home again.

Here's my unfinished traveling companion.
This little "placematforthemiddleofthetable"
kept me busy on the plane when I wasn't watching a movie...
and in the very few moments I had of quiet time while I was away.

I took some embroidery floss and beads...
and doodled away on this pretty fabric.
I think I'll leave it unfinished in the middle of my table
and take it along next time I head to a waiting room.
Seems like I'm in waiting rooms quite frequently.

Here's the reason I didn't get too much done.
This girl kept me busy!!
And what a fun busy it was!!!
There were tennis matches, friends to meet,
restaurants to explore....
She even arranged a shopping date with a
very creative wife of one of the professors
while she took exams!

What a treat!!!

I really had to limit purchases.

You all know how airline travel is these days!


But that didn't stop me from getting some
super cute fat quarters!
Who could resist these?

    I like the goodies you brought back..and that table mat is gorgeous! I used that center fabric in a project and it's one of my favorites. So clever of you to embellish it. :)
