Flights of Fancy

Last week I finally ordered some more solids for the Flights of Fancy quilt.  Long story, but I thought I'd put a nice plug in for the Fabric Shack and their great customer service.  I couldn't find any coordinating solids at a store nearby so I knew I had to buy some online.  The Fabric Shack has a huge selection of Kona Cotton Solids so I contacted them and they helped me confirm which colors were the best match over the phone.  How awesome is that?!  So I am pretty pleased and really thankful.

So this week I got to keep on working on this quilt.  Yay!  I finished the top this evening.  Take a look. :)

And he's off...

Last January my brother enlisted in the Army.
Today he is leaving to begin his deployment.  His plane leaves this evening for Kuwait.  This is his first stop before beginning his time in Iraq.
He should be gone for a year.
Please pray for his safe return.
