Road Trip Stitchin

Unfortunately it wasn't possible to have a Stunning Stitchin Sunday post yesterday. I've been out of town since last Monday afternoon (we were in Pittsburgh at our China travel group annual reunion) and although I tried to read blog posts so that I could find some great quilting to share, the internet connection in the hotel was really poor and I lost the signal a lot.
Oh well, these things happen but rest assured that Stunning Stichin Sunday will return this weekend and there will be lots of great quilting inspiration to see.

I was able to actually get something accomplished while I was away. I had picked up Joey's 100 Good Wishes Quilt from my long arm quilter the Thursday afternoon before our trip and although I tried my darnedest to get the binding finished and the quilt shipped out before we left, it just didn't happen so I took it with me on the road, finished it on our way west and shipped it from a local Office Max on Wednesday. I'm happy to report that it arrived on Saturday and Kris immediately took it to him. That quilt deserves its own post and that is coming up next.

I was also able to complete the binding on the Dots In The Wind quilt that has been a UFO for way too long. The label will be added this week and this beauty will be gifted to its new owner.
On the trip back home yesterday I was also able to get a lot accomplished on a small counted cross stitch project. I haven't done any counted cross stitching in a very long time so it felt good to get back to it. I have a bunch of these projects that I finally want to get done.
This week my new desk is arriving at work so I'll be rearranging everything there while trying to get the work itself caught up, our stamped concrete patio is finally going in and the school shopping has to get started. The new school year will be here before I know it. I'm looking forward to Friday when I'll be able to get back into my studio and start a new project.

What is on tap for you this week?

Did you have a chance to get a photo of Joey's quilt with the quilting/binding completed?? Maybe I missed it. Sounds like you had a great time!!! Hugs.......
