So on the day of my last post, my sister was on her way to visit with us for a while before we all headed to my dad's for Christmas. That night we received a call from her saying she lost control of her car, sending it spinning out of control along the icy freeway. She crashed and walked away with no injuries. That night was a flurry of phone calls between my mom, my dad and me, trying to figure out exactly where she was, how to get her out of the freezing cold and what to do with her car. All is well and she is nestled safely at Dad's, a little earlier than expected but safe all the same.
So the next day (yesterday) was a bit of a flurry, finishing up projects, making sure Jenni really was OK etc. etc. We didn't make it out for our anniversary and didn't get our book. That's OK again-it's still our tradition and we have a date scheduled tomorrow to make up for it. Works out even better because National Treasure 2 comes out! So we'll go get dinner, pick up our book, get some new clothes for Dustin's fancy promotion he got at work (!!), and go catch the movie. Everyones still alive, traditions can be moved to other days. :)
(Isn't my little marshmallow man the cutest??!)
I have been a little stressed out however so I went to get some comfort food for lunch. While comfort food for some may be comprised of mashed potatoes and mac 'n cheese, I'm a little snoodier when it comes to food. Sushi, water cracker, lemon peel cheese and fresh mozzarella. YUM.
I came home to 2 happy deliveries. One humongous stack of flooring for the living room, Merry Christmas me! And even more exciting-a humongous stack of fabric from Michael Miller. Hoooo-ray! It's getting closer to being in stores, promise! Give it a little bit longer and you'll be able to get your hands on it! I'll be sewing up some fun projects that will be on the website in January to peek at. There is a free quilt pattern that will be up soon. Lots more things in the works-it will all be revealed in time. Oh-and if you're thinking "Sandi-didn't you already have fabric?" No, not really. These pictures were taken from the final strike offs, pieces generally the size of dinner plates, so this is even the first time I've gotten to play with real fabric yardage. 5 glorious yards of each print-I think I'm in heaven! Eliza certainly is enjoying herself.
Speaking of fabric and Michael Miller, Kathy just got back from a huge trip to Asia sourcing out new products. Why I wasn't invited is beyond me, but her pictures are definitely pretty. ;) Go see!
I'll be back once more before we head out of town-you have to see Eliza's Christmas dress. Soon...
