We made it

I started writing this post but didn't have anything really interesting to say so I didn't hit Publish.

The drive was pretty uneventful except that it rained the whole way.

Today we are in meetings all day. In a couple of minutes we are going to see the new yarns for Filatura di Crosa fall 2011. Very exciting.

The morning started out poorly for Bev. She dropped her curling iron and grabbed it before it hit the ground burning her hand.  It is a ceramic curling iron and there was no way she was letting it hit the tile floor and break.  Beth and I made a trip out to find a drug store and came back with supplies. Now we are her errand girls for the day.  During a break in meetings we ran out for lunch and another trip to the drug store.

I spent the night with Bev in case she needed anything during the night.  Beth enjoyed having her own room so it looks like I am with Bev for the rest of the trip.  Her hand is doing better but her fingers are all blistered.

Beth and I spent the morning helping out in the Trendsetter/Naturally booth during their set up.  After doing their mannequins and setting up the heavy parts of the booth we left.  California Pizza Kitchen for lunch.  Unfortunately The Cheesecake Factory is in the same mall.  We stopped and got a piece of cheesecake to go.

When I got home and checked my emails, Larissa from Offhand Designs sent an email showing the new fabrics for fall.  I WANT ALL OF THEM!!

Scottie has a new design for fall.  Love it.  On the original bag the shoulder strap was too small for me (alright for most people but it wasn't comfortable on my big arms and shoulders).  Here is the new bag in Practically Perfect.

This is what Larissa says about the new look
We are in the middle of a few major transformations and are so excited to finally reveal our new look and line! The Zhivago, Gatsby and Scottie will now feature a lockable closure, short rolled leather handles and a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap.

There are three more new fabrics.  This is Tuppence.  The other two are going to be a surprise for later posts.

I can't wait to get to the show in the morning and see the new bags in the new fabrics.

While logging in today there was the option to see the new blog templates.  I liked this one so my blog will have a new look for a while.  It could keep changing for me to try others.

love the new look of your blog. Can't figure out how you had time to change it While You Are Travelling.

I have good faith that Cheesecake is very restorative for hand injuries and all major booboos.

Safe travelling and say hi to Bev and Beth for me.
