Updates and a (short) Break

Hey Ya'll,
First, my hubby and I are going to CANCUN from this Friday-Monday! Can you believe it?  My hubby won the trip through his company and I am SO proud of him!  It was a national sales competition and he was the ONLY Assistant District Manager to WIN in the entire nation!  Is that not the coolest thing ever?  Oh yeah, and the WHOLE trip is paid for! AHHH....I don't feel that fancy to have a trip paid for, but CAN'T wait!!  I just needed to brag about my husband for a little bit because I am SOOOO PROUD of you!! LOVE YOU JON!!  Needless to say I will not be blogging for the next week probably; sorry guys!!  

Second, after we get back I will be hopping in my car and heading down to Houston for Market/Festival and to help out at the shop to prepare for Quilt Festival! By the way, if you're planning on going too our shop, SunFlower Quilts, is only 15 minutes north of downtown and I'd LOVE to meet you!!  Here is a map to the shop! I will be down there for three weeks!  BUSY BUSY BUSY and not sure how much blogging I will get done, but I will try my HARDEST to keep ya'll updated!  Plus, I will be taking TONS of photos to share with ya'll from Market; don't worry!! 

Third, my next Moda Bake Shop project is schedule for November 6th!! YEAH...WOO HOO!  It's called "Awesome" and it's a lap quilt.  I will have a giveaway when it comes out so be on the look out!

Lastly, I made these cute needle holders today out of hexagons (ya'll know how I LOVE hexagons)!  My friend Cara, from STLMQG told me about them and I am so glad she did! Thanks Cara!! Check out her blog it's super cute and inspiring!

Well I guess that's all for now, since I just basically wrote a book on this post :)  Have a great weekend!!

Cancun!? You lucky duck. Have fun!! (How could you not?) :)

Thanks for the shout out. I might have to figure out how to do one of those bigger sized hexies you make and do a large needle book for myself. Or maybe I'll be lazy and just do a rectangle. Yeah, a rectangle, that sounds good. :)
