I have to get busy today and get everything packed and ready to go as we take off early tomorrow morning.  I auditioned some stash fabrics for the back of the bird pin cushion but didn't find anything I liked.  I ironed this but it still looks wrinkly.

I had some ultrasuede the color of the bowl but it just didn't look right.  I have lots of pieces of dupioni silk but this piece needs a more homey textured material.  I think a wool would be good.

I'm taking along a piece that needs to be framed.

I seem to find perfect frames at Stitchville so we'll see if my luck holds.

I started on the back of the Jubilee Pin Cushion.  I'm changing the letters to make it more readable.  It is slow going as it is over one.  UGH.

Then last night I just picked up stuff to work on that was just laying around.
A kit I bought on Ebay that has some whitework.  It is so easy to get off on this one.  But I know it will be pretty when it is done.

Then the Spring Fling project that is half done.

 I should finish this.  I finished one section and started another.  But this is slow going.  Chris has hers all done.  She puts me to shame with all she gets done.
I'm going to be looking for some steampunk material to finish this off into a bag of some sort.

I'm nervous and excited today so I don't know how much I can get done today.  We'll see.
I'll see you when I get back.
