Whew...I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. While I had the weekend off (no call...yippie!), DH & I were soooo busy I feel even more tired than if I had worked all weekend. We returned from the conference Friday night then spent all day Saturday cleaning up our backyard and flower gardens. We planted, weeded and pressure-washed until we could do no more. Today we did more cleaning up around the house and then hosted a surprise birthday party for my father-in-law. Our first backyard barbecue of the season - yummy burgers on the grill, salads and then strawberry shortcake made by my MIL (had to pull out the vintage strawberry tablecloth for the cake!).
I plan to work on getting my Emmeline apron cut out this week for the sew-along. Also, I have plans to whip up a (looks easy but we'll see) wrap skirt from S.E.W. I'll keep you posted.
Now, gotta go finish unpacking/laundry from the conference and get ready for a busy week at work...
