Things have been very busy these last few weeks. I have been cutting slipcovers like crazy, including several for my friend Kim, who is moving to St. Simon's Island, Georgia in just a few short weeks.

I am also working on a new project and will be making a HUGE announcement very soon!

On top of all that, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to go up to Beverly Hills to see and hear Mike Dooley, AKA The Universe, read from his latest book.

The picture is a bit blurry (anyone know how to fix this?) but who cares? I mean, it's Mike Dooley! Seriously, it was well worth the time and the drive home in almost total fog. That sucked, but I did make it in one piece and without driving off the road, which would have been very easy to do as I could barely see it to begin with.

The pictures below are of Deb Hodge's latest creation.

As with everything she does, they are beautiful, amazing and so clever! The belts can be worn on your hips or waist, tied to the side, back or front. She'll be at Blissfest in Arizona this weekend.

I haven't been blog-hopping as much as I'd like. I apologize to all those blogs (and bloggers) I love that I haven't been able to visit.

Hi Tamerie,

I've been thinking about you and I'm glad you are well. You have been busy indeed! You and Mr. Dooley look pretty darn cute together!

Can't wait to hear the huge announcement! That belt is amazing! I am always amazed by the creativity out there...this is truly a stunning belt!

Love and hugs,

You look like quite the cute couple!! Worth a bit of fog, eh?

As Karyn said, the belts are stunning! What a talent she is. And I have heard of Kim, she was in BH&G for her pillows, right? I hope she picked up a lot of business through that.

Keep sewing girl...I understand when you are busy, but don't wait too long on that big announcemnt!!

That's great that you got to meet Mike Dooley and hear him speak. I get those messages every day and enjoy them so much.

I, too, am not getting around to visit as much as I'd like so no need to apologize to me!

Hi Sweetie- thanks so much for your words- too too kind-your are a constant source support. I am going to link right now. Also wanted to mention- I was at urban outfitters this weekend and I thought of you. They have these darling compact sewing machines for young peeps. I think I am going to get Olivia one for Christmas- a good way to relight her interest in sewing. I am also going to finally get my machine fixed-you have inspired me:)
Big Grateful Hug-
