Thank you 'sew' much for the picture! Awesome laptop cover - ever since you have mentioned it in your blog I have been thinking about one for my laptop! I started sewing to make quilts and have moved toward fashion items like cute skirts and neat bags, it is really fun and I love having one-of-a-kinds! Thanks for the book idea - will pick it up and I wrote down a few more titles from your picture!
Exude creativity!!!!
Namaste.....

Totally! I would love to see more pics of the pink palace... what would also be cool (weird, maybe, but cool) if you could post "what's in my purse" I LOVE to see the contents of the bags of women who I admire...

Way cute cover! Congrats! Was it a pattern or a la Kimberly?

Also... given all the request for pinkp alace photos... how about a pictorial that coincides with your 100th episode?!? And personally, I would love to not only see more photos of the pink palace... but also see more photos of your book stacks!!

Newsflash!
I was inspired to look for some free sewing projects online and if you browse www.amybutlerdesign.com and download her free sewing patterns, there is one there for a yoga bag and it looks marvelous!
That is now officially on my project list along with the laptop cover!
Yes, I agree, photos with the #100 would superb!

I'm nursing a cold/sinus infection due to the ever changing DC weather, and happened upon a delightful tea I wanted to share wtih you -- Bigelow Fruit & Almond. Not only is it delicious and very soothing, but it has a very soothing aroma that will fill your room (or office, in my case) and be certain to lift your spirits. :)

Also, for all HTCs -- if you live in the DC area and are hankering for a tranquil sojourn, I highly recommend a stroll through the United States Botanical Gardens (www.usbg.gov. It's absolutely gorgeous and revitalizing, especially with the classical music playing and gentle mist in the atmosphere. :)
