An Update and a Giveaway

A very good morning to you all this gorgeous Friday here in Southern California!

School is out!

I'm on break from school for...12 days.  What can I do in 12 days?  

Sew as much as I want.
Actually go to the movies.
Not think about the next Econ exam or stress about what else is due this week in EDSS 300S.
Read, read, read.  

I can also do lots of yoga.  Within an hour I am off to spend the weekend with two of my closest friends at the White Lotus Yoga Retreat Center in Santa Barbara, CA.   I'm looking forward to great conversation and food, challenging yoga and hiking in the hills above Santa Barbara. Too bad I can't bring my sewing machine.   

Now for my first ever giveaway!  It is time for me to pay it forward with my own giveaway.  I am participating in the Sew Mama Sew 2011 Giveaway Day on Monday, May 23rd for the first time.   Stop by on Monday for a Yoga Retreat recap/photos and details about the giveaway.

Have a great weekend everybody!
