It's been a bit since I've posted anything. Work has been really hectic since the end of April. Then on top of that, I found out the first week of May that DD was getting out of school early (they didn't use their snow days), but summer camp wouldn't start until June 1st. Leaving us without any type of day care for DD for a entire week. After looking at mine and DH's work schedules and travel plans for the next couple of months, we decided the last week of May would probably be the best week for the family summer vacation. So on top of the madness at work (which included packing up my office for a move to a new office located in another building), I ended up trying to figure out the how, what, and where of vacation.
So we spent last week in Savannah, GA. Savannah is a beautiful city. We had a wonderful time. We walked all over the historic district learning (relearning?) history and admiring the beautiful architecture. We spent one day out on Tybee Island; the morning at the light house and the afternoon on the beach. DD had a blast. I didn't get to go to any quilt shops, but I did find a beautiful pieced wall hanging from India in a "free trade" shop. The squares are recycled from used Sari's, which are sewn to cording. The piece is not quilted, but it is backed. I loved the colors and the embroidery on the fabrics. This wall hanging will go into my new office to brighten up the industrial beige walls and hopefully will keep me inspired and energized to work on my own pieceing projects when I get home.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day.
