After spending four days in the Dominican Republic at our Corporate Retreat in amazingly warm, humid weather...I left this:
...to return to this:
There is something to be said for traveling in the winter! *LOL* The resort was amazing and even though the four days were very structured and work related...I did enjoy it.
However, I did return to a few sewing treats...
This is an Anna Sui sweatery fabric purchased from Fabric Mart prior to my departure. It works perfectly with the silk/wool tweed straight skirt that is in progress.
This grey wool boucle was also in the box because I loved the first two boucle pieces I purchased and figured I should just add one more.
I bought this rayon print from Emmaonesock because it just screamed spring - and I need a little spring in my life right now! *LOL*
The last things waiting for me were the new Sandra Betzina books. I love Sandra Betzina's teaching style...have since she had her Sew Perfect show on HGTV. And it was really kewl to see my friend Diane Egleston's name listed as one of the Editors of the books!
I don't know if I'm going to sew today. If I do I might not do enough to finish anything, but I'm home and hopefully it will be a little quieter and slower at work this week. Then maybe I can figure out what to sew during the three day President's Day weekend, where I'll be home again!
...as always, more later!
