I learned this morning that the bread was in the oven. With MORE CINNAMON. He seemed a bit miffed at what the recipe called for. And then he tells me that one of the loaves is mine. Can't wait to go collect it!

So that's a lucky thing. Sweet, cinnamony bread that has come from the kitchens of 3 special people!

Boxes of stuff are on their way to Houston...Quilter Extraordinaire Diana has the last of the quilts...Pam will be helping out more tomorrow...all lucky stuff.

And it seems the least I can do is show a couple more sneak peeks...this guy now has eyes and legs...

Remember the pink and aqua Christmas quilt? Well, here's part of it. Complete with vintage crochet trim I picked up while antiquing with Pam awhile back.

I promise a super-cool sneak peek really soon...before everything's on its way to Houston.
So yeah, I'd have to say I'm lucky...but I sure miss you all!

I LOVE your rooster and will imagine him with eyes and legs. I've missed you - we all have, and know your busy with getting ready for market. But we still miss you.

I got such a kick out of seeing that Lucky bag! Pam must have a bag stash that dates back to prehistoric times.

Lucky you for your dad's baking talents! Enjoy that bread! There's a little bit of Montana in the starter as well.

I love the chicken! So cute! I am one of those people with a kitchen chicken collection, so... And the pink and aqua Christmas quilt is awesome. I keep hunting for pretty vintage christmas ornaments in those colors but haven't gotten lucky yet. ~A :-)

I love the rooster and don't envy you all that hard work to prepare for the quilt market. But hopefully it will all pay off big time for you and when it's all over perhaps you'll have a little more time to relax.
