A bittersweet way to start the day - M and Bear left on their 7 AM flight to go home. Yep - She's exactly like me - very disorganized just before leaving the house on a trip! I must say that we had a great visit and was a lot more fun than I anticipated. I guess she was right - that means that we're both growing up! So the sad part is that she has gone home, but on the bright side - I managed to get her to clean up a fair amount of stuff that was laden with dust and guess what - I can move onto Phase Two of my plan! You'll have to wait for that one. There is still stuff that needs to be addressed- it's not much, but there are two bookcases and one closet that we didn't get to. But I'm OK with that. We did what I wanted.
Have a safe flight M - it's crazy windy out there!
Third tuffet class was on Saturday. We were 7 in the class, plus Paul and myself. But we ended up with 10 tuffets.

Always fun to see what people choose for their fabric. And YES - I got mine completed. I guess I don't have to tell you which one is mine.

|Mine with bargello (cheater bargello)|
|Wendy - seriously - this was gorgeous and look at the work matching that motif!!!!|
|Paul - a fun one for the grandchildren|
|Kaffe Fassett - beautiful florals|
|Tim Holtz - funky prints|

|Anne with wild colors and decorative machine stitching on some of those wedges!|

There is one more class scheduled at The Hobby Horse so that's the last chance to make a tuffet. However, here's the thing. I still have loads of the upholstery batting so if anyone wants a kit - I'd be happy to put the supplies together for you. Upholstery batting, foam, upholstery button, and wooden base as those are the hardest things to find. The rest is easy!
We had a great day at sit n sew yesterday and I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. I'm off to Monday sewing and I have a ton of stuff to get completed this week. I can't even think about it at the moment.
Have a great day!!!
