Hi again...we're finally back from vacation (two weeks, but it seemed longer). We had a great time, and I even made a bunch of neutral hexies while we were on our cruise - and then left my sewing bag on the ship!!! I was very, very unhappy with myself for awhile, but I'm (mostly) over it. I think Disney Cruise Line Lost & Found is getting a little tired of hearing from me. I know exactly where the bag is - night table drawer - and I'll just bet no one has used the drawer since we left. So, I'll give it another week or so and then buy some more templates, Gingher embroidery scissors and the really cool needle threader I had just bought. Luckily, I still have more of the fabrics that I had in the bag, so I'll be back in business soon. And will do a much more thorough check next time!!
But, before we went away my very favorite sis-in-law had a big b-day. We surprised her with a dinner party - at her house! We came with dinner in hand (her mom even brought the wine glasses!) She was really surprised and we had a great day.
I had made myself this cute little Snap Happy Bag not too long ago. You use pieces of 1" metal measuring tape for the "snap" part. It's very cool.
