Killing Time

I'm housebound, waiting for the packageman.  I'm not sure if FedEx's heads up that "a package needing a signature" will arrive today is a good thing.  It's almost 2:30pm, and I haven't seen hide nor hair of him. Had I not known he was coming some time today, I would have been to JoAnn's first thing and purchased some interfacing.  Had that happened, I would be done with Penny's flower girl dress.  But no, I'm sitting home WAITING.  I don't do waiting well, believe you me. 

I need to do SOMETHING, so I finished another birthday card.  This one went out in today's mail.  The mailman also seems to be taking his sweet time.  Usually he has come and gone by 10am.  Not today.
I've had 4 of these bone fish buttons for several years.  I doubt I will ever make any kind of outfit that will utilize them as well as accenting this little quiltlet.

Lunch came and went, and still no packageman.  I just finished a pillowcase for Penny.  When I told her the sash for her dress will be purple, she pouted.  She likes pink.  We tried to explain that it's Monica's wedding, so Monica gets to pick the colors, but she still wasn't happy.  Maybe if I put this in the box with the dress it will satisfy her craving for pink.
I saw this yard of hand dye at Best of the Valley, and it called out to me.  I didn't buy it during the show, but when I found out it was still available, I jumped on it.  It looks even better than I'd imagined it would.

oh.  I just tested the link and realized that I haven't updated the home page in much too long.  The 2015 show is April 10-12.  Mark your calendars now.

And I guess I know what I should do next, while waiting for the packageman:  website updates.  No time like the present to get that one underway.  Perhaps the next time I check in the changes will be submitted.  Goals are good.

Or, as a friend said to me today, "Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooals! are good!"  (I think she might be watching some UniVision World Cup too, heh heh!) 

Gotta run.  Lots to do, never enough time.

That pillows see is so cool. My best friend would go not for it.

The only reason you got that luscious pink fabric is because I did not happen to see it. Wow!
