Sometimes, I spend a lot of time and energy avoiding certain tasks.  Good thing? Bad thing?  In the last 2 days, I have been avoiding hemming 2 pairs of pants (for Mom).  What have I done?

Yesterday I allotted myself 40 minutes to shop for a new pair of jeans. If you know me at all, you know I hate Hate HATE shopping.  In and out in 35 minutes with 3 pairs of pants (that don't need hemming) and a shirt! Best shopping day evah.

Then it was on to the second grade Halloween party ... even the chaos and overly sweet cupcakes was better than hemming pants.

I packed for my quilt retreat. Heading to MD tomorrow!

My good friend Carrie is supplying the machine and bedding.

I finished a pair of socks.

and wound yarn for another pair.  There is knitting at a quilt retreat.

I prepped some blocks for the Buttermilk Basin BOM. They're going to retreat with me because I really needed to bring too many projects.

And ... I made a really cute Christmas gift for Grandie Girl #1.  Tah-dah tomorrow.

And I cleaned up my sewing room, found my colored pencils that have been missing for months, did a load of laundry, went out lunch.

Now ... I will hem Mom's pants.

You go girl, sure sounds like you have been busy. Best part is getting ready for retreat. Weather is great up here this week so you should have a great weekend. Enjoy and I love the "converse" shoes.
