September 25th, 2009 - Well I’m Off…….

… to the American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI. I hope I don’t blow the budget there or increase the stash. I don’t usually buy fabric, just gadgets and look at all the cool stuff. My sister is planning to meet me there and a blogger friend Mama Spark whose real name I don’t know. But that’s okay because I didn’t know what IRL meant either. I’m not all that techno savy and I don’t know the lingo. 

 Anyway I’ve was busy making the X-block quilt and I ran out of  fabric. I need 3.25 inches of the background fabric to make 4 more squares. My sister is going to bring me some. Isn’t she great!  And with all the leftover pieces I thought of making a few journal covers. They seem to be all the rage right now. I just have to figure out how to make one. It shouldn’t be all that hard. I let you know.

 Tonight is a non-sewing night. We have a fund raiser to attend and I don’t think I’ll be sewing after that. Then it’s early to bed, hopefully, and early to rise so I can go to the Sewing Expo. It only takes about 45 minutes to get there but sometimes the border traffic is backed up for whatever reasons. I ‘ll catch up on sleep on Sunday or spend all day ogling all the goodies I bought. I’ll try to remember to take some pictures and post them on Sunday.

See you then.

    For heaven’s sake – I saw your comment on Mamma Spark’s blog [her real name is Pam] and didn’t even realize I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time! If you see us, be sure to say hi – I’ll be the one with the funny shoes on, they have a coil in the back, and Pam will have her bright green shoes on. We’ll be at the Babylock exhibit looking at the new machine as soon as the doors open!
