Back from paradise!

Well, I am officially back from vacation! I have caught up on laundry, unpacked the suitcases (and put them away), went grocery shopping and other various errands. I have unpacked a box of fabric that I received from the Fabrics & Notions group while I was gone (although it didn't get very far, just out the box onto the table where it still sits). I uploaded all of my photos onto my computer, managed to go through them and upload some of them to picasa online. Here is a link if you want to view them! Hawaii pictures
I have been catching up on my favorite blog readings. I perused my newest issue of bwof (not much I am overly excited about yet). I don't have any sewing inspiration at the moment. I have included two pictures from our trip here. The first is the sunrise from our balcony in Kauai and the second is the sunset from our balcony in Maui. Enjoy them, I sure did every day!

Time to go

This is a no photo post. I have nothing new sewing wise to share with you. I had hoped to complete a couple of bathing suits this week to take on our hawaii trip (we leave tomorrow for 2 weeks!), but alas life took over every last minute. I spent a lot of time this week with my Aunt in the hospice facility. She left us this morning. It was her time to go. So sad, though. She was diagnosed with lung cancer in May. We were her family, she had no kids, and her dh had passed years ago. She was supposed to go with us to hawaii. I am glad that I got to help her this last week when it was so hard for her to do anything, she will be deeply missed by many. I have to pack my bags today so we are ready to go is always some sort of adventure. I depart for now, but will be back.
