Sure didn't mean to blog-fade again, but 'tis the season! Both work and Christmas prep have had me crazy, but work is over until next Thursday and I've got all of the gifts bought and wrapped. I still have a bit (a lot) more sewing to do...but I think things are under control.
I did take some time this morning to go shopping with a friend. I've been racing from one thing to the next the past couple of weeks and didn't think I had time as I have so much more to do before the big day. But then I thought about what's more important and decided I'd be much happier taking the time to have a girl's day out. Cathy and I went here and there - she helped me shop for a last minute gift for my daughter and we went to the LQS and out to lunch today. I'm so glad I did - it definitely gave me a lift, not to mention we were very productive!
I've been meaning to post about a couple of things. I was super lucky during the recent shop hop in October and won the basket at my very last stop - Granny's Sewing Den (which is conveniently about 3 minutes from my office). I stopped there the very last day of the hop during lunch and got a phone call at 5pm saying I'd won! Well, that was certainly worth the trip! The basket - which was actually a really cool tote bag - which was great because the last thing I need is another basket - was filled with great loot. It included some "green" batting, a bunch of patterns, three spools of thread in beautiful colors, a book on color, some fabric and a little wall hanging kit. Thanks, Granny's!
June Tailor Shape Cut Pro ruler I saw at our guild meeting last month (thanks, Pat!) Can't wait to try that one out!
I'll be back before Christmas to show off all of the goodies I've made!
