Vacation, etc.

After what seemed like an eternity of sickness this past winter/spring, Tim and I managed to sneak in a 10 day vacation.  We decided to take it in the spring in anticipation of his hip replacement surgery coming up in a few days.  We knew he'd be down for a few weeks and wanted to spend some pleasant times together before the ordeal.  And a pleasant time it was!  We didn't have much of a plan and basically "flew by the seat of our pants" ( in his Dodge Challenger!--don't worry we didn't get any tickets).  We started out in Hot Springs, Arkansas with a mineral bath and massages.  From there we headed to Tennessee and enjoyed our time in the Smokey Mountain National Park.  We met up with old friends and went to "Dollywood" then headed to Ashville and toured the Biltmore Mansion (pictured above).  We ended with a school/family/church reunion in Missouri.

Then.....came home and promptly came down with bronchitis.  BOTH OF US!  I coughed so hard I cracked a rib and am still feeling the pain from that.

In the meantime, I'm getting ready for the "Quilt Tulsa 2012" show coming up next weekend, June 8 and 9.  I have all 4  entries ready except for a hanging sleeve on one.  I'll post pictures when I have someone to hold the quilts up for me.  Or maybe I'll just wait and take pictures when they're hanging in the show.
Come and join us if you're in the area.  It will be at the Tulsa Fairgrounds.  For more info go to :

Wish me luck!  I'm hoping for some ribbons.  Hope to see some of you there!

Hope you are starting to feel better. I just know you will win a ribbon on the quilt with all the flowers. I've missed reading your blogs.

Please be careful if you are helping at the quilt show.

Good luck in the show.
