Head for the Hills Sister!!!

Hi y'all! It's been over a week since my last post and I wanted to catch you up on what's goin' on.

I'll be headed off to Tennessee tomorrow to spend some much needed time with my Bag Sister.

It's been ages since we've seen each other so we'll have a lot of catching up to do. Even though we create together, email, call, and all that, it's different than being in person. I can't wait to see her new house, and be carted around the countryside for Fall in TN.

I am still recuperating very slowly from my surgery, so that's another reason I'm headed down south. To get some rest. I haven't had much help around the homestead so I need a break. I will be taking it very easy while I'm there that's for sure. Hopefully my intestines won't blow up from cabin pressure on the plane. Oh that wouldn't be pretty!

As far as By Way of Salem creations go, I have my 2 WIPS that I still have not painted. And I've been working on a couple of ideas as well. One for sure I'm NOT doing! That's the Bag's Bags I spoke of earlier; a kooky collection of bags, purses, etc... Oh heavens! That is just not my thing. I'll leave that to you expert seamstresses out there! I did make something, but it just doesn't reflect BWOS. Check that one off the list!

My other idea is a better fit for By Way of Salem and what we're about, and I'm very excited about them! I can't wait to show you all our "ScaryCats". They're very whimsical and colorful, and if they work out like I'm hoping, we'll be previewing those very soon. And yet another reason I'm headin' for the hills! To go over ideas and patterns with Bag #2. Of course her creative input is much needed. And as I'll be resting, we'll also be doing some sculpting together which I'm really excited about too. And going over plans for redoing her art studio. It's going to be a very creative reunion!

To all our friends, followers and everyone - have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Sounds like it is going to be a wonderful trip. Oh and the colors of TN this time of year should be rich. Have a great trip, but do make sure not to over do it. Bring back pictures.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
