10-Day Occupy Sewing Room

 Nothing makes time fly like engrossing oneself
in a project (or five?).
So when the DH is on a business trip,
need like to get a lot of projects going.

Basically, it's Occupy Sewing Room time.

While he's in England and Switzerland
(pout, pout)
these next days, I'm going to get a nice,
early start on my Summer Stitching.

(I've been wanting to do this one forever!)
 Days and days of serious fabric domesticity.
(can I say that?)
I really don't even have to make dinner.
(I have easy-fix meals planned like deli sandwiches, Mexican food
fixings made up from Cinco de Mayo, etc.  The kids are all old enough
to create their own dishes, though I'm sure I'll make a meal here and there.)
Ms. Pouty McPout-Pout is staying postive. 
Going to order up lattes and put on music.
(I love how these fabrics look together but sorry, it's cloudy here--had to
use a flash. Maybe the next update pic will show more...)
First up will be to finish that Summer Day quilt.
These little pieces aren't going together as
precise as I would like but I'm fighting my
normal self and just going with it.

Then the Betz White Kaitlyn Bag.
It's gorgeous!
I seriously could not have picked out a
bag more "me" myself!
(Did that make sense?)
(Anyone else just nuts about all the bags out there?)
Other things on my "keep busy" list:
Antique shopping
Clean windows and carpets (boring!)
Read one/some of the 5,000 books on my list

I would be pouty too to miss the trip. So sew away, come out for air and latte when you need it and create all week. Love the bag and pattern, too. Maybe I will join you and occupy my room after PT today and dream of stitching.

Oh my heavens, I absolutely LOVE that bag!! I can't wait to see your interpretation of it... you know mine would be pinks, greens and chocolate brown... gorgeous!!

Yes, while the cat's away....have fun with that fabric stash. Love the bag! As long as the kids have peanut butter and jelly, they won't starve.

With all you have planned, time will fly by! Love that quilt and that bag is to die for - love all of Betz White's work.

Sounds like a neat trip your husband got to go on but look at all the sewing you got done! Love your purse!
