Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Driving And More Driving

Finished tonight at Maine Quilts. It went well, but I'm 'dead beat and plum tuckered out,' as the Brick would say. Have more than fifteen hours of driving to get to Michigan, then another twenty hours of driving (including a quick stop in Kansas City for The Mama to see her sister-in-law, Aunt Ruth) before I get back to Colorado...and home. 

    Home -- wow, I haven't been there since May 24! Does it still exist? Is it really still there? 

Here are photos of some of the wonderful blocks my Maine-r students kicked out this week. Since we were studying fabrics (and designs) Colonial Americans used, many of these include similar fabrics, including toiles and 'diapered' backgrounds. Nice!

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to pack up the "cah" and get going. Meanwhile:

Have a good week.
