My Bag is Packed . . .

and I'm ready to go! Well, almost. There are still a couple things to do before I can leave for a day of stitching with my friends.

Like sleep. Yep, it's Friday night, after 1 a.m., and I just emerged from the Sweat Shop to find the house quiet and the fam already in bed.

You may have noticed a distinct lack of quilt content in this blog over the past couple of days, and here's why:

I've been 'sperimenting. I've never printed onto fabric before, and I wanted to give it a try, so I bought a digital download on Etsy and printed it onto fabric. Then I added color with my colored pencils. And stitched it onto other fabric. And stitched THAT onto other fabric. And made a Halloween treat bag.

And tomorrow I'm going to give it to my stitchery hostess. Shhhhh! Don't tell! I think she'll be so busy getting things ready for us that she won't have time to read my blog. And I guess I'll need to make another Halloween treat bag soon for myself, but my next project is to start working on a couple of projects for the wool class I'll be teaching in a couple weeks. In fact, the supplies for that are in the bag--I'll be working on it with my friends tomorrow.

I guess I'd better go get that sleeping thing out of the way so I can go have fun in a little while. Thanks for visiting!
