Hitting the Ground Running

Do you ever just have so much fun that you get a headache from it?  I get fun headaches.  Bad ones.  That was me yesterday.  I guess I had just reached my maximum allotment of fun for the week and my head just exploded in pain.  Nothing but sleep would help.

In the end I would say that the pain was worth it though.  My weekend at the Sewing Summit was wonderful – full of friends, classes, sewing and delicious food.  But now it’s Monday again and despite how worn out I am I have to get back to work.  There’s laundry and dishes and homework to help with.  And more sewing to do.

I took two projects with me to work on during the open sew this past weekend.  I got a good chunk of work done but there’s still more to do.  This afternoon I was working more with the stack of Florence (Denyse Schmidt).  I’m really loving these fabrics.  All of them.  Usually in a fabric line there are a few prints I love, several that are just ok and then a few I don’t care for at all.  Not so with Florence. 

My goal for today is to get all of the flying geese made.  I’m about 2/3 of the way there.

The pattern I’m using included an option to create an extra little HST (half square triangle) at the same time I’m making the flying geese.  As I trim the seam allowance I toss the HSTs into this bin to use later.  I’m already looking forward to figuring out something fun to do with those.

I can hear the kids digging around upstairs looking for an after school snack.  That’s my cue – off I go!
