Almost Time!!!!


I'm so excited that it's almost time to reveal Odyssey! I so LOVE this pattern!!! And hope you do, too. For those of you new to the blog, the quilt is patterned in all the 2015 issues of Hexie Love - a little bit each issue, with the final instructions coming up in the November/December issue, just days away!


Have you heard this song? "Can't Sleep Love" by Pentatonix. I saw this group sing this song on Jimmy Fallon recently and now it's one of my favorites. It's an accupello group (NO musical instruments). 

And why did I take a photo of my car radio screen? I'm compiling a list of songs for the wedding reception playlist - and I can never remember the songs and artists. So if I'm at a stop light or in a parking lot, I take a photo of the dash when a good song is playing.



Yesterday was a day of errands. I traveled to Columbus, GA, (only about a 30-40 minutes away) to pick up the wedding dress. Yay! BUT before that, I stopped by a mall in Columbus to visit H&M. The last time I'd been in an H&M was about 20 years ago during a trip to New York City. When I heard one had opened in Columbus, I was anxious to go. So go, I did!

And guess what? I found not one, but TWO pairs of new jeans! Now maybe this doesn't sound worthy of exclamation points to you.... But I've been needing new jeans for MONTHS! I've looked everywhere and tried on dozens of pairs. And I walked into H&M and loved the first pair I tried on. You know, sometimes it's simple things like finding a new pair of jeans (or two) that can make up happy.

So what else is going on around here?
Today I need to photograph the November BOM - top priority. (Heads up, you may get this pattern BEFORE November 1.....)

We have loads of family members coming to town tomorrow (YAY!) for the football game this weekend. Every bed and sofa has been claimed! There will be food, fun, and laughter!

And on a sad note, another family member got a devastating health diagnosis yesterday. Cancer has reared it's ugly head in our family. Prayers....
