for today :: September 14, 2010
outside my window. . . sunny, warm . . . a wonderfully quiet morning.
I am thinking. . . of what all to take for my upcoming trip . . . to St. Louis (for business), & then to Minneapolis (for fun & relaxation!)
from the kitchen. . . coffee. . . so far. Thinking that later today I'll grill some chicken (a regular thing around here!)
I am wearing. . . my walking clothes. . . will be changing into "the summer uniform" (shorts, tee, no shoes)
I am creating. . . some new stitcheries & I'm letting myself do one more quilt design before Market. (I've been going back & forth with that decision. . . after all - there's only so much time & only one me!)
I am remembering. . . how good it is to get my walking in. . . daily.
I am reading. . . 'The Postcard' - by Beverly Lewis. . . (summer reading has been slower as stitching is taking up my evening time. . .
I am hoping . . . that I will get all the things/designs that I have in my head - done before Market.
I am hearing. . . the water fountain in the back yard. . . love that sound.
around the house. . . I'm trying to keep things in the studio & office organized. . . that becomes a but of an ongoing project at this point before Market!
I am going. . . to finish writing the directions my latest pattern today. . .! (yea!!!)
one of my favorite things. . . the small of coffee beans - just as they are gound. . . (ahhh!(
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . finish writing quilt directions, prepping stitchery projects for my trip, hopefully dying wool (if my wool order arrives!), & starting the final quilts for Fall Quilt Market. . . & walking, every day!

Bailey. . . "helping" with my pattern writing. . . (. . .& sometimes Twitter & blog checking. . .)
