This weekend helped with my sadness over my lack of sewing. Arielle is in the US visiting family from Haiti and I’ve had her in Baltimore the last 48 hours. Marji is busy sailing the world and is in the Baltimore / Annapolis area and had a few of us over on her boat. Robin (who I don’t see enough of considering we are both in Baltimore) and BeeBee were on board. And, to my great surprise, there was Susan Khalje.
I may have sounded a bit stalkerish in that I was quoting her from PR Weekend LA two years ago. It’s hard not to gush.
So, while I didn’t actually get any sewing done, I spent pretty much my entire afternoon, on a boat, on gorgeous fall day, drinking wine and talking about sewing with friends. Seriosuly, good times.
I had grand plans with Arielle this weekend. We were going to work on slopers. We were going to see a textile exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art. We were going to go fabric shopping at A Fabric Place. But, what we did is get breakfast at Blue Moon (a two hour wait I might add for thier Capt. Crunch French Toast) and hit Joann Fabrics.
Time really does fly when you’re having fun. I have to admit, I kept making her call me Renee-Cidell. It’s SO MUCH MORE elegant with her French accent. Be warned all readers who speak the French. Should we meet, please be prepared to keep saying my name 🙂
