Home again . . .

We are home and it is all good!

"Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in." Robert Frost

Billings was fun - did a little shopping, lots of looking around and had a great salad lunch at a place where you go through a line and they build it as you select things. I woke up yesterday morning with a quilt in my mind - in color. It was a total shock as I have heard others say they do that, but have never done it. So I bought the fabric that I saw in the quilt and it was a good way to really enjoy the three quilt shop stops. I decided that quilt shops need a design area that has natural lighting to lay out fabrics and get a good color check as I was "a woman on a mission" for specific colors from my mind and they had to be just the right ones. I have never been sure I even dreamed in color so now I know that as well.

I also went to one of the coffee suppliers (Mountain Mudd) and bought a tub of sugar free white chocolate powder for my afternoon coffee. I like coffee black in the morning, but this stuff is great for in the afternoon. It is the best I have found and it is the only place I can find it. Using a tablespoon at a time, this will last me for well over a year, but it is worth every sip.

I am off to Missoula today to enjoy some time with Mom and Dad. More on that later.

I can't wait to see what you do with the fabric. Such lucious colors. Is one of them a satin?

Have an enjoyable visit with your Mom and Dad!

I am catching up today - so have been reading a few days' worth! Love the fabrics - and I, too, can't wait to see the result! That IQ is fantastic! And the family reunion must have really been fun. I love them!
