Preparing for The Princess.
Everyone in the 'realm' is fairly giddy with excitement. The Princess will be home for a visit beginning this Sunday. Preparations are in full swing for her pending arrival. Her bedroom, once again, looks like an actual bedroom - there is no pea under the mattress. The cupboards are filling with all the favorite foods for meals and snacks. We are looking forward to a good time over the next 3 weeks - a birthday party fit for a princess, a visit from a friend who has never been to California, laughing, games and the feeling of the whole family all in one place.
This selection of fabrics is pulled and ready to become a quilt. I try to not go digging around the closet while The Princess is back in her room if I can help it. Along with some works already in progress, this should keep me plenty busy during the times she is out visiting, shopping, etc. Only 3 days, 6 hours and 55 minutes to go . . .

Such a beautiful room. As I admired the wall hanging I started to get that sinking feeling. Oh yes I started that quilt too a long time ago. It lurks in the back of my sewing cupboard as .....you guessed it - a UFO
