Spring Break

Sara is home for Spring break. I can tell you I'm glad she's not on some beach somewhere doing gosh knows what! We've been entertaining ourselves with"Skype".
Last night she decided that we both needed to download Skype and see how it works. It's amazing. So easy to use. We spent the first half hour "skypeing" each other. She was in her bedroom and I was in mine. Sure doesn't take much to entertain us.

Today we are going north to a local mall. Hopefully my sister and her daughter are going to go with us. Sara wants to hit Old Navy, Sam's Club, and Dillards. I'm just hoping it doesn't hit my wallet too hard.

On the sewing front, not much going on. I still need to finish the sashings for Judy's quilt a long. Maybe today when I get back. I think I have til Tuesday to send my picture.
I did work at the local quilt shop yesterday. I spent six hours cutting fabric, talking to customers, and taking money. The talking and taking money was my favorite part. I did not buy any fabric yesterday! Hard to do when you are there for six hours. I'm trying to console myself with the idea that I got to fondle fabric all day, even if I didn't bring it home. Just need that fabric fix. The quilt shop gives me all the benefits, without the damage to my wallent (so far).

Off to the mall.....hope you are all sewing up a storm!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh.... I've been wondering about Skype! I think I'm going to have to try it myself!

Glad your daughter is home safe and sound. I couldn't sleep if Evan were away for spring break (even when he's 50!) -- hmmm maybe ESPECIALLY when he's 50! :)

Joyce, how wonderful. We have skype downloaded and use it here to catch up with family and friends. Its so great and as scary as it is to see people face to face at times --who cares its free!! Nice to hear Sarah is home, enjoy your time together

Have you finished your quilt from JudyL's Quilt-Along? I got stuck on a border that is too big. But I want to get it finished since I have the fabric stacked on my sewing table. I want to clear out that space, so I must finish the quilt (and cut the binding).
