My first few days of "Temporary Retirement" have been quite nice, but I haven't spent much time on the computer. Maybe tomorrow I will have time to catch up on my blog reading. For now, there are just a few minutes to post.
On the stitching front, I've had a Happy Dance for my completed fall exchange project. I can't wait to share a photo. It will be a while though, since the project won't even be mailed until October.
I've also worked a bit on PIG. It's coming along nicely, although I still haven't managed to get a great photo of it.
I'm also busy counting the days until our cruise. I'm looking forward to the trip, but there is still a lot to prepare before we go. For one thing, I need clothes. Being a natural born procrastinator, I didn't start shopping until last weekend. The stores have all of their fall/winter stuff out now, and there's not much available that would be suitable for a tropical vacation. So... I decided to MAKE the things I need. Everything except swimwear, anyway. I did manage to find one of those yesterday-- the only one in the entire store that wasn't on sale. :( With just over 2 weeks before we leave, I've been spending a lot of time at the fabric store. My sewing machine is rapidly becoming my new best friend, which hasn't left a lot of time for stitching.
