Hello!

Sorry I haven't posted lately. I was out of town for a long weekend and then I was home for a week without a computer. The computer's back, along with my DH. We share a computer at home and it's fine until he has to travel. I may get one of my own very soon.
We traveled to San Antonio to see our kids and grandkids. I'm always excited to go, always have a great time and am always tired when we get home. My DH and I have 6 kids and 4 grandkids between us. It's great they're all in SA. When we visit, we get to see everyone! I love it!
I've been working on different things ... again. A purse, a top, a quilt top. a jacket and yearbooks for a group I'm in. The yearbooks took up most of my free time last week. When I got tired of them, I'd pick up something fun to work on ... the purse, the top, etc.
I took a jacket class last Monday night at a local quilt shop. I finished it last night. Well, almost. I have a little hand sewing to do and I need to find a button for it. Here's the pattern - Never the Same Twice from Indygo Junction. (Can you believe it? a link! WhooHoo!) I have to admit ... when I saw the pattern I wasn't crazy about it, but a friend was teaching the class and I decided it would be fun to make. When I saw other jackets people were making, the class was even more fun! I'll post a picture of it very soon.
Have a great day!

Did you match the jacket to one of your skirts?
Has there been any news on the purse book thing?

San Antonio -- ooh, jealous -- I's love to go back! I still fondly remember some caramel topped rolls we had from Mi Tierra.

Welcome Back. Wow, what a cool sewing project... I like it, especially the kimono sleeves.
