Thanks to everyone for the positive comments last post; greatly appreciated!

Not much has been happening here in the last week; we've had a run of hot, humid days, followed by thunderstorms in the evenings. Not very conducive to sitting at the sewing machine under layers of quilt! Some of the lightening was spectacular though, and worth sitting awake in the middle of the night to watch.

My only sewing progress this week is the mystery BOM block 5; its pretty cute! I'm loving how much fabric I have left over from these blocks...hopefully enough to put together a scrappy quilt later on.

It's now only two weeks till I head to the USA; for the last couple of days I've been planning how to visit as many quilt shops in Las Vegas on my free day as possible! I want to go (at least) to The Christmas Goose and Quiltique, and possible one or two more if I can. The plan is to hire a car for the day, and brave the whole "driving-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-road" thing. I've heard the outlet shopping malls are worth a visit too, so I think having a car for the day is probably a good plan.
