Lovely Saturday

I started the day out with a yoga class. I love doing yoga, it just calms me down and "centers" me every time I do it.
This is the second Saturday in a row that I gone to
this class. It's offered at a local yoga clothing store every Saturday. I've been meeting a friend there and then we did a bit of shopping after class. I have been on a two year quest for a pair of cordoroys that fit me. I have difficulty finding pants to fit my body and I really wanted some corduroy jeans. It really doesn't get all that cold here in Texas, but I wanted them anyway. I guess the stars were finally lined up. They were the color I wanted, they fit, and they were on SALE! I skipped home on a cloud and finally had an uninterrupted afternoon to sew. I have had an idea for a new purse in my head for weeks and I finally got started on it today. I have sketched out the pattern and decided I had better sew a quick "mock up" before I cut into my gorgeous fabric. The mock up was a success, so I have cut out all of the pieces and interfaced everything. The main body of the purse is velvet and I found the cutest Robert Kaufman for the lining. Don't you just love it??? I can hardly wait to get it finished. I have some really fun trim to pipe the edges with and some fun hardware for the handles.
I'm really excited about a new quilt guild that's forming here in Dallas. It's a local chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild. So far, I think we have about 14 members signed up. I found out about this chapter over at Lisa's blog Check it out, she has link to join the guild. We are going to have our first meeting soon over at City Craft. GREAT Store by the way! I am so excited that she is open and right down the street from my office. Woo Hoo!
