Going on "staycation" starting today! I'm hopping in my car and heading up the road...a whole 20 miles...to Beautiful Downtown Lakewood, Washington for a week. Holing up in an extended stay and sewing my brains out. It's close enough that I can run back home if I really need to, but far enough away that I can't come home to make breakfast, lunch, or dinner, haha.
I just asked my son, Ben, to haul my "fabric suitcase" out to the car. Ugh. It's a LOT bigger and heavier than my "clothes suitcase!"
I have lots of projects, including a quilt I've been working on (or not) for more than a year for Ben and his lovely wife, Autumn. Some table runners, a lot of Shoop-Shoop Bags, some little girl chalkboard fabric placemats, and lots of other stuff. How much will I get to? I have no idea...I guess it depends on how much wine I drink ;-)
I also have a list from the Western Washington Shop Hop with the name and address of ALL the surrounding LQSs! Of course, with that huge "fabric suitcase" I shouldn't NEED to visit any LQSs, right? Well, I'm sure there will be a few things I will need to pick up, and also there's a JoAnn's just a few miles away as well.
So no blogging until I get back because I'm not taking my little netbook - my smartphone is so much faster, but I don't think I want to try to blog using it, but who knows? So I'll see you all soon...Happy Sewing in the meantime!
