WIP Wednesday: 10.10.12

It's crunch time.  Just over 24 hours to Sewing Summit.  I'm getting really excited, but still feel like there is a million things to do.  I'm starting to pack.  Other people use suitcases.  Me?  I just use laundry baskets.  Pretty classy, huh?  I still have a lot to add to that basket, and I haven't even started packing my clothes yet.  (I promise I will use a suitcase for my clothes though).  Plus, there is the cooler of Diet Coke that I'll be bringing.  We've decided we'll sell Diet Coke from our hotel room at $1 can (I'm mostly kidding).  Last year all the Coke fans were in withdrawal as none is provided at the conference.

I've officially transferred all my stuff over to my new bag.  It's just the right size for Sewing Summit.

I made myself a maxi-skirt from this fabric the other night.  I've had this fabric for months and months and finally decided to just do it.  It was so fast and literally came together in an hour.  I love the skirt and plan to wear it one of the days at Sewing Summit.

In non-Sewing Summit happenings, a bolt of pink tulle and costume satin attacked my sewing desk.  This is why I should never sew Halloween costumes.  I'm dreading putting this together.  It took forever just to cut out.  Now I have to sew it all together.  That's not happening until after Sewing Summit, much to Miss C's dismay.  

This morning, just for fun, I did a little pre-Sewing Summit browsing while the kiddos were at school.  I headed to one my favorite local stores Material Girls Quilts, which happens to be a stop on the shop hop.

If you want to follow happenings at Sewing Summit, we'll all be Instagramming this weekend.  I'm @thebluechair.  You can also see everyone's photos under #sewingsummit.  Finally, for those who sadly aren't attending this year, you can join the party with cute miss AmyLouWho who has started the tag #notgoingtosewingsummit.  Last spring she started a tag for all those not attending quilt market and it was fun to see what people were up to.

Have a great weekend!  I'll be checking in next week.

  9. NO diet coke? I would die. I'm hoping to go to the SS next year and will have to keep this in mind.

  10. Have fun! I hope you don't mind me asking, but how can those of us without smart phones access instagram? I have tried, and it's very difficult. Are you on twitter? I'll be using the latter hashtag, I'm afraid...
