Packing up!

Today, I got the car washed and packed the back seat with my sewing and art supplies!  My car will now sit until next Wednesday! 
Bob said that I'm ahead of schedule but I don't really see that I am.  I always get the back seat packed up so I know how many space save bags need to go on the seats so I can put the dogs crates on top.  It just raises the girls up so they can see outside a little better.

I had another picture of my sewing supplies but I can't locate it!   The picture above is just some of my dyeing/art supplies.  I'm taking some thermofax screens my friend Mary gave me along with screens for deconstructed screen printing. 
I don't take as much as I used to and this year I'll be working on a T-shirt quilt, which will take up lots of my time!  Saves on what I need to pack!

 And look closely...on the left side beside the fireplace is my little pocket wall quilt!  It looks nice beside the fireplace!

Monday was Bob's BD so we headed off to Black Rock restaurant.  It was a really good meal..especially for us who don't eat a lot of beef!  We each cooked our own 6 oz. sirloin on the lava rock and it was delicious!  Very tender!  We got a coupon for  a free dessert so when we get back home we are going back to get another meal and dessert...they look huge so we'll have to pace ourselves!

We started off with the onion ring tower!  Yikes!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to one and all!  I'll have one more post in before we leave showing my big gift for my daughter and son this year!  Hope they are as happy with their gift as I was to make it!


  1. Merry Christmas Robbie. Have a safe trip.
    xx, Carol

  2. OK- pace yourself packing and with that meal! The onion ring tower looks like a meal in itself! Have a safe trip. It's warm, warm, warm here currently.

  3. Merry Christmas, Robbie! I am so happy to be able to watch your journeys, both in location and in art! Happy trails <3

  4. You are one organized gal.....impressive..... Merry Christmas!
    My little nightmare....this morning my Keurig died.....not just clogged up as happened in the past....really dead. So, horrors I had to go to Walmart to get a replacement. We have no deparment stores here except a small trashy Belk's. You can't imagine how many people were in Walmart.....and I got there at 8:15 AM. Imagine what it looks like now...thoug it's pouring down rain here at 1:40 PM on Sat. afternoon.......maybe folks stayed home??

  5. Looks like you are ready for your flight south. Always organized and early is something to be proud of dear. Merry Christmas to you and yours...xo

  6. Merry Christmas! Safe travels and I can't wait to see what you made yiur kids.

  7. It's hard to believe you are packing up, it seems as if you have just come back! Time flies! I am planning to do some screen printing over the holidays as well.
    Merry Christmas
