Absolutely Positively Seriously, and I'm Not Even Kidding

 . . . this is my last blog post before I leave on my trip.

When the mail came yesterday there was so much fun stuff that I was bursting to tell you.  You wouldn't want me going off on an airplane at risk of bursting would you?

Two more blocks for the We Bee Learning block bee came.  This one is from Trina:


Cute fabrics.  Thank you, Trina!  And this one is from Jackie:


I asked for the blocks to have some sort of theme, even if the theme was "scrappy".  Jackie's theme is "a Florida sunset".  Love that.  Thank you, Jackie!

Then, it was so exciting to receive this!  A little bit ago, I blogged that one of my images had been selected to be included in the 2013 calendar for the Downtown Portland Neighborhood Association.  (You can see the original post right here.)  Well, the calendar is out, and I have a copy!  So totally cool!  I just happen to be Miss March in 2013.


The other images for the calendar are all so pretty, I find myself in very good company.  And since this is one of my first images after becoming a serious hobbyist (is that an oxymoron?), it's especially fun to see it in print.

So that's really it.  The next post you see from me will be from somewhere else.  And I really cannot procrastinate on packing any more.

Bye, bye George and Gracie.  Eat your veggies and no scratching.


Bye, bye sewing machine.


Bye, bye sewing room.  (Someone really should tidy you up a bit.)


Bye, bye doll quilters.  Bye, bye blogging buddies.  Love ya' long time.

We will take good care of Gracie and George - I would tidy up if closer - and I will wave from the end of Quilt Lane as you fly overhead. Pleasant journey!

Congratulations! It's great to be a calender girl and get to keep your clothes on. Miss March has such a lovely ring to it.
