I'm Going To Need A Vacation...

... to recover from this weekend, as might be evidenced by the fact that I'm typing this blog post on my iPhone while lying on the couch trying to work up the energy to go upstairs to bed.

Spent the day at the annual Mid Appalachian Quilters Seminar where I took a paper piecing class with Merry May. Mariner's Compass ... 32 point no less. (Photo tomorrow).

Saturday morning we're heading out at 7:30 am (groan) to Charles Town, West Virginia to a flea market. And I need to squeeze in a stop at the nursery and a visit to the Hallmark Ornament Premier.

Then it's back to MAQ Sunday for an all-day class on using Electric Quilt.

I hope to manage a bit of sewing tomorrow night. There's a new Aiming For Accuracy block posted that I need to jump on.

If you've got any extra time or energy to spare, and could channel it my way, it would be greatly appreciated!

And because we can't have a blog post without a photo, here's what I found in my mailbox when I got home this evening:


  1. Hi Susan. Paper Piecing and EQ. What fun. Saw your blog posted on Love Entwined.


  2. I can see why you need a vacation, Susan. After doing such activities, a break from things should be able to refresh both your mind and body. What kind of vacation do you prefer? The warm and summer feeling of the beach, or a retreat to the coldness of the mountains?
