Mondays are possibility days.  I love Mondays.  I have a huge amount of things that need to be done, for Houston Quilt Market and Festival next month.  Piece by piece, things get scratched off the list.
I have great people around me, that still love me with the crazy.  They even help me.  Life chores don't stop when you have your eye on the bigger goal.  Laundry still has to be done, cat and dog hair pile up on the carpet that needs to be vacuumed, dishes, there are always dishes.  Bills remembered and paid.  Thank goodness I have found auto-pay for many things.  We won't have to walk around in the dark, and can still take showers.

We just finished 4 weekends in a row of Quilt Shows.  This weekend we are going to celebrate with our great friends as their daughter gets married.   I'm going to enjoy the break and my friends.

Next week, the Mystery Blog hop is going to start.  Can you believe that they asked me????  My block is the second week of the hop.  Please follow along. You will love the border treatment!!!
