Slight Revamp, A Secret Project, and A Trip to Michigan

I have finally figured out how to add tabs and pages to my blog. So I have stolen borrowed a fellow blogger's idea of keeping track of works in progress and completed projects. It was actually a shock to see how many projects I have in the works, and I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a few.

Edit: I'm not sure I like how cluttered those pages look. I might actually break it out into categories, with finished and pending projects for that category on the same page/tab. I'm thinking I might use the following categories: Quilting, Bees and Swaps, Other Sewing Projects, Cross-Stitching, and Misc. Other Projects.

I think I mentioned a few days ago that I had started paper piecing and couldn't post the end result because it would give away what I was working on. Suffice it to say, it's a quilt. I've bought the fabric and made several blocks for it since then. The worst part about this secret quilt is not being able to share the pictures, because they're so bright and happy. But I will once it's finished and with its intended owner.

In other news, we made reservations for flights to Michigan over Thanksgiving. Our original plan was to fly out Wednesday evening, DH managed to get the opening shift that day. Then we'd stay until Sunday afternoon, just in time for us to rest up a bit before DH's next opening shift on Monday. That was the plan until I looked at tickets. At first I thought taht $600+ was the price for both of us, then I went to check out and had a rude awakening when I saw $1,200+. That definitely wasn't happening. So I checked surrounding dates and we figured out that it would be cheapest to fly in early on Thursday and fly back on Saturday afternoon. That turned our three and a half day trip into a two and a half day trip, but it will be so worth it to see our families.
