Catch Up - Never...

A friend in my pattern making class gave me some samples of Japanese silks. I was so excited. I'm not sure what I'll do with most of them, maybe make a bag. In September, my Japanese friend came to visit. She is an expert at Japanese calligraphy and she wrote a poem on a fan for me. I 've been wanting to frame it ever since and found a great shadow box for it but couldn't find the write background. You guessed it, one of the silks made the perfect background. : )

This week is Spring break for my pattern making class. I thought that I could get so much done if I pretended to be in class for three hours today. Unfortunately I felt like crap, but I did manage 2 hours of my "class." Got some patterns drawn and worked on a princess seam shirt.
