Back to reality

This back to reality thing after market is HARD!  After a little bout of Market flu ( seriously could not move for two days), I had to get back into a routine that was somehow very easily pushed out of my brain by all the fabulous I had experienced in KC.  I need to figure out how to start a quilting commune ;o)  I wonder if Bernina would sponsor one,LOL!

So y'all know I was not a complete slacker, here is what I did on the plane.  This was HUGE for me since I do not hand sew. I have to admit that it was fun and the guy sitting next to me was telling me about how his mother would make his clothing growing up.  Sewing is a common thread most people can relate to, one of the many things to love about it!!!!



When I returned home I had this AMAZING parcel waiting at my doorstep!!!!! I had won a giveaway from Sago On Tuesdays. It is a beautiful hand bound leather notebook and a couple of smaller notebooks...all STUNNING!!!!!  I am one LUCKY girl!!!!! Sonya's work is breathtaking. Go check out her blog and her shop!!!!!
 


I finally received my Flea Market Fancy!!!!!! I have plans for this that  *fingers crossed* will work out. One can never tell for certain with plans, they seem to always change at the last minute ;o)

This magazine...YES! I read it from cover to cover on the plane ride from KC to ATL!!!!! I am ready for the next issue!!!! Great job and congratulations on a wonderful magazine Generation Q!!!!!!  And Scott Hansen wears the best shirts I have ever seen!!!!!!


Now back to choosing fabrics for my bag for PURSE PALOOZA 2012.  It starts next Friday and I am so excited!!!!


I *think* these are my choices but we shall see...



Time to get back to reality and do some dishes before I start sewing again!!!!!

Glad you are feeling better! That notebook is stunning - you are lucky!

Your hexagons are awesome! They definitely are a great airplane project and probably what I'll be working on while winging it Sewing Summit!
I can't wait for Purse Palooza to begin and I"m even more excited that Sara asked me to do a bag for it! Eep!

I'm flying out of ATL for a week in Orlando (conference) next week - I haven't packed, or planned my ride to and from the airport...but I DID manage to get my little hand-sewing bag all prepared, lol.

Oh Kim, I'm so glad you like your prize journal. Im hoping it will inspire you to jot, create and explore ideas when you are out and about. Who knows what wonderful projects come from a few moments to sit and write down your thoughts.
Thanks again for following along with the Sago bindery journey. We have another email subscribers seasonal prize being drawn after July 31st, so lots more chances to join in the fun.

Cheers,

~Sonya, in the bindery~

Hmmm! My curiosity is killing me. How did you sew on an airplane? I always want to take my projects but just figured airport security would take my needles and small scissors. Thanks!
