Taking the show on the road

Tomorrow morning Mark and I leave for our management week at Lakeview Cottages. Thinking optimistically that I will actually have some time to relax after management duties are done, I have prepared this little travel box, purchased on sale at Borders yesterday:

I put two little Mary Engelbriet magnets in the lid just in case I need pins for something. Probably not. But it never hurts to be prepared. And the magnets are too cute.

Lots of fabric squares cut and ready to go, with no repeats (so far...):

My organizer, sadly which is still looking quite empty:

And some of my favorites, which I get out occasionally just to sigh over:

And in case you are wondering, the car will be full because I'm also taking along all my friends, old and new (even the loudmouth, although I'm bringing along a sibling who seems a little more subdued):

Here's hoping no fights break out in the car on the drive up, and that we will all come home happy, rested and well bonded with each other in our respect friendship groups!


  1. You are just too cute!

    (And organized in the same sweet/crazy-particular way as me... No wonder I like you! :-)

  2. Those fav's are truly sighworthy!

    Hope you get lots of time to relax and play with your friends!

    Have a great week!

  3. I just found your blog through Crazymomquilts. You make such lovely quilts!

  4. I wanna go on your retreat if I can have adorable organized fabric too!!

  5. have fun! that little case is so cute--inside and out!

  6. ooops! that comment was from me, randi.

  7. Nice fabrics, nice case, nice organization and nice place you're going to!!

  8. You are doing so well with your hexies!

  9. That little case is just adorable. I need one of those! And those hexies look great.

  10. Your little lunch box makes the perfect travel sewing case. Seems like some more hex's will get made...if no fights break out!


Go ahead--be chatty and leave a comment:
