My stitching bag is packed

My suitcase - not so much! I do have everything out and ready to pack - except for the things I have to use this morning and they will go in as used (make-up, etc)

Here are the two projects I'm taking with me.

Flip Flop Days - Just Another Button Company - aren't those buttons just too cute!

and Housework Never Killed Anyone by Lizzie Kate. I did change the purples in this one to blues. Now - don't expect to see a whole lot stitched on either of these when I get back. I've done these stitching weekends before and I know I don't make a lot of stitching progress - too much going on around me! It's all about the companionship and spending time with friends so I don't worry about how much I actually get stitched.

Linda - the fabric for the Red Thread project is Vintage Country Mocha Belfast.

You know how things look one color in a store and so different once you get outside - well the same thing happens with nail polish! I got my third ever pedicure yesterday (in preparation for my trip!) and what I thought was a bright pink looks closer to neon orange out in the sun. I told her I wanted something fun! I guess it's a good thing I declined the decals - I think I might be a little too old for neon orange and decals! LOL

Well - the girls will be here in 2 hours so I better get packing!

Have a great weekend!

I have my hands in the dirt so much, I never bother with doing my nails. I always admire beautiful nails, but I guess it's not in the cards for me!

Hope you have a great weekend. I'm going down to my best gal pal's house at the end of the month to stitch and gab and watch movies. I can't wait.

I am disappointed. I wanted to see your neon orange polish.

Have always loved the Flip Flop Days design. I love those buttons too. We had a customer stitch that 2 times on lime green fabric. Looked great.

I want to do that housework one, too.

I know you have already had your weekend and I know that you had a great time. I am still catching up on blog reading. I read the oldest ones first.
