Yesterday I was working in my home office and we had opened the window, but there was a good stiff breeze blowing and by the time I'd been working for an hour I had added to my wardrobe a pair of socks, a pair of slippers, a sweater and a long sleeved shirt traded out for the short sleeved one I had put on when I got up.
No fair, Mother Nature!
Next week I have to go to Charlotte NC again for one last training session with my successor. She's doing a great job. It will be good to be in one room and not on the phone and sharing computer screens.
But it's warm there... last week it was in the 80s. I'm a Midwestern girl, not used to the balminess of all of that heat and humidity. Yesterday someone said to me "well at least it's not SOUTH Carolina, it's REALLY hot there!"
Newsflash, it's hot in NC too. Just because the state is named NORTH, that doesn't mean it's any cooler. LOL!
Today's tasks are to pick up a piece of wide quilt backing for a project, and also to make some small makeup bags to take out to Charlotte for the ladies with whom I have been working. That should not take too long, if I can just get down to the sewing room!
My favorite bags to make are the ones in the Mary Mulari book Travel Gear Made Easy. You can find it here if you want to order a copy: Mary Mulary's Website
Of course there are many patterns available if you want purses, totes, fancy bags of all sorts. I find Mary's directions so clear and easy to follow, I rarely venture past what is in that book.
I would post pictures but I've given them all away, except for the ones in my own purse, and they're getting a little shabby.
Time to get to work... I'm getting "the look" from the Boss!
