Why?

Why, when something cool happens, do I never remember that I have a camera in my bag? Riddle me that one, dear readers.

Monday night, I was fortunate enough to have cocktails with Melissa (and her new husband James), who are in the States, and at that point in Philadelphia, on their honeymoon. We met near my office and talked for an easy 2 hours before they went off to dinner and I went home for mine.

As our kind are known to do, I admired her Vogue 8576 dress and Patrones jacket, and Melissa remarked on my BWOF September turtleneck. It's so nice to be among my own kind. James more than held up his end of the conversation - the man can talk shirting fabric with the best of us. Melissa showed me a few of the professional photos from their wedding; make sure you check out her blog when they're posted because they are fabulous.

In other happy news, I'm an almost-auntie! The baby for whom I sewed all that ridiculous pinkness was born last Thursday, more than 2 weeks ahead of the doctor's due date, a week ahead of Dad's best estimate, and right on time as far as Mom was concerned. I'm hoping to meet her this weekend.

There's some sewing being done, but it's more craft show stuff. I'm trying to knock a bunch of it out before vacation, which is coming up shortly. A hint of our vacation destination is attached. Where in the world am I off to?

You are off to Belgium--Bruges (Brugge) to be exact. But I'm cheating--I was there two weeks ago and loved every minute of it! Have a wonderful time!

I get to meet Melissa on Friday. So much fun to meet fellow sewers!

Oh, you're going to Bruges! One of my favourite places. You'll love it, and will probably come back loaded with chocolates and exquisite lace. Have a great time!
