Been AWOL a bit...

My folks were visiting for a few days.
It was action packed.
We went to the American Craft Council show.
My favorite artist was doing paper cutting.
Her work was WAY out of any possible price range I have, but I could have looked at one of her pieces for hours. She spends up to 6 months on one large piece.
Wow. I don't even have much patience for mild embroidery....

We had a pre-bday dinner for The Pirate!

I went to the Sewing Expo in Duluth.
I was kind of disappointed. There was a lot of embroidery stuff, not a lot of what I was looking for in the way of quilting stuff to purchase.
The sewing machines I wanted to see in person weren't there.
On the upside, the NY Modern Quilt guild had minis.
Those were my favorite part.
I was a bit frustrated that I had shelled out moolah I could have spent on fabrics.

Sunday, I sewed up a storm for The Pirate.
I still didn't get his bday present done, but he got 4 new shopping bags!
(The top one is NOT's red cabbage.)



I also finished the top of my Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL.
Sew. Happy. Quilt.  DONE!!!!

Tomorrow I'm posting the For the Love of Solids package.
I had planned on doing it today, but I had to bake some Chocolate Stout cupcakes for a certain fiance who is getting OLDER tomorrow. *cough*
I am also hustling to the dentist to get a sore spot checked out. My mouth is hurty because of a blister looking thingie on my gum. Let me tell you, it has to be pretty hurty to lure me to the dentist on a non cleaning appt. This whole daylight savings time thing wipes me out anyway.

Oh! I got a new puter! Er...I got loaned a new puter from work. It has a spiffy purple case.
Also, I forgot to take Rockin Robin pics still. I promise I'll get it up sometime this week.
What are y'all up to?
