Tim and I are heading out for another vacation this upcoming Friday, we are going to Maui (my first time in Hawaii!). Tim's parents have a condo there (they otherwise live in SF) so we are meeting up with them there and we'll stay through the 4th of July.
So I've been doing some sewing to get ready for the trip. No, not sewing any beach coverups or fun dresses, rather I spent several hours today working on two baby quilts. My coworker will come back from maternity leave while I'm gone, and I want to have them ready for when she returns. She had twins and was assigned to bed-rest just before we had the office baby shower. Since then I've let the quilts-in-progress languish in the corner. I actually like working on quilts, so not sure why it's taken me so long to get back to these, except that of course it takes time away from my apparel sewing.
All that's left is to apply the binding, which will require some handsewing, best done with some TV as entertainment. Good thing Big Love is on tomorrow night.
Several weeks ago I mentioned that I ordered Patrones Extra (#257) from Around the World. After some time passed, I called to check on why I hadn't received it yet. The gentleman told me that they did not receive #257 in their latest shipment, but they do have #256, the Joven issue, and would I like him to send that one? Well, twist my arm. It arrived on Friday via Fed Ex - lots of great eye candy...
