Rope Ends

Only 2 more days until my trip! I'm coming down to the wire on having everything situated for it. I still need to locate the DD's birth certificate. Something I'll definitely do tonight. We bought the last few things I thought we might need for the flight last night--M&Ms. Seriously, I worry more about the travel than the vacation. It's always puzzle figuring out how to keep the girl entertained for the 3-4 hours it will take to get to Alabama. It was easier when she was tiny. She would just pass out and sleep the whole flight once the cabin became pressurized, LOL!

Yesterday, I wrapped up my A Little Fabric, A Little Chocolate Swap--but I missed the mail man this morning! The last few weeks he'd been coming at 3p and today he came in the morning :/ Tomorrow is a new day ;) As long as it gets out and on it's way before I leave I'll be happy.

Though, I can give a hint of what I was working on:
I completely loved what I was working on. In fact, I want to use the same design and technique to make a cover/pouch for my Nook :) I think it was very successful. I think I'll make it tonight!

Ticking Down

My trip to Alabama is quickly approaching. I leave next Saturday! I'm excited and nervous--mostly because I have half a million things left to do around the house. And I'm in two swaps for this month :x I finally got some inspiration for MRSA 2. I decided to combine several attributes from my partner's favorites into one item. Hopefully, she'll like it. I think she should since it has elements from works she liked. Anyhow here's what my work table looked like yesterday:

We aren't supposed to mail before the 15th. I'm going to have to take it with me to Alabama and mail it there. I don't trust the DH to remember, LOL! A happy secondary event: I received my fabric order from Banberry. I'm so excited. Their sale was quite awesome for Memorial day and I was able to snatch up some appropriate fabric for the backing of my 3x6 Bee quilt. Granted, I still need 1-2 more quarters before I can put it all together, but I'm covered for the backing, LOL. It was a steal at 2.95 a yard! I couldn't pass it up.
So, yes, a very productive and happy day :D
