We leave tomorrow morning for a 12-day Panama Canal transit cruise - first time we have traveled in over 18 months. John's excited - well, it is a jazz cruise. And I have my iPad loaded with books that I'm looking forward to reading. The studio is ready for the carpet cleaner, projects are lined up for when I return (baby quilt for a niece, Christmas purse, piles of Marcia Derse fabs just waiting to be touched, and handquilting the colorful elliptical Drunkard's path). This piece from Camp Stitchalot and Sherri Lynn Wood's class is mostly quilted. The background still needs to be done. I like it. Except I wish I didn't think of a badminton shuttlecock when I look at this. Happy December!
