Home at last

It was a busy week of travel (NY to MI to CA and back to NY). When I left CA last night it was 80 degrees. When I arrived home this morning it was 6 degrees! I admit, the warm weather, sun, and blue sky was nice to see while in CA but I am glad to be back home. There is nothing better than sleeping in your own bed after a week of dry hotel rooms.

One of the best parts about coming home (of course, seeing DH and dog) was the box of goodies I received from my Jan 'Little Chocolate - Little Fabric' swap partner, Laura. I knew the box would be waiting for me and I made myself unpack before I ripped the box open! Look at the wonderful things she sent!!!

I also managed to finish the top for my Jan mini-quilt swap partner but I don't want to spoil the surprise just yet. I'll post photos once it is completely finished and on it's way to my partner. This was my 1st attempt at paper piecing. In general, I like the process. I used regular copy paper and it was a pain to get the all the paper off - did not enjoy that part of the process. Next time (which will be for Feb's mini-quilt swap) I will use different paper or maybe a really light weight interfacing.

This week I joined a virtual quilting bee. I have followed the progress of a few other virtual bees I am really excited to be a part of this one.
