long day

I got Raine to the plane on time. She made it to Atlanta, where her grandparents met her, and I'm sure she is - well - sleeping now, but ready for lots of fun this week. We sent her with a digital camera, to record her adventures, and she told me over the phone that she's taken "lots of pictures of Jody" already. (Jody is her stuffed dog)

I got to nap a little when I got home, but then I've had a late night, gaming. Zombies must be done away with, even if that zombie apocalypse happens in the fantasy past. We survived a Demon Zombie, and an explosion before, after and during killing zombie after zombie. Our catch phrases from this adventure seem to be, "OK, NOW you can set that on fire." and "Not the face, not the face!"

Tomorrow, Roxanne's coming over, and we'll plan our sewing for the next few weeks and cut some things out to go into our project basket. I'll probably work on my fabric scraps organization project that has been cluttering up the living room, and has caused hours of ironing to occur. I've almost got that worked through, although I am almost afraid to look in any more boxes, as I keep finding MORE SCRAPS! I've gotten several sets of squares cut out for our quilt project though.

You may be asking yourself why I'm sitting here writing this, if I'm so tired and have been up so long... and it IS a good question, really. In fact, I think I will put it - and me - to bed.

Lillian's been sewing up a storm, and I wish she could join you guys because I know having company would make it lots more fun, even if she's not making clothes.

However, we did pick up two patterns that I like. When did patterns become so bloody expensive? These were on sale or we never would've, but damn! $15 to $17 for a PATTERN? My head almost blew up.

Enjoy your sewing! And I can't wait to see Raine's pictures!

Joann's rotates pattern sales, so you can pick them up for a couple of bucks if you wait for it. You can check their sales fliers online on their website. Yeah, other than that, WAY too expensive, I think.

I wish Lillian could join us too, and we would learn something too! We don't just sew clothes, and like to branch out and experiment.
