Off I Go !

I am so ready. Bags are 95 % packed. My heart is 100% full. I feel like that little kid in the Disney World commercial saying "I'm too excited to sleep !!!"

I made myself an apron to mess up in the midst of all my crazy prep. yesterday. I couldn't use the beautiful one that Arlene made me last spring as it is just too beautiful, so I took an old jean apron I had from Ikea that I was using in the basement stained glass room and used a t-shirt transfer sheet and a piece of cotton muslin. I printed the piece above with my logo onto the t-shirt transfer (reversed the image so the writing looks right), ironed it onto the white cotton muslin, grunged it up a bit with some fabric paint and sewed it onto the jean apron with crazy stitches (easy for me who has a hard time sewing straight !). I didn't have time to photograph it but I will be sure to get a shot of me wearing it from Squam.

Okay, this is it. I am shutting down the computer. Carolyn will be here in about 2 hours. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee ! Just so excited !

Love you guys ! You are definitely the wind beneath my wings (too bad that song is so corny - the message is beautiful!). The Queen is air born...

What a clever chica you are!!!! I love this idea...everyone will be able to identify you and I have a strong feeling that photographs of you in this apron will appear on other blogs around the globe after the retreat. Bon voyage and ENJOY!! :)
