um just about everything..


blogs...
did you know that when you have over 1000 unread posts in google reader it stops counting & just says 1000+ ??
well it does.
it's crazy how many posts accumulate in 12 days of being away...
so if i usually read your blog.. i'll be back.. just give me a bit of time to dig through the 1000+ posts.


laundry...
i only took 2 suitcases...
so why do i have 5 loads of laundry to do?


food...
i don't think i've ever eaten out so much in my life!
best thing we did was go to the market... got a case of water, chips, apples, cookies... and some other snacks...
but still ate out a lot..
and came home.. to an almost empty fridge...
so food shopping needs to happen...


sewing...
don't even try to guess how long this list is...
i need to clean my studio {i left it looking like a tornado had come to visit}
sort & put away all my purchases & goodies from market/PIQF
and get back to sewing!
i haven't been away from my babies {machines} this long since i started sewing!!
i sent them in for service while i was away & i'm going to pick them up in a few hours...

first on the list...
i've got about a week to finish a queen size quilt from Nature's Notebook
gotta love deadlines!!
i can't show it to you yet... but when i can... you are gonna love it!!!


oh and market pictures..
are sooo coming.
just gimmie a few minutes {days} to sort them

and..

i'm just a few away from 100 posts!!
& that means giveaway..
i think i brought a few extra things back from market i can share..
so come back soon!

Can't wait to hear about everything... I am glad that you had a great time...how smart to send your machines out for service. I've been wondering now that I'm sewing more how I would ever go without!

angela said...

yep - the worst thing about traveling. The laundry somehow grows within the suitcase!

Michelle said...

I am glad to hear that things went well and that you are back. I just find out about Nature's notebook. I am making a king size quilt with Sunshine and I am so happy to see Nature's notebook come out. I am going to mix in some of those fabrics.
