I have returned from my jaunt with loads of fabric, a new husband, and the flu.  Yikes.  We got in late last night and I kind of threw stuff at my sewing room.  After my death march to finish 4 quilts for grand daughters (mission accomplished) my sewing room is in a bit of a shamble.  The final quilt was finished and bound at 6pm the night before we left.  Sewing machines all over luckily you cannot see the mess on the other side of the table, thread, machingers, leader and enders!  Yikes.

Pile of scrap fabric, and batting under the ironing board, fabric laying all over. Sorry for the wonky photo.

My cutting table covered with rotary cutters, left over binding, rulers, extra cutting mats, new fabric acquisitions, newly sharpened scissors (Thanks DAD!), patters via mom, and of course a huge bag of chocolate, and underneath it all my poor Easy street quilt parts waiting to be put together. 

Had a wonderful time visiting my family, a little bit of antiquing, quilt shopping, and lots of time with the female grand minions.  It was wonderful.  So while I work at cleaning up this disaster and recover from the flu, and a snow day for the male minion persuasion say a little prayer for me.  :)

Rogue thanks.  There are definitely different strains of flu out there especially between the east coast/midwest and west coast.  Finally feeling a wee bit better. 

I lucked out at Fabric Depot they had a 30% off sale, on all fabrics (I barely made it there on the last day which was Monday) and I also had a 35% off coupon.  I ended up with 10 yds of batiks for my strip swap and my stash for about $100.  Not too bad considering I have very expensive tastes when it comes to Batiks.  :)
