I'm off on another mission trip for a little while leaving hubby to keep the home fires burning. I reminded him to water the plants, bought him some Healthy Choice frozen dinners, and told my neighbor/best friend to keep an eye on him. I forgot to tell him not to get on the roof to blow out the gutters while I'm gone so honey if you're reading this...don't!!! We've been married over 47 years now and I'm pretty sure he can take care of himself (he's a better cook than me) but still, leaving him for the month I'll be gone does produce a bit of anxiety.
And yes, I said I'll be gone a month. I'm going to be working for a friend who has a medical procedure to get taken care of. I brought plenty of stitching to do - more than I could do in several months probably. I have enough nine patches that my mother hand pieced to put together two quilt tops. I cut out the sashing for them so they're ready to begin. And I have about a million 6" squares and strips that go with them from an exchange in our guild to make a really big scrap quilt. I brought four embroidery projects and one wool one. I think I can keep busy in the evenings!
I took a picture on the way down here to share with you....looks a bit like I envision Tara (Gone With The Wind) with the big pillars, the live oaks and the Spanish moss.
