Skiing in the Alps

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

No.  It isn’t me skiing on the Austrian Alps.  It’s our Heidi.  She returned back to Brussels after a week in the Austrian Alps.  This is a photo of she and Raphael at the top of one of the mountains.  Isn’t it breathtaking?!

Heidi hadn’t been skiing much before.  She said she really enjoyed it after taking some lessons.  She’s in great shape because she is a long distance runner, plus takes ballet classes several times a week.  And, keeps up with the Jr. Highers in her classes at the International School of Brussels.

Not much time to catch up, but I will when I get on the cruise ship.  It’s such a tough life that I lead.  Ha!

The only thing new here in San Diego and at our house is my newest pattern "Little Star Pincushion and Sewing Folder".  I’ve been on a sewing supplies holder kick lately.

I do like having a tri-fold soft container to hold larger items like full size scissors, rulers, notebook, pencils, pens, knitting needles, crochet hooks, etc.

In May I’ll be teaching my Penny Pink Pocket, which is a sewing caddy doll.  I liked her so much I created two others in different colors.  Penny Pink Pocket will stay with someone after the Think Pink Gala in Aurora, Ohio.  Thus, I needed to make a couple more so I’d have something to hold all my other sewing needs.

Until next time, keep sewing!
