Who's to blame.....


My friend Louise would say it was my fault when we were out on the prowel and she bought fabric! Well I read Gretchen's blog, or was it her response to mine. At any rate she was making plans for a road trip to Sweet Home. Sounds good to me. I decided this morning that today was the day for a haircut as well. first, I'll go to Sweet Home and then swing back and get my hair cut. Knowing full well that after a trip I would probably not do my hair. So I went to the hair place first. Mission accomplished the hair has been cut. I'm good to go!!! On to Conyers.........
I won...I got there first. Becky soon arrived. She had emailed this AM but I was already out of the house. So....mini sisters group on the road. We had a good time. It is so much fun to bounce ideas off of others. I was bad and spent too much money but I got some really pretty fabric and a book. Add this on to the pile of works in progress.
Becky is doing the mystery quilt "orange crush". I came home and signed on too. I have to go shopping in my sewing room this afternoon and see if I can pull a few fabrics together. I will have to depend on Becky to tell me when the next part is due because I am not sure I am signed in.
Back to Sweet Home...we missed Melisa. Melisa WHEN are you going to get ugly fabric. The store is jammed with some gorgeous stuff. I want it all!!
On the way home, I stopped at Kroger and bought some green tea as Gretchen had reccommended. I had no idea there were so many types of green tea. After taking some advil for the pounding head, I brewed some tea. It should work because it tastes AWFUL. I hope this is an acquired taste. I am open for suggestions!!
After talking to the gals this morning, as well as Cindi, I have decided that my fatigue is probably due to the pollen. Georgia in the springtime....can't be beat!
The pollen is not bothering the boys as you can see. They have to get in their "couchtime" this week before Bailey arrives.

Karin--how does your tea taste awful??? Make sure you only brew it for 5 minutes--no more. Add a little sugar while it's still hot. Or some honey. Can't wait to see what you find for the mystery quilt. Gretch

Wonderful shopping with you too! I had so much fun! We found some great stuff. Thanks, Melisa! So glad that you are doing "Orange Crush" or "Whatever Crush.". Remember the three dark fabrics, you want the same value and for them to read tone-on-tone. I can't figure out the accent at all, so I copied Bonnie's color :)

Hope that the green tea help! If not, try some chocolate. It's medicinal, as my grandmother would say:)

I agree with Becky - chocolate makes everything better. Sounds like it was a good thing I did not go to Sweet Home because I would have wanted to buy something.

Hi Karin,
Sorry I missed you guys Saturday! I was babysitting my heart of hearts, Hayden, due to a last minute mix-up with his parents' work and school schedules...Grammy to the rescue! We had loads of fun, but I was happy to see his mommy pull into the drive! A two year old is a little much for me these days! After a nap, I played hooky from the shop the rest of the day! Got a little sample quilting done, and worked on the website. It should be up and running soon...woot woot!
Have a good week...
Melisa @ Sweet Home
