Wow, it’s a little hard to believe this day is over. It has certainly been a busy one, once I managed to roll out of bed, anyway. I came out to the living room, to be greeted with an email letting me know that I had an order to get ready. ‘What? Already?’ I asked myself incredulously. And yes, it was true, so I got to work making a couple of tags. An hour and a half later I finished that, and have decided that I need to rethink the idea of hand embroidered tags- time consuming much? But they are so cute. Next time I make one I’ll take a picture to show it off.

Then there were seams to be double checked, threads to be snipped, and wrapping to be done. I decided it would be a good idea to walk the two and a half miles to the post office, which would knock out an errand and my exercise in a fell swoop. Plus fresh air and good sunshine, it was great! I listened to Gogol Bordello the whole way there and back, which is perfect traveling music for me. Whether by foot, plane or train. They were with me for much if my time in England.

While I was out, I stopped at Goodwill, and found a few choice goodies.

This lace is amazing! I have to figure out some great ideas to use it to its full potential.

And this little grab bag of vintage supplies- for a buck! I love it.  Not sure what I’m going to do with those repair needles though.

I finished an adorable skirt combo today, after I got home, took a shower and a nap that is. I will have pictures on Saturday, so stay tuned!
