I'm in between travels

Oh how I love the Carolinas.  I've returned from a visit to my daughter's home in Charlotte and a quick visit to my beloved Charleston.  Everything was so green and lush.  Even though the azaleas and rhododendrons were no longer in bloom there were plenty of other spring flowers showing their vibrant colors.
In a week I am off to Oregon.  I have not been to the "Beaver" state in 4 years and am looking forward to seeing the Cascades and more lush flora.

You know how the best plans go awry sometimes?  I was on a roll using up scraps to make a quilt.  I still can't figure out how I was able to cut 5 strips of fabric 4.25 inches instead of 4.50 inches, guess it's time to get new glasses or an AccuCut.  Our local quilt shop here has strange hours so I have been unable to run and get the extra fabric - drat.
Thought I would include a picture of how I am using up some of my scraps.

  1. Wouldn't it be great if they would figure out a ruler built into our glasses so we'd see before the cut that we were off my a quarter inch...

    I forgot to ask are you coming to the neighborhood on a vacation?
