Total IN: 0
Total OUT: 6 1/4 yards
Don't laugh too hard, it's better than nothing! But I better get a moving if I want to come anywhere close to my goal. Wow--I just figured out that I need to bust 9.61 yards PER WEEK to hit that goal. Hmm, maybe I better get off the clouds, ya think? Or not go anywhere. Nah, that'll never happen.

Look at this tree! It's amazing and SO well done! I'm not sure which person did it, but she did an excellent job. Well..actually, they all did.
Again--thank you to the Round Robin group and I look forward to participating with you again. Check out the sidebar for the Round Robin ring to see the rest of the quilts.

I would have loved to take one home. They had different sizes, shapes and styles. Any one of them would have been neat to have. Here is what the website says...
"December 8 sees the opening of an exhibition of glass sculptures by Design Elena, offering visitors the opportunity to buy them. Elena Graure-Manta designs and makes superb glass objects in her own atelier in Erftstadt in Germany. These brightly-coloured sculptures in the form of bags can be admired up until January 18, 2009."
Okay--are you ready for the best part of the day? I got a new purse...in the shape of a tulip...and it's pink! LOL Kirt just shook his head. But they were one of a kind purses by a designer and if I didn't get it and wanted to later, I wouldn't have been able to get one. So--since I'm not buying fabric....I got a purse!
Ta da! I think she's so cute and now I'm ready for spring.

one element--check out the background...that's all I'm saying. We were also entertained by her birds, who were so happy to have company in their room again. They just sang their hearts out for us!
I made several finger pincushions, one for her and then for other friends....(hey Annamarte--remind Ted that one is for YOU!!) I love these little pincushions, so handy to have close to your sewing.
Well, this is the first day that I have my own clothes again! We are off for a bit of exploring but I need to be home early as my hubby flew in today and we are going to dinner with friends. Then tomorrow Ted and I will go have a Spa day.....I can't wait!!

Ghana, AFRICA!! My bag is going on an adventure without me!! See where Ghana is? It's the little green area in the armpit (close to Nigeria) of Africa. So, what do you think about that? She is still not in my hands, but at least they know where she's vacationing! I told them to send her back immediately! I need her! I need her innards! Ted agrees!

Litchi, Lychee, Lichee
The fruit, commonly called a litchi nut, are about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter when fresh, and have a red brittle shell, with white translucent flesh and a single large seed. Litchi are eaten fresh or dried, and are also available canned in syrup. The flesh is fragrant and sticky, sweet and juicy; the dried fruit has a smoky taste somewhat like a raisin. A versatile fruit, they are excellent in fruit salads, sweet and sour sauces, and dessert sauce. The may be used in stir fries, salads, poultry dishes, and even served over ice cream.
I've never seen one or even heard of it! Remember that I live in the Midwest and we are pretty basic foods type of people, nothing exotic here!
I have started taking photos, but can't load any of them since my cord to the computer is in the suitcase. So, it's clip art for now..at least there is something to look at! LOL
