Back at Home & Sleepy

I am back from my travels & living like some kind of a nocturnal creature for the last two days. Somehow transitioning to a new time zone was no problem when I had to get up and work & teach all day every day but has been MUCH harder when back in the luxury of my own home, napping when I want [& the munchkins let me] and waking up in the middle of the night, ready for a tasty dinner snack :-)!

To finish off my travels, my bags decided to do another little tour of Paris while I landed in San Francisco and when they finally did arrive 48 hrs later, it looked like they had walked around in the rain for a few days… rain on the inside of the bags! I don’t know how & what but its been quite an adventure, more for my luggage than me I guess!

Today I am down loading photos so bear with me while I post back with my first in what I am sure is a series of “travel posts”.

On the home front, Fresh Vintage #6Fv2255
is finally in the mail. So for those of you who have been patiently waiting, its on the way and for those of you who are still waiting to order it, now is the time. We still have some left from our first printing so don’t delay.

More importantly our website,, now has a secure shopping cart for quick and easy pattern & Fresh Vintage ordering. We always recommend that you shop at your local quilt or fabric shop first and foremost but for those of you who don’t have a local quilt shop that carries our patterns,purse handles or books you need, our website is your best bet. For the month of December, if you place the initial F in between your first & last name when ordering online from our website, we will include a free pattern with your order! This will be your special Fresh Figs secret code!
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with the first pics from Europe….

talk to you soon.

    Sounds like you had a great trip, but I’m sure you’re happy to be home — your luggage too!

    I’m glad to hear you have a shopping cart on your website now — I can’t wait to order the last couple of Fresh Vintage issues.
