i should be working...

but i just wanted to check in to say that i had a wonderful vacation. my mom and i were busy bees. we hung up wall decorations so that my apartment no longer resembles an insane asylum. we got lots of storage for my crafting room so it's slightly less of a mess. we made multiple joann fabrics trips, buying sale fabrics and lots of patterns. we picked up Sew U and now i have lots of ideas for new clothes. i quilted half of my baby quilt. we sampled lots of local cuisine. we saw the new harry potter and it was ok. we went shopping and i got some new clothes, although i realized that i now hate shopping. we went to a LYS that has spinning supplies, and i got some new roving to try. we dyed and spun up some brown sheep roving so that she could see how it was done. AND my mom bought me a brand spankin new serger for my birthday! she brought hers with her, but she hadn't used it in years, and when we tried it out, the thing broke after 2 seconds. i can't wait til the weekend when i'll have more time to work with it.

and that will have to hold you til i have time to take pictures. at least this'll bump the termite costume.

  4. How wonderful, your own serger! Sounds like you had a great time with Mom. Cool.
    Lots of work to catch up on after time off though.

  5. New sewing machine, sweet! I'd love one of your self-proclaimed half-assed reviews on Sew U, too.
