Today we had the closest day of Spring as I can say as the temperature was 70 degrees and sunny. I had a great morning........went to get my hair trimmed, then on to some last minute errands before our trip tomorrow.
Yesterday I worked on the Be Still Sampler by The Sampler Girl and changed the colors a bit to something in my stash. I just love the Crescent Colors. The color names just make it more fun. At the bottom of the q-snap frame, you will see the fabric I chose to put on the back to make a small hanging pillow when completed.
About 5-6 months ago, I converted a linen closet downstairs to a sewing nook. Today, we got the electrical outlet in place so that I can plug in my sewing machine and get busy on finishing some stitched pieces.
Tonight I have packing to do and I am not the greatest at packing for a trip. I usually take waaaaaay more that I need to wear and now that the airlines charge for luggage weight, I"m having to really learn to pack better. On our last trip to Chicago, I literally crossed my fingers that my bag didn't weigh over 50 lbs as that is an extra charge. Let's say my luggage passed at 49.5 lbs! Whew! I will be attending a Women's Health conference for work this week in Washington, D.C. The topic is related to issues for women over 40. This should be quite interesting. So, I will be putting on my career hat this week and discussing things like PMS, mood swings, hot flashes, and menopause. Working in this field, I can venture to say that there is never a boring day! ;)
oh, and did I forget to say I absolutely love my new scissors?
