Homeward Bound...

We left Williamsburg, Virginia yesterday and are nearly home. 

I've had this ceramic pin for about fifteen years and
it's always been one of my favorite, whimsical pieces to wear.
It reminded me of Kessie with her silly ears, and
she was never one to turn down a little ride in the car.
It just seemed the right image for today's post.

I'm hoping to find an artist some day who could make another one 
for me, but with a corgi that looks like Taggart grinning out the window.
Tag has become quite the little traveler, so it would be perfect for him, too!

I've got so many exciting things to share with you in the next week,
least of which will be a giveaway that I've been planning 
to celebrate over 800 posts (It's actually 867 today!)

I'll do my regular weekend posts, but starting next week I'll share a few
revelations and then launch my 800th Plus Post Giveaway. (Catchy, eh?)
Thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions for locating my
Rhapsody of Grace fabric. I placed an order online yesterday 
and received an online confirmation for my order right away. 
I'm crossing my fingers that they actually have what I need now.
Because we're on the road, and I placed the order online while we
were driving (don't you just love modern technology?) I'll have to
wait until Monday to call and find out if it's on its way to me.

I'll be home late today, and will be back in the studio as soon as I can.
Enjoy your weekend...I have lots of relaxing planned!

So glad you may have located some fabric. I had no luck looking for you today however I did come away with a swag of fabrics for my Farmer's Wife quilt. Can't wait to hear about your wee trip. Safe journey to you all.

Safe flying home in your Cloud Cottage. It will be so good to get home and in your very own comfort zone. What an adorable pin and sweet memories it holds. I am certain there must be an artist who can make you one with Tag in the window. Maybe your local artist guild in your town might have a contact? So happy you might have found your fabric. Happy trails to you...

I am so relieved that you found the fabric as no one around here had any or could make a suggestion where it might be found!
It will be wonderful to have you back in the "saddle" and I can hardly wait to see the photos Donna!
Have a very happy weekend...

Hi Donna! That pin is so cute. It reminds me of my little dog Honey, she loves to go in the car and poke her head out the window. Sometimes scares the heck out of us as she hates motorcycles and barks at them and also our long suffering postman who just laughs at her. There is a big bark in such a small dog. :)
Safe travels home, Sandy.

That pin is so adorable!!!! It's so funny how pups love to stick their heads out car windows. I'm always so afraid they are going to fall out...LOL If I find something corgi-wise in a pin, I'll be sure to let you know!!! Glad you had a wonderful time!
