Adventures in sewing

On the road with Vicki again. Took off from the studio to go up to Northampton, MA to Valley Fabrics. Its one of our fav quilt shops and sadly it's closing. We want to give Francesca our support... And pick up some bargains.

Chocolate Covered Crack

Ok I have a problem. Well, I have many problems but no one's perfect. Today's problem is Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds. I can't stop eating them. And they're so pretty.

Birthday Flowers

Yesterday was my birthday. My husband, though romantic, does not believe in buying flowers.

"I don't want to give you a gift that's just going to wither and die on the dinning room table," he says. I'm OK with this as he tends to buy me jewelry and electronics instead. But yesterday he surprised me with these flowers. (There was some jewelry involved too)

He is the coolest.

Super Pii Pii

Lunching with a geek is dangerous. Here's a funny link he showed me:

Still A Guy

Having lunch with my friend and ex-coworker, Matt. We're at a Panera Bread, enjoying the free WiFi. I know some consider this a yuppy haven, and I won't argue, but I do love the place. All kinds of people wind up here for lunch and coffee. We've got a heated business meeting going on 2 tables away. A job interview at the next table. A college kid studying behing us. A group of reitrees having coffee. A young couple furiously flirting just out of earshot.

Then there's Matt and I all geeked out with our Wacoms, personal WiFi cards, external hard drives, etc. The people watching potential is perfect here.

The manager just said to the potential hiree, "Everything is made fresh the night before." Ahh, yes, fresh.

Here's the point of this post - Matt just mailed me these lyrics and I thought they were pretty funny and made me think of my husband, who doesn't hunt but is still pretty manly.

Closer look.


Drink Milk Eat Chicken

Still doing the show. Long day. The hotel couldn't switch our room due to last minute on-line reservations.

After the show we didn't want to come back to the hotel room, so we checked out the Holyoke Mall which was...odd. There's a Target, AC Moore, Christmas Tree Shops and a Tailor all right in the mall. It was pretty crowded and a little unkempt.

A customer suggested a sushi restaurant that we decided to check out. Vicki hadn't ever had sushi before but was up for trying it. It was a little place called Ichibon and it was fantastic! We tried a bunch of things and had a blast.

On the way back, this is what we encountered in the parking lot.
