this weekend .... roadtrip!

On Monday...or something like that ... Whit called and proposed an impromptu roadtrip to Chicago to see her fiance, Derek.  He's moving back home soon (yay! its no fun to be away from one's love while engaged) and he needs some help moving stuff back to good ole' South Dah-kohta!

I, of course, would never pass up a chance to spend 7 hours adventuring with my best friend - so naturally, I will be spending this weekend traveling with Whit on the wild open roads of Iowa ... yay ... sewing up a storm (hand stitching) in prep for the HandmadeMN Spring Market next Saturday - May 5th - in Uptown! Whoot!
