Back in the Saddle

I'm baaack! Yep, we got home on Monday afternoon and I'm ready to sew. I spent the majority of yesterday getting caught up on work emails and packing orders. Today I might get to make something!! That'd be fun.

I picked up lots of great goodies on the trip. I wanted everything at Cath Kidston but went for this cool rolly suitcase. I'd just been saying I needed a carry-on bag with wheels. Happy Birthday to me! (Thanks Nick for making me get this) I also got this. If Mrs. Kwitty ever comes over I better lock it away, I know she'd try to steal it. hehe

Nick also got me this gorgeous navy blue trench coat from Laura Ashley. This is probably the nicest item of clothing I own now & I love it! I have such a nice husband.

I must say, these two were happy to see us return. They've been very nearby since we got home. I think the live-in cat sitter was a great idea.

And now I can get to this lovliness that arrived right before we went away. Can you believe that? A whole pile of Heather Bailey goodness has been waiting for my return the sewing room. What shall I make first?

Oh my gosh - that carry on bag is so YOU. I wouldn't be surprised if you went into the shop and it had your name on it!!!

Gorgeous trench - what a nice husband you have. : )

Have fun with all that delicious fabric!!!

I agree with Jenn about the carry on! Definitely you. And Nick bought a really beautiful trench coat for you!

Beautiful fabric!!

LOL Ginny--could you hear my jaw drop when I spotted that gorgeous polka dot suitcase?!! You are so funny! My world is complete now that I know that there are actually pretty little blue and white polka dot suitcases out in the world--making travel a little bit sweeter!

Love your trench coat--you DO have a sweety hubby!

I'll bet you missed your little furry pals too...and they look so cute! Have fun with that lovely pile of fabrics :o)

Smiles, Karen

LOVE the bag!

First what to do with the fabric? Put it in front of you, spread it all out and just stare, perhaps drool. Then roll around in it. After that? I don't know.

Happy weekend to you!

Ooh, that fabric looks awesome! I don't sew AT ALL, but I am into paper (too much into it ;) so I know the feeling! I'm sure you will come up with something fabulous!
