We're off to Kansas!

I know I have been a bad blogger lately.  With a move coming up and time not slowing down, I've been otherwise, occupied.  We finally found out this morning where we are going to be moving to.  We will be moving to McConnell AFB, Kansas.  It is near Wichita, Kansas.  I haven't found out much about the base or the area yet, so if anyone lives near there, let me know.  I'm hoping for some quilting, stitching, rug hooking and knitting shops in the area.  You know, I don't need much, just those important places.  LOL  Like I don't have a shop with all of my stash, already.  But you know, it's nice to have shops to go to for inspiration.

School has only 7 more weeks to go here.   My oldest, Brett, has a band concert tomorrow night.  We just got the dog and cat fixed, and the dog has to go back to get his stitches out.  I just found out that my youngest, Thomas, needs another shot (haven't told him this yet).  He's a trooper though, with shots.  It seems like life is catching up to me at the moment without the move in the midst.

I'm, anxiously, awaiting for new things to come out at market.  I just saw Blackbird Designs new book, Country Inn,  for pre-order.  I have to have it and I've been waiting to see pics.  I can't wait to see what all of the other designers have coming out for us.  Like I need new projects.  Since I will be getting things ready for packing/moving, I'll have to live through you all for awhile.  I have the new Schnibbles book coming to me and can't wait for it to arrive.  I just got in some charm sets for some projects from the book.  Not sure I'll get to work on them before moving, but it's fun to dream about them.

I'm off to see if I can find out anything about Kansas, until next time, Happy Stitching, Quilting, Rug Hooking, and Knitting!

The Blackbird Designs book looks like it is going to be a good one.
I don't know a thing about Kansas except it is flat.

Congrats on being able to move back to the states! I was just asking Mary the other day how you were doing. I'm sure you have just a TON of stuff to do now!

I think Heart's Desire is located in Wichita, and that's a great store. There's a couple of stitchers that I know that live in the area, do you want their email?

I was born and raised in Wichita! Hot, muggy but a great city with lots to do! Haven't lived there since 1974 but I'm sure there are some quilt stores. There's a big quilt show each year (I think) at Century 2 ( a huge arena). Have fun exploring!!!
