Just returned home from a much needed vacation. Our family vacation couldn’t have come at a better time. It was a wonderful, relaxing time with the family. More often than not, I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation because I’m so exhausted when I get home. Do you know what I mean? Not this time. I made sure to relax and let my body do some much needed healing.
With views like this every morning, you can’t help but feel relaxed. I even worked on some hand projects that I never would have had time to work on at home. I will post about our vacation later because of course I hit some quilt shops while gone too. 🙂 I have so much to catch up on, but first I want to share the rest of Judy’s quilt. Naturally, I forgot to take a pre-quilt photo. I’ll have to remember next time because I’m actually going to be quilting this quilt again, but for a different client.
Sorry these photos are upside down. Oops. You get the idea.
I always love to see how pretty the quilting looks on the back too. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting. The majority of the thread was a pretty yellow from So Fine, but there is a little Isacord mixed in too. My two favorite threads!! I really had a lot of fun with quilting this. It makes me smile even more now because Judy was so happy with it.
Tonight we have 5th Grade orientation for the girls. Hard to believe the girls are going into 5th Grade! I think they are more ready than I am for them to go back to school. I took them school shopping right before we went on vacation. Trust me, I earned every second of that vacation based on that alone.
Thanks again everyone for all the well wishes. I think they worked!
