Sewing soon....

I have a meeting here tonight of my antique club. Not only do I feel the house has to be orderly and clean but I'm giving the program. So this has had me obsessed with cleaning and organizing since I got home from our trip plus, of course, battling jet lag. Tomorrow, finally, I hope to sew and start messing things up again!!!!  I have a lace project unfinished from before our trip which will get top priority and then, what will it be? So many possibilities.

Home again

I'm home again, this time from a vacation trip to Thailand. It was fabulous of course. Lots of wonderful experiences and way too much of the terrific cuisine. I brought home two pieces of fabric but they are not silk. I was disappointed in the silks I saw. I can do better price wise here in the states. But I did find some interesting textiles and bought a hand woven cotton in colorful stripes and a burn out cotton in a voile like texture. It was hard for me to focus when we were in the shops because it was so hot and humid. I got sort of crazy and stupid. Perhaps if I hadn't I would have bought lots more.
